Ingredients

Fish Sauce Dressing (Nuoc Mam Cham):
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
Steak Tartare:
  • 14 ounces sirloin
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fried garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fried red Asian shallots
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted rice powder
  • 6 leaves fresh culantro, finely sliced
  • 1 bird's eye chile, sliced
  • 1 large handful Vietnamese mint, finely sliced
  • 1 large handful bean sprouts
  • 1 large handful perilla leaves
  • 8 quail egg yolks, reserved in half-quail shells

Directions

For the dressing: Place the fish sauce, vinegar, sugar and 1/2 cup water in a bowl, and whisk together until the sugar is dissolved.

For the steak tartare: Remove all visible sinew from the sirloin. Using a sharp knife, cut it into very small pieces, about 1/8-inch wide.

In a bowl, add the chopped beef and lemon juice and mix well. (The lemon juice will slightly citrus-cure the beef.)

Now add the fried garlic, fried shallots, garlic oil, toasted rice powder, culantro, chiles, mint and 1/3 cup of the dressing. Use your hands to combine everything until well incorporated. Divide the mixture among 4 plates. In a separate bowl, mix the bean sprouts and perilla leaves. Add the bean sprout and perilla leaf salad to each, then top with a quail yolk in its shell.

Serve with the remaining fish sauce dressing. 

Consumption of raw or undercooked eggs, shellfish and meat may increase the risk of foodborne illness.
