Video: Steak Pizzaiola
See how to make the ultimate summer steak and tomato-sauce dish.
In this video, you’ll see how to make classic steak pizzaiola. Chef John uses beef tenderloin medallions for this dish and fresh, sweet, vine-ripened tomatoes. You can use pretty much any cut of steak, but fresh ripe tomatoes are the real key here. The steaks get a quick high-heat searing, then it’s all about the sauce. Mushrooms sauté with sweet peppers and garlic before bathing in a splash of white wine. Then it's time for those delicious diced fresh tomatoes. (See Chef John demo how to prepare the diced tomatoes.) A little balsamic vinegar helps balance the sweetness and acidity and deepens the sauce's color. Warm the steaks in the tomato sauce, and you’re ready for the ultimate summer steak dish. Chef John takes it to new heights by serving it on toast and a slice of mozzarella.
