100% Italian meat: a question of pairings

The indispensable element is and remains the accompaniment, since to make the dish a real experience you need to focus a few points on the location and the accompaniment. If Carne Genuina can do little on the location, it has a few more weapons on the accompaniment: craft beer, chosen wine and RUB represent the plus of a top recipe.

Italian beef and vegetables

Vegetables are good for you, everyone says so. From the pediatrician who looks after the little ones at home to the general practitioner who prescribes check-ups once a year. “Do you eat vegetables and fruit? Please remember they are important.” True, or rather no, perhaps very true.

Beef and potatoes

Potatoes are the perfect side dish for various kitchen preparations. Rich in carbohydrates, they are the perfect accompaniment to meat which offers a rather vast variety of proteins. Boiled, fried, baked, any version is perfect to accompany a dish with organic or non-raw or cooked beef. For the warmer seasons the advice is always to avoid fried foods and various heavy foods and prefer boiled potatoes seasoned with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a little parsley which, as we know, goes with everything.

Beef and rocket

Arugula is a type of bitter and particular salad capable of completing the intense flavor of the best Italian meat and, even more so, if it is cooked on the grill or on the grill. After all, you always need a good excuse to make a 100% Italian meat barbecue, right? Arugula is perfect when served seasoned with flavored extra virgin olive oil, perhaps adding a little Calabrian chili pepper which warms just enough without distorting the flavor of the bite. Finally, rocket and parmesan flakes accompany tender raw beef or good sliced ​​bresaola like a groom in a tuxedo.

Beef and pumpkin

A particular combination for most but very popular in chic venues that choose to elevate the intense and sublime flavor of Italian cuts of beef.

If it is true that appreciation begins with the eyes, then it serves to put the perfect side dish on the table: baked pumpkin which, easy to prepare and versatile in use, becomes the perfect cooking companion.

Grilled radicchio

Beef and spinach

Arm wrestling, who? Generations raised on spinach and cartoons remember with palpable nostalgia those moments when a guy named Popeye crushed a can of spinach to gain instant strength.
