Playing How To Make Tagliata (Sliced Steak) with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes and Herb Sauce | Rachael Ray

Rach shares an easy recipe for slow-roasted tomatoes with herb sauce to serve alongside an otherwise quick-cooking dinner of tagliata (sliced steak) and arugula salad.


For the tomatoes:
  • 4 large heirloom tomatoes, stemmed and tops trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon aged balsamic or aged tomato vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons good-quality extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) 
  • Salt and pepper 
For the sauce:
  • 1 shallot , coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed 
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups parsley leaves
  • ½ cup mint leaves
  • One generous handful of basil leaves, torn
  • Salt and 1 teaspoon red pepper
  • ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)  
For the tagliata:
  • Four 8-ounce sirloin steaks or 8 ounce portions of hanger or flank steak
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • A couple cloves of garlic, crushed 
  • A few sprigs of rosemary , chopped
  • Crushed red pepper, optional
  • A drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) to marinate, plus 2 tablespoons for greens
  • Non-aerosol cooking spray
  • 2 lemons, halved
  • 6 to 7 cups arugula
  • 1 cup shaved/curls of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese 
  • Flaky salt or flaky smoked salt


Serves: 4


For the tomatoes, preheat oven to 300˚F. 

 Arrange the tomatoes on parchment-lined tray and dress with vinegar, oil and salt and pepper and roast 90 minutes.  

For the sauce, combine ingredients in food processor, process, transfer to small bowl. When tomatoes are at room temperature, slather with herb sauce and serve with sliced steak. 

For the tagliata, pat steaks dry and take the chill off by bringing to room temperature. Season with kosher salt and pepper, rub with garlic and combine with the rosemary, crushed red pepper (if using), and EVOO, and let stand 30 minutes. Remove garlic before cooking and heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add a spray of oil and the steaks and 2 of the halves of lemons. Cook steaks 6 minutes for pink centers, flipping halfway through, let rest 3 minutes. Remove the charred lemon.
