Fran's Steak Pizzaiola (Fran being Mom) - Dottie Cooper

Fran's Steak Pizzaiola (Fran being Mom)

  • 2 packs of Chuck steak cut into bit size portions
  • I large onion
  • Oregano
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Tomato Sauce (if you have some of your homemade left it's best.....if not you can use whatever your favorite is)

(Notice there are no real measurements here other than the steak!)

Heat olive oil in a dutch and quickly sear the meat in batches.

Remove all put one layer.
Start your layer on the bottom with meat. 
Slice onions over the meat.
Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese and Oregano, add a few spoon fulls of sauce. 
Repeat the process till you use up all the meat. 
Depending on your pot size you might have two or three layers. 
Add water to the pot. 
Don't cover it like you would soup.Just about 3/4 of the way up.
Simmer on low to medium heat. The longer you simmer the better it is. 

This dish is actually best the next day when the flavors all meld together. Have some good crusty Italian break on hand for sopping up the sauce.

ALTERNATE: If desired, you can add thin potato slices to the layer process.


  1. Hello! This is odd, but I couldn't figure out another way to contact you. My virus protection has a fit on Thrift Store Dolls. Something about an active threat from a file called pimpmybarbie? Don't know much about technology. Didn't know if you need to know this, or not.

  2. Pimp My Barbie is another doll site. Now if there was a virus on my site, my computer would have picked it up. Wondering if I delete her site from my links would that help. Let me know. Thanks!
