1 kg beef eye fillet, cut into 5mm dice 80 gm golden shallots, peeled and very finely chopped 50 gm small salted capers, rinsed and drained 35 gm cornichons, finely chopped 2 tbsp Dijon mustard, plus extra to serve 1 tbsp tomato sauce 2 tsp brandy 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce 8 anchovy fillets, finely chopped 2 egg yolks Tabasco, to taste 6 ciabatta slices (about ½cm thick) olive oil, for brushing coarsely chopped parsley, to serve
