Carne Alla Pizzaiola

Carne Alla Pizzaiola


  •     1lb of Thinly Pounded Sirloin
  •     2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
  •     2 Cloves of Garlic, smashed and peeled
  •     1 cup of Halved Cherry Tomatoes
  •     1 cup of Crushed Tomatoes
  •     Heavy Pinch of Italian Oregano, about 1 tsp (crush it between your fingers as you add it)
  •     Salt to taste
  •     Fresh Basil


1) Season both sides of the beef on both sides with some salt, very quickly sear it in a medium skillet for about 15 seconds per side (with the tiniest drizzle of olive oil) , remove to a plate and set aside.

    2) To the same skillet, add the olive oil and garlic, saute until the garlic becomes fragrant, then add the cherry tomatoes, cook a couple minutes then add the crushed tomatoes along with the oregano and a pinch of salt, cover and simmer on medium heat for about 10 minutes.

    3) Add the seared beef to the sauce, simmer just a minute then add the basil and serve!

    NOTE: if you’re using a cheaper cut such as rump or braciole steaks, they will need to simmer for at least an hour or until tender, either way, quick cooking or low simmer, it’s spectacular!
