– Steak – Salt – Pepper – Olive oil – Garlic – Onion – Bell peppers – Tomato sauce – Italian seasoning – Red pepper flakes – Water – Fresh parsley – Shredded cheese
Tenderize steak by pounding it out until thin with a meat mallet, then generously season with salt and pepper on both sides.
Place a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Once hot, add the steak and sear 3 minutes on each side until browned. Set aside on a plate.
Add more oil to the pan along with minced garlic, onion, and bell peppers. Cook until they begin to soften.
Add tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and water, and stir.
Bring to a simmer. Add steaks back to the skillet and simmer for 15 minutes on each side.
Move steaks to a cutting board after simmering. Let them rest 5 minutes while your sauce continues to simmer and thicken.
Thinly slice the steak against the grain after resting. Top with pizzaiola sauce, parsley, and cheese if using. Serve and enjoy!
