Tips when preparing beef biltong Italian carpaccio
Preparing this delicacy takes over a day as you need to allow it to rest in the fridge for 24 – 48 hours. So, make sure you have enough time before embarking on this culinary journey. First, lightly sear the fillet, as this kills off harmful bacteria on the outside, and it adds a pleasantly textured crust. Also, pop the seared meat into the freezer for a few hours after curing as it makes it much easier to slice the meat thinly.
For this decadent starter, make sure you use a very expensive cut of beef, the chateaubriand. Since you will be slicing it really thin, it will go a long way to serve a number of people. Enjoy!
