Tagliata means sliced steak (tagliare = to cut). In fact the meat is cut diagonally into slices after been cooked.

Tagliata di Manzo is a pan-seared piece of Beef Lombata (Sirloin).

Tagliata di Manzo is often served with fresh-shaved Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese, chopped rosemary, peppery arugula (rocket) and drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

The crusting is simple, with sea salt and black pepper or thyme. The inside is moist and pink.

Best Cuts

For the perfect Tagliata you need a well-marbled, boneless, good quality steak.

In Italy the Sirloin steak is the most commonly used for this dish.

In North America you can use Rib-Eye, Entrecôte, Strip Loin and Rump Steak.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Food and Wine Pairing

Food and wine pairing is highly dependent on both the taste components in the food and the taste components in the wine.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
