Raw Beef

March 4, 2014 - Radio Kitchen - Raw Beef

Our topic this week may be something of a turn-off to some people, and something of interest to others.  Here's the deal:  every now and then, maybe once every two years, I get a hankering for a raw beef sandwich.  It's a taste I inherited directly from my father, so I think it's in my genes.  And Chef Jerry Pellegrino of the Waterfront Kitchen tells me that every time he puts Beef Tartare on the menu, it sells out.
