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.

    Looks great. I did some nice filet steake for new years (a coer de filet provencale). It is as good cold as it is hot! But i don´t think it was as good as this one.

    Usually you cannot decide how cook you want a florentine steak because this recipe follows strict rules about the timing on the fire so the result is always similar to this one in the video. If you don't like raw steak you can order a normal steak but florentine steak is like that no more and no less cooked.
    Next time try it with Chianti, you'll know what heaven looks like.

    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".
