but it’ll be gone after today

It's still there:

And since the US Copyright Office says recipes aren't copyright-able (see here:, I'll post the recipe:

2 egg yolks
3 Tbs. chopped white onions
3 Tbs. very small capers
6 sprigs parsley, leaves only, chopped
6 anchovies, roughly chopped
1 Tbs. Creole mustard
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. Tabasco Caribbean style steak sauce (or Pickapeppa)
1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp. kosher or sea salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
12 oz. tenderloin butt ends, or round steak

1. Combine everything except the beef in a large bowl. If you're doing this at the table, a wooden salad bowl is best.

2. Slice the beef about a quarter-inch thick. Using a meat mallet, pound it until it becomes quite thin. Then chop it with a sharp French chef's knife on a wooden cutting board.

3. Put the beef into the bowl and, with two large forks, blend the seasoning ingredients with the beef. Check the seasonings, and add salt and pepper as needed. Form the beef into a fanciful pattern on the plate for a dramatic effect. Or not.
