Thin slices of an air-dried beef fillet, drizzled with oil, lemon juice, and grated Parmesan.

Originating in the alpine valley of Valtellina, not far from Milan, «bresaola» is a beef fillet which is first cured in salt and spices, and then hung to dry for at least 1 months. The microclimate of the Alps offers ideal conditions for its ageing process. A close (but dryer) relative is the Swiss «Viande des Grisons» or « Bündnerfleisch».

Ingredients

100 g bresaola (dried meat) 20 slices
4 tsp extra virgin olive oil 20 mL
2 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 9 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

At the store, have the bresaola sliced very thin (paper-thin), so its taste will then be at its best.

Method

Arrange bresaola slices slightly overlapping on a large platter. Drizzle with the oil and lemon juice. Add pepper to taste (not salt, since this meat is already rather salty). Let stand for a few minutes.

Grate some Parmesan cheese on top and serve immediately.
