Thinly sliced meats are big in many food cultures around the world, and rightly so, they’re fast, easy, wonderfully flexible and a great way to get extra servings from a pound (or .45359237 Kilos) of high-grade American Beef! Read on for recipes and photos using thin sliced Beef Rib Eye and other classic cuts of beef from this cooking class hosted for guests of the USMEF.
The United States Meat Export Federation
(USMEF) has an office here in Denver, and Tony’s has been honored to give their international guests and representatives tours of our market to show off the countries finest beef and meats for over 20 years. Tony Rosacci’s Fine Catering also host their guests private cooking classes on how to use American beef – many of them on local cattle ranches, cooking schools and in my home kitchen. This season we worked with a group of chef’s from Moscow, as well as a Russian travel channel, a group of very popular Korean bloggers and a Japanese media group. Photos and recipes here are from the Japanese group in summer of 2010.
Thin Sliced Beef Rib Eye Feature
The following two recipes feature thinly sliced Rib Eye Steaks, now (as of April 2014) available in our markets, look for them in our freezer case along with two other cuts of beef, three cuts of pork as well as juicy chicken thigh.
Quickly pan seared meats with a variety of sea salts or seasoned salts and accoutrements (the spicy Primo Berry Jam was incredibly popular!)
Other Thinly Sliced Meats Recipes
Mashed potatoes kicked up with a hint of wasabi – great with grilled meats, hearty stews as well as fish, pork and poultry.
