Besides Dennis, and my family on the farm, my other great love is the nifty tomato. It is in my top 2 food choices ever. Upon grabbing the little hiding tomato in the garden, and popping into your mouth on a hot summer day is; about the most terrific taste and feeling one can have. I typically feel like "Julie Andrews" in "The Sound of Music" when she twirls about singing about the "Hills are alive....." I just can't help it. I eat so many tomatoes in fact, (all seasons) that I honestly get those double darn sores in your mouth from the acid. That aside, I haven't met a tomato I have like. This is why this recipe, to me, is quite simply one of the best uses of a tomato that has ever been discovered. Quite honestly, I love ground beef tartare. Sometimes due to dietary smartness, I can't always go around and order Beef Tartare. Jacques Pepin, (great, great Chef) came up with the wonderful addition to the tartare world. I especially love the use of tomato water sauce. Read on, and see if you wouldn't like it too.
