Steak Pizzaiola

Some recipes look simpler than they taste. ‘Nuff said.

Although, watch out for the giant garlic chunks (I didn’t).


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 20 oz. sirloin steak
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers (1 red, 1 yellow) julienned
  • 6 jarred pepperoncini, sliced thin
  • 15 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¾ cup water

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Season steak liberally with salt. Sear steak in pan, 2 minutes per side. Once seared, set aside.

Add garlic to the pan. Once sizzling, add peppers and onion and cook until slightly softened, 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, pepperoncini, oregano, pepper flakes, and water. Bring to a rapid simmer. Nestle steak in pan. Cook steak in mixture, 3 minutes per side. Remove steak and place on cutting board to rest. Simmer mixture until thickened.

Slice steak and split among 4 plates. Top each with equal measures of skillet mixture. Serve with a piece of focaccia bread.

Makes 4 servings. Enjoy!
