Olive Garden Bistecca di Manzo alla Boscaiola Recipe

  1. Fill a bowl with lukewarm water. Place the dried porcini mushrooms in the water and soak them for 20 minutes. Take the mushrooms out of the bowl, rinse them, then chop them lightly. Set aside.
  2. In a sauté pan, combine the white wine, mushrooms, tomatoes, and oregano. Heat over medium heat, then bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper, adjusting seasoning to personal taste.
  3. Lower the heat and simmer the sauce for 15 minutes. In a second pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Place the steaks in the pan, cooking in batches if necessary.
  4. Cook the steaks for four minutes, then flip to cook the other side for four minutes more. Add the garlic and chopped onion to the pan and cook for another two minutes.
  5. To serve, remove the onions from the pan and place them on a large platter. Lay the steaks on top of the cooked onions, then pour the sauce over the steaks. Garnish with chopped parsley.

  • The Olive Garden estimates the total cooking time for this dish to be 35 minutes, including 20 minutes for preparation. The ingredients listed make enough food to serve four, but cooks can multiply the quantities to serve more guests.[5]
  • If you prefer to roast your own tomatoes, place one pint of grape tomatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle a tbsp of extra virgin olive oil over the tomatoes and sprinkle them with a bit of salt and pepper. Place the baking sheet in a 400 degree oven and roast the tomatoes for about 20 minutes.[2]
  • For a spicier taste, dice a serrano or jalapeno pepper finely and add to the tomato mixture in the skillet.[4]
  • To make a smoother tomato sauce, combine the tomatoes, onion, and a red pepper in a blender and puree until smooth. Add this mixture to the other sauce ingredients in the pan.[3]
