On this occasion, we will learn how to prepare a delicious steak with garlic potatoes, and we will learn a little about the history of this cut of meat.

Quick history of beef steak!

When talking about the history of this delicious dish, we have to talk about the famous August 10 in Florence. Mainly in the Medici era, where it was customary for the lords to celebrate the patron San Lorenzo. Where a large bonfire was used to cook a large amount of meat and distribute it to the people so that the celebration would be a banquet for everyone.

History tells that the origin of the "Bistecca alla fiorentina" derives precisely from this custom. Where the English gentlemen are attributed great importance in the dish, since they participated in said celebrations and provided a type of meat unknown to this country.

It is said that the dish prepared by these foreigners was so delicious that the locals asked again and again for more steaks. Legend has it that all of them shouted “more” during the party.

The Florentine's, trying to imitate them, adopted the term “veal steak”. From there was born the adaptation of the name, which we know in Romance-speaking countries as steak. Tasty and delicious, meat is the symbol of Italian cuisine and especially of Florence, from which it takes its name. The standard mentions that this cut must be red on the outside and smooth on the inside.
