I am Italian. My mother made Steak Pizzaiola. It was delicious. This recipe from the Mr. Food Test Kitchen is similar. It brings back wonderful memories.

This is really interesting. Change out the seasonings and swap regular diced tomatoes for the Italian style, and this becomes one of my Asian favorites, pepper steak. I honestly had never thought of taking the basic ingredients and making an Italian dish out of this by essentially just removing the basic sauce. I normally serve the Asian version over rice, and I wondering if this version would be good served with pasta, like fettuchini.

I added fresh sliced mushrooms, very good.
