To make steak tartare, remove all visible sinew from beef. Using a sharp knife, cut steak into very small pieces, about 4 mm wide.
Place in a bowl and add lemon juice. Mix well. (The lemon juice will slightly citrus-cure the beef.)

In a separate bowl, mix bean sprouts and perilla leaves. Add to each serve of tartare, then top with a quail eg
