Fiorentina steak

Method

  1. 01 / Prepare the meat

    Make sure the steak is at room temperature.

    Pat it dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.

  2. 02 / Heat the grill

    Preheat the grill (preferably charcoal) to a very high temperature.

  3. 03 / Cook the steak

    Lay the steak on the hot grill and cook it for 5-6 minutes per side without turning it.

    Cook the edges of the steak for 2-3 minutes to make them crispy.

  4. 04 / Season and serve

    Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.

    Season with coarse salt, ground black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.

    Cut the steak into thick slices and serve on a platter with a lemon garnish.

Wine pairing

A structured red wine such as a Chianti Classico or Brunello di Montalcino pairs perfectly with the rich flavors of meat.

It is not recommended to prepare the steak in advance. However, it is recommended to leave it out of the refrigerator at least 1 hour before cooking.

Do not overcook the meat: Fiorentina steak should be served rare. Avoid turning the meat too many times on the grill.

The steak can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Reheat it in a pan over low heat to maintain its juiciness.

Choose a high-quality cut of meat, at least 3-4 cm thick.
