What’s better than a good steak?
Well, this is bistecca di cavallo (horse steak). In the US is illegal. Italians would be very surprise to hear that, for us horse meat is perfectly fine, many doctors recommend that to anaemic patients.

They say when you are in Rome do what the Romans do… well you don’t have to, but don’t have an heart attack if you see a “carne di cavallo” sign
