ingredients

  • 12 ounces whole beef tenderloin
  • Bunch of arugula, torn
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, shavings
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • Juice of 1 lemon
    • recipe tools

      Directions

      Wrap the beef tenderloin in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes. This makes it easier to slice the beef.

      Cut the beef into 1/4-inch slices and place each slice between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. With a beef pounder, flatten out the beef until it is paper thin.

      Remove the beef from the plastic wrap and arrange in one layer on a large plate. Layer a few arugula leaves, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, and cheese shavings over the raw meat.

      Add a generous amount of pomegranate seeds and freshly squeezed lemon juice, just before serving.
