Beef carpaccio

JoanaBR Feb 25, 2008 08:00 PM

Does anyone know where I could buy beef carpaccio?? I would love to serve that in a dinner in my place

    Do you want to buy the meat and slice it yourself? I also like the meats at Citarella, but have not seen the dish already prepared there.

        That's great - I'd never heard of it presliced etc. So Citarella is going to slice it for you?

          the lady said that they have already sliced, i just hope is very thin, cause i found once but was a bit thick and i like very thin. i will try to go there today or tomorrow. To sliced yourself is a work, need to freeze the meet and cut with a special knife, i used to use electric ones.

            Thanks - will you let us know how it is? This is a dish we love, but I've never thought of having at home.

              I purchased it before from Citarella. They sliced it but the slices were WAY too thick for carpaccio. I was not happy that time!

              I think you will have to pound it as davisready suggested, so you can buy the whole piece, freeze it a bit, and slice it yourself.

        The place that springs to mind is Citarella. Their meats and fish are always fresh and excellent.
