‘Steak Florentine’ is a dish native to Tuscany in Italy. A simple way to describe it is that it’s an almost unadorned steak, grilled to perfection at very high heat and then seasoned with only a little salt, pepper and garlic, then drizzled with olive oil.
This is not a pure version of Florentine Steak – it’s only inspired by the art that Tuscans have mastered. This version is easy enough for anyone to pull off and it tastes great! I love that the meat’s flavour is clear and unaltered by marinade and powerful spices!
If you want a great wine with your steak, try Rib Shack by Douglas Green. It is not expensive, and it was made specifically to enjoy at a braai with red meat. It’s a Shiraz/Pinotage blend, but the longer it breathes the sweeter it becomes. Try it!
