Steak Tartare

Probably many people don’t like the idea to eat raw meat, and to be honest, even if I have no problem to eat it, I also prefer other ways to use the meat 🙂 but in my wife’s family it’s tradition to eat it at New Year’s Eve, so once in a year I can…

Spezzatino di Manzo (Beef Stew with Potatoes and Peas)

This is a recipe that at home my mom uses to make quite often, it’s not difficult and it’s also quite cheap since we are not using the “best” cuts of the beef 🙂 It’s a classic recipe through all Italy I think, and it can be a simple but tasty dish for your Sunday…

Beef Steak (cooked in the Pan)

After so much fish, here it is finally a nice and juicy beef steak…in the way I like it, of course 🙂 Before starting to talk about the recipe, which is quite simple (there are just details to take care 🙂 ), I think it’s important to talk about the main ingredient…I’m far to be…
