com Raw Beef Dish (Carpaccio)
1 pound organic beef or bison steak (rib-eye, top sirloin, or top round) 1/4 cup organic cold-pressed olive oil 1 large clove of garlic, minced 1/8 cup of shredded basil 1. Pour olive oil into jar or bowl with garlic and basil. 2. Trim fat off of steak, save for later. Cut beef against the grain* into thin slices. 3. Place beef in olive oil and marinate for at least 30 minutes. Or use as dipping sauce and eat right away. Teriyaki Version Add .5 inch of ginger cut into thin slices and 1/8 cup of nama shoyu (raw soy sauce) *Cutting against the grain means that you cut perpendicular to the lines in the meat. This makes even the toughest of meat a pleasure to chew.
Cutting against grain. Easy to chew. This is how you want to do it. Cutting with the grain. Hard to chew. DO NOT DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!
