Serve this tender, fall-off-the-bone meat with bread, polenta, or sauteed Swiss chard. You can also present it as a "sauce" by shredding the meat, mixing it with the leftover tomatoes from the pan, and tossing with pasta. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    Not at all a traditional recipe. In fact, it defies the concept of pizzaiola. But nonetheless, I love me a tender steak recipe. I'm trying this tonight with some add-ins from other recipes. I think this will be good for my family as my mother and girlfriend both prefer steak well-done as opposed to medium-rare as a traditional recipe would call for. Will post results and everyone's reactions.

    This was fantastic, I added white wine like another reviewer and I think it really pulled this rec pie together. Very tender, delicious meat sauce/recipe.

    Saw this recipe prepared this week and decided to try it. I cooked it in my cast iron pot on the stove top and added a 1/2 cup of white wine for 2 hrs. Yum, Yum, Yum, Based upon other reviews, you can skim any excess oil prior to serving. Yummy!

    Sorry about the double post, but I forgot to mention that I removed MOST of the outer fat from my meat. Not doing so would have ensured that mine was "greasy" too. Hope that helps!

    I have cooked this twice. The 1st time the meat was "fall off the bone" tender. The second time I had to increase the cooking time to achieve that same tenderness. It was super yummy both times!

    I finally tried this recipe today. I have to agree with Wiscill. Steak braised for two hours, not all that tender and very greasy, sauce was not thick. If I do it again, I think I may braise the fat out of the meat in plain water, then braise for longer than two hours with sauce in oven.

    I followed the directions precisely, but the sauce did not thicken. The liquid also had a lot of fat in it. The meat was tender but not "fall of the bone" tender. However, the dish was quite tasty, and we enjoyed it despite the results being different than the picture or the TV segment. Any suggestions?
