Pizzioli an Italian Style of Preperation for steak with peas, hence Steak a Pizzioli. Usually a lesser cut of beef, chuck often, is used. It is on the bone, but pounded a bit, then rubbed with garlic and olive oil sprinkled with oregano, basil and parsley and sliced onions. A simple preperation of crushed tomato and or paste and water is sparingly poured over it and under it and it is braised about 15-20 minutes , then peas are added and cooked in the liquid around the steak. Some people add small pieces of potato at the begining, others make a mash, the sauce is poured over the steak on slicing, taking care to add the meat juices in the sauce. depending on the volume of sauce made you may elect to pour some over the mashed potatoes. I make a reasonable amount of sauce and lots of peas, and the item is quite wonderful over mashed potato or rice or mixed in with orzo pasta. It must have oregano in it, it will not taste like Sunday Sauce. The leftover sauce with peas are nice with almonds or walnuts mixed in over rice as a side dish.
You may add a dash of red wine with red wine vinegar or just balsamic vinegar to it, or even lemon juice. These are all varients in my own home.

in his sexy voice, something that young love brgnis a young man to say to a young woman that is about to be his wife, about to be her husband and their reactions. Quinton would log those shots. I see the leaning on each other when times are hard and knowing you have someone in your corner to lean on and love on and count on, when the world has been tough on you. I see the victory kiss after the game and taking a monent just to stop and revelle(sp) in the beauty of the person that means the most to me. I am totally impressed by you and your Beau. May you guys, be blessed, have angels watch over you and may GOD's love forever be in you life and marrage forever. Love Uncle PrettyBoyp.S. Is Jeff Popping his collar, lol.October 5, 2010 2:38 am
