Where Do I Get Chianina Beef for Bistecca alla Fiorentina?
Dear Kitchn, A few years ago my husband and I traveled to Tuscany, and we have been trying to recreate the food experiences we had there ever since we got back. The one thing we have had a hard time finding are the amazing steaks used for the Bistecca alla Fiorentina. I know it comes from the Chianina breed, but are there any sources for that beef in the U.S.? If not that breed, is there maybe a heritage breed that could work in its place?
