Eating ENTIRE Huge FLORENTINE STEAK in Florence Italy

  • Published on Sep 16, 2018
  • My first time in Florence Italy and as soon as I got off the train from Venice, I had to find a restaurant that serves the traditional Florentine steak. This cut of steak is leaner than most other steaks I've had, especially the A5 wagyu in Japan.
    I got the T bone which gave me two different cuts of steak meat and the tenderloin part was just mind blowingly delicious. The steak had a huge beef flavor and the tenderloin part of the steak was just the most tender steak ever.

    Excellent beef must never be cooked into leather. They served it just right, to me. A little char on top, salt and pepper, and then tender juicy deliciousness! If you cook it well done, why not just eat your shoes?

    In my opinion and experience with steak from many countries, a great steak doesn’t require more than sea salt and fresh cracked pepper as seasoning.

    The fiorentina can look like a bit overwelming for one person. But one bite just follow another. Even i was surprised when i found myself against that massive piece of meat, but once i started eating i just couldn't stop myself. There is a reason why in Italy is often referred as "the queen of the grill".

    2Kg = 4.4lbs = 70.4 oz. How long did it take to eat? How long did you have to sleep? I am not going to ask about digestion etc....This amount of meat is comparable to some food challenges at the Big Texas restaurant.
