Steak Pizziola is a traditional Italian meal. The meat is tender and juicy and the sauce is delicious.
2-3 Lbs Chuck steak, Sirloin Steak
or any steak of your choice
1 (28-ounce) can Italian tomatoes
– crushed (Preferably San Marzano)
2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Garlic Cloves – finely minced
¼ tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 350º. Season steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. In a cast iron skillet (or one that can go into the oven), sear the steaks on both sides. Set aside. In the skillet, add the tomatoes, garlic, red pepper flakes and oregano. Stir scraping all the bits left over from the steak. Put the steak back into the skillet and place in the oven for 1 – 1½ hours, or until the steaks are tender. Spoon the sauce over the steak to serve. The sauce can also be used over pasta or rice.
