It's important that the meat is cooked à point (medium), so that it doesn't turn out too dry. Use a metal needle to check: when you prick the meat, a clear transparent (not rose-coloured) liquid should come out. That means the meat is ready!
This dish goes really well with steamed potatoes and a colourful leafy salad.
The best wine for this recipe is Barbera d’Asti DOCG, Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC or Refosco, well structured and balanced. Serving temperature: 18-20 °C.
