Steak Pizzaiola is a seasoned tomato sauce served on top of a steak.  You can make a quick steak, such as a flank or sirloin.  

In this recipe, I decided to make it the way my Grandmother did.  I used a chuck steak/roast and slow-cooked it, allowing all the different flavors to meld together.  Serve it as a sandwich with some mozzarella cheese. You can also serve it with spaghetti.  Either way, you choose to make it, you will be happy you did.
