Steak Pizzaiola is a childhood dish I remember fondly. It was one of my big brothers’ favorite dishes. My mom is the real deal- 100% Italian. Such a beautiful thing…not all too common in the US any longer. While a lot of her Italian culture was not passed on to her through her second-generation parents, FOOD.certainly.was. She is graciously letting me share some of her delicious and treasured Italian dishes on this whole-food blog. I am grateful, and if you try them, you will be too! This recipe is EASY, filling and very Italian!



2 to 3 lbs. cube steak or thin sliced round steak

1 to 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen peas

Marinara or spaghetti sauce (approx 2-3 cups, save some to put over ‘pasta’)




  1. Salt and pepper steaks and brown in pan on medium high heat, 2 to 3 minutes a side.
  2. Place in casserole dish that you have greased with fat of choice and pour sauce over until meat is covered.
  3. Bake covered 1-1/2 hours to 2 hours on 350⁰. (this will get it nice and tender)
  4. Add peas the last 15 minutes or so. (Keep an eye on sauce to make sure it doesn’t get too thick, add water as needed)
  5. Serve with spaghetti squash (GAPS-friendly), or brown rice spaghetti.
