Florentine-style steak


Preparation time
20 minutes

Cooking time
5 minutes

2 people

The real Florentine-style T-bone steak is taken from a loin of Chianina race beef: it has a T-bone in the middle, tenderloin on one side and sirloin on the other side and it is at least 4 cm thick. It must be kept hanging for a few days in a cool place, but it must be at room temperature when cooked.


  • 1 T-bone steak of at least 800 grs with tenderloin and sirloin
  • pepper
  • salt
  • olive oil


  1. Preheat the grill, then place the unseasoned meat on it: the steak must be turned round only once and must be cooked 4-6 minutes on each side (according to its thickness).
  2. Salt and pepper must be added only on the cooked side. The secret resides in a fast cooking, so meat is well browned outside, soft and succulent inside.
  3. You can then add a drizzle of olive oil at the end.
