‘Garlic Butter Spicy Big beef Tomato sauce’
- ½ lb. Big Beef tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic (minced)
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 table spoon butter
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 2 teaspoon chili flakes
- In a nonstick skillet over medium high heat, put the tomatoes with no oil in the pan.
- Cook until the skins of the tomatoes begin to blister on the outside.
- Reduce the heat once the skins have blistered and the tomatoes appear soft to avoid a lot of spatter.
- Add the olive oil, chili flakes and garlic. (Be careful not to brown the garlic.)
- To release the juices from the tomatoes, gently press them open with the back of a wooden spoon.
- Add the balsamic and let the whole mixture reduce until it’s thickened a bit, maybe 5-10 minutes.
- Finish with a knob of butter and season to taste with salt and pepper.
