Recipe Florentine Steak

The chef Omar from Osteria Magona presents a typical Tuscan dish: the Florentine steak.

Recipe Florentine Steak


– at least a kilo and a half of fat meat of a female young cow
– salt, pepper and Bolgheri olive oil
– coals of wood embers


For cooking, the steak must be placed very close to the grill and must cook 5 minutes on one side, 5 minutes on the other side and then left to rest standing.
Very important: do not season the meat. You need to put salt, pepper and olive oil always at the end of cooking after cutting.
It is very important before serving the Florentine steak to heat well the plate on which it is served.
Then cut the Florentine.
After our steak has been cut, we put salt flowers and a delicious Tuscan oil, preferably from Bolgheri.
Enjoy your meal!
