K-L, I looked up Chef John's recipe for pizziaola, and it's spot on with both hot and sweet peppers, and the balsamic vinegar.

Also, that it can be cooked relatively quickly with a more tender cut of beef (my fave) or low and slow with something like a chuck roast.

Family wanted lamb so I made lamb loin chops braised (with lemon, garlic and chicken broth), fresh green bean salad and shells in creamy garlic sauce.

Being a forward thinking person, I got a jump on the day and did take-out pizza for dinner tonight. Meatlover's pizza with a beer. Delicious.

Your pictures look delicious Kgirl. It's new to me, and can't wait for great tomatoes to make it.

That looks delicious, K-girl.

Unfortunately, the Italian joint closed early (I can't figure out how a place stays in business that's only open a few days a week, and closes by 8:30 on a Friday).

I ended up with pork chops Marsala from the diner. Better said it was 2 pork cutlets swimming in brown gravy with a few canned mushrooms. Side o' overcooked pasta. Salad and bread.

Kay, I make mine with Marinara from canned tomatoes and it tastes just fine.
And I use more tender meat such as NY Strip.

Pulled pork must be a "thing" around DC right now. I just picked up brioche rolls from Aldi today to use with freezer pulled pork in the next few days.

Today, however, we shopped Aldi and Lowe's. Dinner was a quick pot of cheesy cauliflower soup.
