  • 2 lbs London broil or beef tenderloin
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet onion (coarsely diced)
  • 2-4 red and green peppers (sliced)
  • 4-5 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped oregano
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped basil
  • salt and pepper
  • grated Pecorino-Romano cheese (to taste)
  • 1 box pasta


  1. Cut the London broil into six or eight smaller pieces, about a half inch thick. Season each piece on both sides with some salt and pepper. In a hot cast iron skillet (about 350 degrees), sear the beef on all sides for about 1 minute per side.

  2. Add the olive oil to the slow cooker, then the beef and the garlic. Let it sit for five minutes, then flip the beef over. Let it sit for five more minutes.
  3. Add the onions, peppers, tomato sauce, red wine, oregano, and water.
  4. Top with salt and pepper.
  5. Cook on high for three hours or low for 5 hours. Add the teaspoon of basil and mix. Continue cooking for one more hour.

  6. Remove from heat and serve a ladle-full or two over a bed of al dente spaghetti, with the Pecorino-Romano cheese.
