Week 52 – December 24, 2014 – December 30, 2014
Made on December 26, 2014

Well, here we are. The last week of the year. One more recipe to make. This week I wanted to make something simple. I decided to try this recipe from Food & Wine. I wasn’t sure what to think about the Pizzaiola. I’ve never had it before. I wasn’t sure how well a tomato sauce was going to go with a steak, but I wanted to try it anyway.

I love how simple this recipe is. It reminds me of the recipes we made on the cooking tour in Italy; the “fanciest” ingredient was oregano. I have never peeled a tomato before. It was a little time consuming to peel and then chop 1.5 lbs of tomatoes, but that was the most complicated part of this recipe. Cooking the tomatoes with salt, pepper, garlic, and olive oil made it taste amazing. It’s so simple, but it tastes so good.

Cooking the steak on the stove took a little time. The steak I had gotten was thicker than one inch so I had to spend more than the 10 minutes the recipe recommends to cook them. I think this recipe would be good with lots of different kinds of steaks though. Next time, I’ll probably look for a thinner steak so I can cook it faster. But in general, I would definitely make this recipe again.
