Steak Pizzaiola Recipe

Hello everybody! Today I am sharing with you my steak pizzaiola recipe. Follow along for the written recipe or watch the step by step video at the end of this post.

Ingredients:

  • Strip Steak
  • 10 plum tomatoes, boiled and skin peeled
  • Olive Oil
  • Oregano
  • All purpose flour
  • 2 cloves of garlic for tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic for the steak
  • Salt and pepper to taste

The first step is to coat the steaks with salt and black pepper, and let them marinade in the fridge for 2 hours. Also before we get started with this recipe, I’d recommend boiling water and throwing in the plum tomatoes until you notice the skin starting to peel. Drain the water, let the tomatoes cool, then peel the skin off the tomatoes. Next slice the plum tomatoes in half, and empty some of the juice and seeds, and begin dicing them into smaller pieces.

Now onto the sauce!

Start by thinly chopping 2 cloves of garlic, and putting it into a frying pan with 4oz of olive oil. Set the heat to medium-high, and let the garlic fry until tender; make sure to not burn the garlic. Once the garlic has a golden color, add the chopped plum tomatoes, and lower the heat to medium-low. Add salt, black pepper, and oregano. This is all to taste. I personally added about 2 pinches of salt, half teaspoon of black pepper, and 1 tablespoon of my homemade dried oregano. Mix everything together, and let simmer on medium to low heat for about 6 minutes.

Now in another pan, add 2 whole cloves of garlic, 4oz of olive oil and turn the heat on to medium. Next coat each piece of steak in flour, and then place them into the pan. Cook the steaks on each side for about 4 minutes; it all depends on how you like your steak cooked.

Once the steaks are cooked to your preference, dump the plum tomatoes over the steaks and let simmer on low for about 8 minutes. That’s it!

This recipe can be served with a side of risotto or over spaghetti.
