From the menu of “Tuscan Steak” 431 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. Tuscany, where the
food is simple, usually grilled, and consistently delicious, has found its way to South Beach at
Tuscan Steak. Best described as “a sophisticated family-style Florentine Grill featuring Tuscan
cuisine with Florida accents,” there is nothing quite like Tuscan Steak.
3 1/2 lbs prime T-bone steak
1/3 cup minced fresh garlic
1 cup chopped parsley
1 cup chopped basil
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Season the steak with the garlic, parsley, and basil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the steak
with the olive oil and marinate for 24 hours.
When ready to cook, heat the grill and cook the steak for 1 hour over medium heat, turning every
10 minutes. While grilling, preheat the oven to 400’F. When the meat is ready, remove it from
the grill and let stand for 20 minutes. Roast the meat in the oven for 10-30 minutes, depending on
how you like it. One hour on the grill and 10 minutes in the oven yields a medium-rare meat. A
meat thermometer should register 145’F for medium-rare.
Slice the steak and drizzle it with some of the olive oil marinade (now at room temperature).
