Additional Tips

The Chianina is an Italian breed of cattle, formerly principally a draught breed, now raised mainly for beef. It is the largest and one of the oldest cattle breeds in the world. The famous Bistecca alla Fiorentina is produced from its meat. One of the oldest breeds of cattle, the Chianina originates in the area of the Valdichiana, from which it takes its name, and the middle Tiber valley. Chianina cattle have been raised in the Italian regions of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio for at least 2200 years.

I have made Bistecca alla Fiorentina several times Rosella, but truly want to try the real deal in Florence some day! I have it posted on my blog if you ever would like to see how my steak turned out. Thanks for sharing your recipe too! Brava!
