Recipe 18: This dish it’s quite light and very balanced, perfect for every dinner during the week and very quick to do also for guests. It’s typical in the center of Italy and it’s also fresh and simple.
Here the ingredients for 2 people: around 350gr of beef in a very thin cut (better if cut by the butcher or buy very thin steaks with less fat possible) a bag of rocket salad, oil, salt, pepper a bit of vinegar and Parmesan in slices!
Just put some oil in a pan with 2-3 garlic cloves. Leave it cook and get goldish and then take them out! In the meantime cut all the fat from the thin steak and cut it in little rectangular pieces. Place them in the pan with some salt and let it cook.
In a plate prepare a bed of rocket salad and mix it with some oil, balsamic vinagre and salt. When the meat is almost ready, put in the pan some rocket leaves to cook with the meat.
When all is ready place the meat on the rocket bed and add lots of Parmesan in slices! Enjoy!
PS. Mamy e da quanto tu non fai un bel piatto di straccetti? Io li ho trovati tra i nostri appunti e non ho potuto resistere… anche se magari sono meglio d’estate. Ma sono cosi rapidi e genuini, con questi semplici prodotti, che m’e’ venuta fuori una cenetta infrasettimanale con i fiocchi!
