This is extremely scrumptious! My boyfriend gives it two thumbs up! (and he's a picky eater!) Even though it calls for flat iron (top blade) steak I used chuck steak because my local grocery store -surprise!- didn't have flat iron steak. It still turned out fantastically! Another great one from Rachel Ray.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season the steaks liberally with salt and pepper. Pre-heat a large cast iron skillet or griddle over high heat. Drizzle the steaks with EVOO and cook, turning once, for 8-10 minutes for pink centers. Let the meat rest until cool enough to handle, then slice very thinly on a diagonal.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, reserving a cup of the starchy pasta cooking water.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons EVOO, two turns of the pan, over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, carrot and garlic; season with the rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are softened, 5-6 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste for 1 minute to wake up the aroma and flavor. Stir in the beef stock, wine and Worcestershire sauce; lower the heat and simmer until it thickens slightly.
  4. Drop the sliced meat into the gravy, then add the pasta with a splash of the reserved pasta cooking water to combine. Serve in shallow bowls and top with a drizzle of EVOO, the cheese and parsley.
