Italians have been making it for centuries and they are using something in particular: Veal!
And veal is a byproduct of milk cows.

  • 1 rack veal ribs
  • 6 slices prosciutto or other Italian style ham
  • 6 leaves sage
  • 100 grams flower
  • 50 grams butter
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • First trim off the silver skin and cut off the edges and make it look really good.
  • Cut it up into tomahawk style steaks.
  • Hit each tomahawk with a pan until it's completely flat.
  • Season each tomahawk with some salt and pepper.
  • Fire up your BBQ and smoke the tomahawks at 120°C/250°F until they reach a core temperature of 52°C/125°F.
  • Take the tomahawks out of the BBQ and let them rest.
  • Place some prosciutto and a sage leaf on each tomahawk and pin it with a toothpick.
  • Add the flower in a tray and coat the tomahawks with the flower.
  • Grab a pan and add the butter into it.
  • Heat it up and wait until the butter is melted, then add the olive oil.
  • Fry the tomahawks for a short while on each side.
  • And that's how you make a classic Saltimbocca.
