A platter with thin sliced roast beef, arugula and shaved asiago

My favorite appetizer when I go to a local Italian spot near me is the beef carpaccio. Thin sliced raw beef, arugula and shaved Asiago. Here I used rare roast beef and made a lemon vinaigrette. My husband loved it! You can serve this as an appetizer for four or have it as a lunch for two. For a vegetarian option see Zucchini Carpaccio.

  1. I made this a couple weeks ago and loved it! I also tried it with balsamic and it was really good too. I didn't check to see if the points value went up or not when I used balsamic, but it was tasty.

  2. I know! I always look for it on the menu. It seems some of the more upscale Italian restaurants have it. I love the combination of flavors!!

  3. By far my favorite appetizer. I have found that not all italian restaurants have it on their menu, but when they do I get it. I am definitely going to try this. Thanks.

  4. I bought this at the deli for a quick appetizer, but nothing beats homemade!! I have a recipe for homemade roast beef on my site. So simple to make!!

  5. Oh Gina, this is my favorite appetizer at a local italian restaurant near my home as well! Did you find your roast beef at the deli? Or make it yourself? Thanks for this recipe!
