This is one of the most loved Italian cured meat, not yet fully discovered in the world! Let's keep the secret between us and find out why this small good is so delicious!
Bresaola (pronounced breh-zow-lah) is an Italian cured meat that is sliced thin and served chilled or at room temperature. Bresaola has an IGP trademark (protected geographical indication) limiting its production only to certified master butchers in the Lombardy region.
Compared with many other types of cured meat, bresaola is very lean, as it is made from a single muscle and any outer fat is removed before curing. Bresaola is a bit like lean prosciutto made with beef instead of pork and slightly reminiscent of pastrami in terms of flavor.
One of the most common ways to eat it is with rocket, shaved Grana Padano and seasoned with a bit of extra virgin olive oil and lemon or balsamic vinegar. In summer this becomes a main dish, fresh, easy and low in calories. It is also used commonly on top of pizzas, and in antipasto boards along with pickles and bread.
