This Carne Ammuddicata Recipe is an Italian Breaded Steak and has been with my family for years! My parents are both from Italy and this is GREAT meat to put with any meal!
Carne ammuddicata is a traditional dish from the Italian region of Calabria. The name means “smothered meat” in English. The dish is typically made with pork or beef.
This dish is a long-cooking process usually used for tougher cuts of meat that would become tender and flavorful, so it could be a great way to make cheaper cuts of meat and an interesting and savory meal.
It goes great with some Italian Red Sauce and even some fresh greens! Added it to an Italian Steak Sandwich with this homemade Italian Bread Recipe and enjoy the yumminess you won’t want to miss out! The crispy breading is yummy!
The steak is just the right layer of thinness that you will want! These NEVER last long in our house! At our house, we call them by their Sicilian name Carne Ammuddicata! This means “breaded meat”!
