Steak Pizzaiola

Makes 4 servings

1 ½ pounds (1-inch thick) boneless ribeye steak, at room temperature

Kosher salt

Coarse-ground pepper

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 large onion, thinly sliced

1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced

1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced

3 garlic cloves, smashed

½ cup dry white wine

1 (15-ounce) can crushed tomatoes

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Pinch of red pepper flakes

4 large fresh basil leaves, torn

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Parmesan cheese, for serving

Season the steak generously with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak to the pan and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer the steak to a plate and keep warm. Add the onion and peppers to the skillet and cook until tender, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook one additional minute. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Stir in the tomatoes, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Bring the sauce to a simmer and add the steak and any accumulated juices. Cook the steak, turning once, until medium rare, about 7 minutes.

Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let rest about 5 minutes. Continue simmering the sauce until thickened, about 3 additional minutes. Stir in the basil and parsley.

Thinly slice the steak against the grain and divide among plates. Top with the sauce and serve with parmesan cheese.
