Mexican Steak Tartare

The Mexican version of Steak Tartare has almost the same ingredients as the pico de gallo salsa, which are onion, tomato, and lime juice. For this reason, this dish is sometimes called Carne a la Pico de Gallo, although Carne Tártara, Carne Apache, and Ceviche de Carne are more popular names for it.
