Boiled beef is mostly a winter dish with which to enjoy both broth and meat.

But boiled beef can be an excellent idea even in summer, just let it cool, cut it into small pieces and season it. Using olive oil, vinegar, fresh vegetables and black olives, you will have prepared an excellent boiled beef salad!

Of course, given the tight times that each of us has during the day, we can think of preparing boiled beef in abundance and eating it in the evening as boiled meat and broth and the next day as a salad.

It is obvious that the better the quality of the meat, the higher the quality of your salad. Of course, I recommend our Monti Sicani Real Grass Fed meat but, if you don’t have it, another Grass Fed meat from well-known producers is fine too.
