The term yukhoe (육회, lit. "raw meat") refers to the traditional Korean beef tartare seasoned with a marinade.
Since the meat should be eaten raw, it is important that it is very fresh. Tartare should be served very cold, so keep the meat in the refrigerator until you have to use it (or even in the freezer for at least 15 minutes).
The recipe calls for the use of the nashi fruit, but you can supply it with a sweet and juicy apple.
The recipe is for one person.
1 thick slice of fresh beef fillet, washed in cold water and buffered
1/2 nashi (or red apple)
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon of toasted sesame oil
1 finely chopped spring onion
1 grated garlic clove (or even more according to your taste)
freshly ground black pepper
1 very fresh egg yolk
