Bistecca alla Pizzaiola

Steak prepared in the pizza style. This was a clean the refrigerator out, because we have to many leftovers and it is time to start baking for Christmas, dinner. It was pretty good but I had to much sauce and the pieces of steak disappear in the photos.

Bistecca alla Pizzaiola

For Steak:
1 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz steak, I used London Broil, cut into very thin pieces (cut while still a little frozen to get the thinnest pieces)

For Sauce:
2 tsp olive oil
2 tbs onion, diced
1/2 pepper, diced (I had mini peppers so I used 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 orange)
4 oz mushrooms, sliced thin
1 14oz can of crushed tomatoes

Heat pan over medium high heat. Add the olive oil when pan is hot, then add garlic to pan. After about 30 seconds add the steak slices. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove steak and set aside, throw away garlic.

Add additional olive oil to pan. when oil gets hot add onions and cook for a minute or 2. Then peppers and mushrooms cook until mushrooms start to brown. Add the tomatoes and turn heat down to medium. Put the steak slices back in pan. Cook until steak is warmed through.

I served this over a bed of polenta.
