Beef – it’s what’s for dinner!!!

Likely to be a secondo on the Neapolitan table, this one pan meal, Bistecchina alla Napoletana is more than enough for a satisfying main.

Start with Carne di Manzo, a few slices of boneless beef. Cook them on a bed of mushrooms, onions and prosciutto crudo (Parma dry cured ham). Drizzle on some lemon and white wine.

Serve with some nice crunchy bread and you have a satisfying one pan meal that cooks up in 30 minutes or less.


For two servings:
2 pieces boneless beefsteak
1 Onion
100 grams Prociutto Crudo
Mushrooms – fresh or canned, about 500 grams
Butter or margarine – about 2 tbs
White Wine
Salt and Pepper


Clean the mushrooms (if you are using fresh)
Chop the mushrooms, onions and proscuitto
Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat
Add onions, prosciutto, mushrooms, parsley, salt, and pepper and saute until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms (fresh) are cooked.

Add wine and mix through
Add the steaks and a bit more wine

Brown each side of the steak and squeeze on lemon

Reduce heat to medium and cook uncovered about 10 minutes until the steaks are cooked through
Remove steaks to serving dish and top with the mushroom and prosciutto mixture and garnish with fresh parsley

Buon Appetito!
