Neapolitan bistecca alla pizzaioli (Steak with Spicy Tomato Sauce) was originally used to disguise the poor quality of meat in this region of Italy. Today we can enjoy excellent meats with this sauce for a quick and delicious meal.
Wine suggestion: Folks in Napoli might drink a big, smooth, red Lacryma del Vesuvio Rosso by the local Mastroberardino winery; or go with chianti.
This meal contains 534 calories per serving with 38 percent of calories from fat.
• Use any type of steak such as flank, rib eye, skirt or strip.
• Substitute celery for fennel.
