Uses of the word carne (plural carni):

carne a carrargiu: same as carne a carraxiu:

carne di cortile ‘courtyard’ meats, ie. poultry of all sorts (and rabbit)

carne tritata: mince, ground meat (usually meaning beef)

carne crudo: before there was such a thing as Carpaccio, there was Piemontese steak tartar, a speciality of Alba (carne cruda all'albese) The marinated raw beef was generally served in an insalata di carne crudo, with generous portions of grated white truffles or porcini mushrooms.
