Beef Carpaccio?

What is the best cut to use to make beef carpaccio? Also, how do I know if it's good enough quality to eat raw?

I would use tenderloin I bought from a reputable supplier.

tenderloin, sliced paper thin..........and bought from a very reputable butcher.

Squirt a bit of lemon, drizzle with olive oil, and serve with romano shavings...

One of my favorite foods.

I agree with the tenderloin, it can be easier to cut thinly if put in the freezer for a little while.

I go with Vera's recipe but like a couple of capers tossed on the plate.

Tenderloin, all the way. Or Kobe/Wygu(sp?) if you can get/afford it.

We use tenderloin only.

We do roll it in cracked peppercorns and salt and sear it VERY quickly on all sides and then wrap and freeze until it can be sliced paper thin. Heavenly.

I'm just lookin' for my "cheese"!
