Beef carpaccio

I’ve always wanted to make my own beef carpaccio, but at the same time I didn’t know if I’d be completely comfortable eating raw beef. I’ve eaten a lot of questionable food in my time, so I decided it’s time to man up and do this. I thought of getting beef tenderloin, but after talking to the butcher he said I should go with sirloin. I’d get bigger pieces, etc. So I listened to this guy. Which I shouldn’t have. Beef tenderloin would’ve been easier to slice. I threw the sirloin into the freezer for 2 hrs where it got a little firm and then tried to slice tiny pieces of beef, which didn’t go very well. Overall, I did end up getting about 5-6 good pieces that I drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper and lime juice. Garnished with some arugula (I love arugula) and capers.
It was actually really good.

    1. That looks really good.
    2. You ate raw beef at Sea Bar.
    3. I could eat capers right out of the jar. That’s gross.
