2 tbs. olive oil
2 medium zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, sliced
1 large onion, cut into thick wedges
3 – 5 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed*
1 lb. beef sirloin
salt and pepper
1/2 c. dry red wine
3 – 4 medium tomatoes, chopped
2 tsp. oregano*
2 tsp. basil*

1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tbs. of the oil.  Cook the zucchini, onion, garlic, and rosemary in the hot oil over medium heat for 6 – 7 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.  Remove from skillet, and set aside.

2. Cut steak into 4 serving-size portions.  Add remaining oil to skillet.  Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper and add steak to hot skillet. Cook over medium-high heat for 6 – 8 minutes or to desired doneness, turning once.  Transer to a serving platter, reserving drippings in skillet.  Keep steaks warm

3. Add the wine to skillet, scraping up any browned bits on bottom.  Stir in tomatoes, oregano and basil.  Bring to a boil.  Boil gently, uncovered about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Return cooked vegetables to skillet.  Cook and stir until heated through.  Spoon over steaks.
