Hi, I'm Tim Love, and every year, I try to make it up to Chicago for a Cubs game. That Wrigley Field is unbelievable, and being a baseball fan from Texas, I appreciate the history of the place. And when I book my flight from Chicago, man, my mouth just starts water for those hotdogs. Is unbelievable. However, after the game, always make a reservation at my good friend's grand L.A. holes. Probably some of the midwest's best cooking. His tri tip tar tar is at the top of the list. But if you can't make it to Chicago, you don't have to compromise cuz I've got an easy to make recipe for tri tip tar tar, right here. Tri-tip tar-tar can be a little bit intimidating, because most people get a little nervous about tar-tar. This one's real simple, look at these simple ingredients I've got. I've got some ground tri-tip here and you can cut it by hand, or you can run it through your grinder at home, and it's a great cut. It's very inexpensive and it's got a lot of marbling and flavor to it. Then we've got 1/4 cup of just regular old household mayonnaise We've got a quarter cup of capers here, half a Serrano chili for a little bit of heat, cuz that's the way I like to roll, half a lemon that we're gonna use the juice off of, and then at the end, we wanna top it off with these [UNKNOWN] little quail eggs right here to keep a lot of flavor. Let me show you how easy it is to make this tartare. I've got my pound of meat here that I've already minced up. Add in the mayonnaise. Keep the brine in a [INAUDIBLE] Cuz it adds a little bit of vinegarness to your tartare here. It's rare that I'm making anything that doesn't have a chile in it. And then of course we're gonna squeeze a little bit of lemon juice in here. Now make sure you kinda hold your hand tight like this to catch any seeds that might come out of your lemon. And we're gonna mix this up to where all the mayonnaise is incorporated into the meat, along with the lemon juice. I'm gonna add in some salt and pepper. I like to use fresh ground pepper. Add a little bit of olive oil. Just keep it nice and loose for when we serve it. My mouth's watering already. Now once we get all that incorporated, serve it right up here on this dish with some crackers. Make yourself just a little bit of indention just like that, Talk about these beautiful quail eggs. Look at that. I can't let that go without me trying a little bit of it. So mix up the quail eggs right into it. Gives the meat a little bit more body. You know what I mean? Spread some up here. I actually use unsalted crackers cuz you got plenty of flavor underneath. And remember, when it comes to your favorite food and places to travel always bring Pepcid Complete so you never have to compromise.
