STEAK TARTAR (Das Rindfleisch Tartar)

1 lb Lean hamburger
1 tspoon mustard
1 onion
1 dill pickle or 1 tblespoon capers
salt, pepper to taste
maybe 1 tspoon paprika
if you have, a dash or two of Maggi {a vegetable spice to be found at supermarket, usually next to mustard, vinegar etc.}

The orinal recipe calls for an egg-yolk. But the sacre of Somenella forbids this.

Mix well wiith fork. Let "steep" for at least an hour.
Serve on buttered crisp sourdow rolls, or toasted buttered bread. Germans LOVE it !
