Check out how THE COOKING COP AND BABE made it. Amazing video!!
According to the history books hangry British aristocrats visited the De' Medici family who ruled Florentine and demanded to be served huge chunks of beef. Local butchers got right to work and cut these BIG and THICK Porterhouse steaks to be cooked in fires around the Church of San Lorenzo. Right then and there the Florentine Steak aka "BISTECCA ALLA FIORENTINA" was born!

ABOUT OUR DRY AGED STEAKS
Dry aging takes time, a keen eye for quality and a precise technique for the perfect ripening climate. We have it. A proper dry-aged steak is expensive and usually found at only the best steakhouses. These steaks are FUNKY and will be SMELLY. As steaks are dry aged they lose moisture as evaporation occurs and natural enzymes change the steak. This produces a strong umami flavor and the breakdown of carbohydrates produces a sweetish taste. A lot of purveyors are selling 30 day dry aged steaks where the funk is noticeable... these steaks are VERY dry aged. The funk will be strong.
This steak has been dry aged for at-least 45 days, but usually for 55-65 days.
