Hi calorie counters,
Ever heard of Beef Carpaccio? I don't know if it's famous or available in the States, but beef carpaccio is a dish that has caught on over here in Europe. It's a very thin cut (strip, even) of raw meat that we eat sprinkled with olive oil and shavings of parmesan. I believe it's Italian. Oh and I've no idea how to prepare it!
Anyone have any idea what its nutritional/calorie information might be? I thought it might be a healthy, high in protein option.
In your food log, just enter the grams of beef (probably a steak of some sort), the grams of olive oil, and the grams of Parmesan that you eat and the Log will take care of it. Next time, shave a few bits of truffle on top (LOL)
If you like, try it as a salad with vine ripened summer tomatoes (sliced very thin) and arranged on the bottom of a dish, a little chopped basil (fresh), the olive oil and Parmesan. An excellent salad. Enjoy.
Just add up the calories for raw beef (it will vary depending on the cut used), olive oil and cheese.
That sounds like a beautiful recipe, will most certainly try it!!
Love beef carpaccio, though it is not that widely available. Beef tenderloin is the right cut to use. Here is a link to how to make it
YUMMO is all I got to say!!
I eat beef carpaccio every now and then, but I've never had it with parmesan. Carpaccio refers to the thin slicing of the meat, not the actual dish. Venison carpaccio is also good.
If you're a raw fan then you might also like beef tartare? Traditionally prepared with a raw egg yolk on top.
ETA: I'm not from the States either :)
