Steak Pizzaiola, Rao’s

One of Rao’s signature items that has been on its menu since the early East Harlem, N.Y., days, a 16-ounce shell steak is pan-seared to your desired temperature, which ideally is medium-rare to medium. A reduced, hearty tomato sauce with red and yellow bell peppers and onions is mounted on top of the steak. This homey, comforting dish will be great for the coming cooler evenings.
