Bison Tartare

Bison Tartare 4.000

Michael Temchine for The Washington Post

Feb 17, 2010

This spicy recipe comes from Peter Smith, chef-owner of PS 7's restaurant. It's nothing like traditional beef tartare. It is full of flavor and packs a healthy dose of heat from whole-grain mustard and chopped pickled chili peppers. For a clean presentation, use a 2- to 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter to shape your patties.

Bison is available at many local stores, but Smith uses the bison from Gunpowder Bison & Trading in Monkton, Md. It can be ordered online at gunpowderbison.com or by phone at 410-343-2277.

Smith recommends serving the tartare with toasted rye bread and pickled peppers.

Ingredients
  • 8 ounces boneless bison rib-eye, trimmed of all fat and silver skin, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon Pommery or other whole-grain mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
