And for the more Predacious Gobbler
Steak tartare is a meat dish made from finely chopped or ground raw beef or horse meat. Tartare can also be made by thinly slicing a high grade of meat such as strip steak, marinating it in wine or other spirits and spicing it to taste, and then chilling it. It is often served with onions, capers and seasonings (the latter typically incorporating fresh ground pepper and Worcestershire sauce or Tartare sauce), and sometimes with a raw egg, and usually served on rye bread. The word is derived from the name Tartars or Tatars, an ethnic people from Eastern Europe and part of Asia.
