A classic Tuscan preparation, Florentine steak is a gargantuan bone-in cut of beef that is seasoned simply and grilled just until medium-rare to showcase the meat's superior flavor. Rapini with Garlic and Red Pepper is a delicious accompaniment to this hearty steak.
- 20-oz. bone-in rib-eye steak
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
In a hot cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat, grill the steak, turning once, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until done to your liking. Transfer the steak to a carving board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
Cut the meat off the bone and slice the meat into strips. Reassemble the strips against the bone and serve immediately. Serves 2.
