"We're making a really beautiful steak dinner," says Rach. "We're serving some giant stuffed Sicilian-style tomatoes with these gorgeous sirloin steaks. Mmm mmm!" To go with the meal, she also bakes some store-bought steak fries and tosses them with butter, garlic, rosemary and Parm.

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 4 anchovies
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped, plus 2 cloves, crushed, for fries
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 ½ cups panko or homemade breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons capers, drained
  • ½ cup oil-cured olives, pitted and chopped
  • ½ cup packed flat parsley, chopped
  • 4 large beefsteak or vine tomatoes, tops trimmed and reserved and seeds removed  
  • 1 bag steak fries with skins
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons rosemary, chopped
  • ½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Non-aerosol cooking spray
  • 4 sirloin steaks (10 to 12 ounces each), bring to room temp
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 lemon, halved


Serves: 4


Heat EVOO in medium skillet over medium heat and melt anchovies into oil. Add chopped garlic and red pepper and swirl a minute, then add the breadcrumbs and toast to golden and mix in capers, olives and parsley. Cool stuffing to handle and then fill the tomatoes.    

Preheat oven to 425°F.  

Arrange the fries on a baking sheet. Pop in oven when preheated.  

Roast tomatoes with fries for about 10 to 12 minutes to shrink them around the stuffing a bit. Let stand under foil. Cook fries until crisp, then toss with melted butter, crushed garlic, rosemary and cheese.   

Meanwhile, preheat cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, spray with oil and season meat with salt and pepper.

Cook about 8 minutes, turning occasionally. Place the halved lemon in the pan the last few minutes and char it. Douse meat with lemon juice, rest 5 minutes and serve sliced alongside tomatoes and fries.
