Carne alla Pizzaiola

Proverbio Italiano of the day:

"Meglio da solo... che male accompagnato."

Meaning: Better alone, than with bad company. Ain't that the truth?

We've been making this recipe at home for as long as I can remember. It's simple, quick, and delicious.

It only requires a few ingredients, and you can easily serve it with a simple tossed salad. It would also be the perfect secondo, second plate after the main dish. Buon Appetito!


serves 2-4

2 tbsp. olive oil
tomatoes (from jar, or freshly chopped)
a few cloves chopped garlic
2-4 thin sirloin steaks
salt to taste
dried or fresh oregano
fresh mozzarella sliced (optional)

let's make it

1. Over low heat, sauté some chopped up garlic cloves in olive oil. 

2. Take tomatoes from the jar or freshly chopped, and mash them so the juice comes out. 

3. Add the tomatoes, salt and oregano to the hot sauteed garlic and oil in the pan. 

4. Take thin sirloin meat slices (the thinner the better), and lightly rinse them under water. Take a paper towel to dry them and then place them in pan, one by one. 

5. Place lid over pan, and have the sirloin steaks cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side. They cook very quickly because the are thin. 

6. When steaks are done cooked, add fresh sliced mozzarella over each piece and place lid back on top for about 1 minute.

7. Be sure to eat the Pizzaiola hot. Can be served with a fresh side salad.
