Directions See How It's Made
- For the marinade, stir together Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup olive oil, vinegar, Italian seasoning, 2 T minced garlic and 1/4 tsp salt. Marinate the beef for 30 min to 1 hour.
- Remove the beef from the marinade, reserving 1/4 cup of the marinade, and fry the beef cubes in 1 T olive oil. Remove beef from pan and set aside.
- Add 1 T olive oil to pan and stir fry the onion and carrots. After 1 minute, add the mushrooms, bell pepper, garlic and zucchini. When crisp-tender, add the stewed tomatoes, reserved marinade and the beef cubes.
