 Product Description

Bresaola is salt-cured, air-dried beef, an Italian specialty that has been around since Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa. Unlike prosciutto or pancetta, other cured meat products, it has the unique quality of being extremely lean, with little or no visible fat.

Originating from the Valtellina Valley region of northern Italy, bresaola is most typically made from lean cuts of beef such as the eye of round. All visible fat is trimmed off, and the meat is then massaged with a rub containing coarse salt and various seasonings. The spices and herbs used differ according to the traditions and preferences of the craftsperson, but may include combinations of cinnamon, nutmeg, juniper berries, pepper, bay leaf, cloves, thyme, oregano, and rosemary.

Bresaola is sliced paper thin for serving, and the meat is a deep reddish purple color, with a soft texture and a distinctive musty aroma. It is eaten as an appetizer, and best served very simply.
