I put this here because the first Carpaccio and Tartar we ever tried were beef. Now we have tried tuna. Have you tried any of these basically raw preparations. I was turned off initially to raw beef by my oldest brother and father's habit of eating raw hamburger (from the grocery) sandwiches. Just white sandwich bread, ground/minced beef, a thick slice of onion, S&P. We found one of the best local Italian restaurants from a simple search for Carpaccio. Too bad they closed.
