Another Recipe...

This is another staple I grew up on...my family loves it and it's easy!

Steak Pizziola
1 1/2- 2 lbs chuck steak
3-4 TBS olive oil (NEVER EXTRA VIRGIN)
4-5 cloves garlic, sliced
1 32 oz can crushed or plum tomatoes (unseasoned please!)
if you use plum tomatoes, break them up as they cook with the back of spoon.
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste (don't be shy with the s/p!)

In a large, deep skillet, over med-high heat sear meat in oil on both sides. Remove to platter. Reduce heat, add garlic and cook until tender. Add tomatoes and other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Return meat to pan, cover and simmer on low for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve with spaghetti.

** To add a little "heat", add some red pepper flakes when cooking garlic.
* Bone in chicken can be substituted for the steak.
