One of the simplest, yet most succulent dishes of Florence is the renowned bistecca alla fiorentina. Thick T-bone steaks of the highest quality and a very hot grill are the keys to success. Italians cook the steak rare and often douse it with a healthy squeeze of lemon. The combination of rich, red meat and tart juice is nothing short of exceptional. Do try it.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
2 T-bone steaks, 1 1/2 inches thick (about 4 pounds in all)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
Lemon wedges, for serving

DIRECTIONS
Light the grill. Rub the steaks with the oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper.


Grill the steaks over high heat for 6 minutes. Turn and cook until done to your taste, about 6 minutes longer for rare. Serve with lemon wedges.


STEAK CHOICE:
If you like, use porterhouse steaks instead of T-bones. Both of these bone-in steaks come from the short loin section of the animal. The bone seperates the steak into strip loin and tenderloin sections. The strip loin has more flavor and the tenderloin is tenderer. Porterhouse steaks have more tenderloin and T-bones have a larger strip loin section. Choose according to your preference.
