I was just reading this article below which is an interview that my heartthrob, Richard Armitage, recently did in New York City. The interview was done in a restaurant over lunch. Richard was eating steak tartare. I had no idea what steak tartare is except that it must obviously be steak, but I had no idea how it was made, so I looked it up.
Steak tartare is raw beef with a raw egg yolk on top of it. I wanted to gag when I saw this picture of what steak tartare looks like....UGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
Since I am vegan I would not eat a steak that is cooked much less raw. This is so unhealthy. Raw beef can have bacteria in it that can make you very sick. Richard Armitage and I could not have a more opposite eating habit. I wonder what one's breath smells like after eating a meal like this. To each their own, but you could not pay me to eat this...LOL

Tartare de steak et Richard Armitage
As a vegan, it is HIGHLY unlikely that I will ever taste this dish. However, I became intrigued by it since so many people love it. I searched online for the different ways that it is prepared and how it looks afterwards. According to what I learned about steak tartare, the raw egg on top is optional, but according chefs in France if you want it made correctly, the raw egg is required. In the above photo the steak tartare also has capers and chopped onions. This is drool worthy to beef eaters. If I expect to be respected for being vegan, then I must respect people who enjoy eating meat, even if it is raw.
I wonder how much Richard enjoyed that steak tartar. I bet that Richard is a hearty eater and enjoyed every last morsel.
Does Richard eat raw beef to help keep those arms built up? YES, I know that I am being silly here.
Err...moving right along, here are some more photos of the infamous steak tartare dish that Richard and so many others love.
I do not mean to be disrespectful but this looks like beef that was left out too long and turned brown. Otherwise the presentation is great.
Great presentation, but I still would not eat it.
The dishes in a few of the photos reminded me of dog food, but I won't say which ones out of respect for the food preparers.
I could not resist Googling vegan steak tartare to see what would come up. This is the result that I got...

Well, this was a bit of silly fun for a change.
