Steak Pizzaola………

Oh the love of skirtsteak!  I find enjoyment with each recipe …….although I do notice the price has risen; what hasn’t? My Mom put a similar recipe together when we were young;  long ago using my own skills I came up with this. Many of you may find these recipes basic; I hope so ! To those who hadn’t paid attention to their Mom in the kitchen, or are away in school; yes, I will continue posting!

Like many of my recipes; this one also has options.. potato, string beans totally your choice. Pasta is a substitute; I have a new eating plan and the potato is on the “good carb” list, I am enjoying them like never before! Mozzarella is an option also.

Choice of steak as well; although I am pleased using skirt steak, Mom chose other steak cuts which worked well.


2 – 3  Skirt Steaks  cut in 4-5 inch pieces

1/2  lb mozzarella sliced

1  lb of baby golden potatoes

1/2 lb Green Beans

1  can crushed tomatoes

olive oil



salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 425*

Cut skirt steak into sections, season with salt pepper garlic & basil. Lightly coat meat with flour and place on pan in oven to sear. 

Brown steak on both sides approximately 20 minutes in total time. The baby golden potato may be placed in the oven as well to pre-cook on a separate tray. Baby golden potato cook quickly remove when easily pierced and set aside to cool and peel.

After searing steak remove and lower oven temperature to 375*

Add crushed tomato with seasoning; again salt pepper & garlic to taste. Stir tomato with meat drippings, you may want to drizzle a little olive oil over the sauce.  Cover and return to oven baking for an additional 30 minutes.

Remove tray and place sliced mozzarella on meat sections. Add potato and cooked green beans returning to oven until cheese melts.


Leftovers are great !
