Do you want to try a dish that never disappoints, a typical dish of Tenno and one renowned throughout Trentino?
Carne Salada, a typical dish par excellence made by Chef Ettore according to tradition: the first step involves selecting cuts of Trentino beef, which are then wet-cured in brine for at least 18 days to give the meat its unique tenderness, with the additional flavours of laurel, pepper and other local spices. “Carne Salada” can be eaten raw, very thinly sliced and served with mushrooms preserved in oil, or it can be grilled and served with traditional stewed “salugia” beans. In winter, you can also try it prepared according to the oldest recipe: Carne Salada “Boìda” (boiled beef).
You will love it in every way!
