Sprinkle the meat with salt (not too much, just to flavour it), spread the mustard on both sides and then sprinkle with thyme leaves. Heat a frying pan with a little oil till quite hot, and sear the meat on both sides, but keeping it rare. When done, add a dash of white wine so as to make a sauce with the mustard and oil. Serve the meat with a few tablespoons of the mustard sauce.

If you really don’t like horse meat, you can of course substitute beef
