How to Slice our Bresaola:
If you purchased our pre-sliced Bresaola, carefully peel around the edges and work your way to the center until it is fully separated. It may be difficult to separate each layer of Bresaola, but trust us, it is worth it.
Pro-tip: take a paper towel, spray it with white wine, wrap the Bresaola in the paper towel, and then rewrap the Bresaola in plastic wrap or a vacuum pouch. This will help to keep the Bresaola fresh.
