Steak with Hot Sauce
by Daniel Rogov
Place the tomatoes, zhug, chopped mushrooms and almonds in a small bowl and mix well. Spread this mixture on the steaks, divided evenly. Roll up the steaks and fasten with wooden toothpicks.
Transfer the steaks to a lightly greased baking dish and pour over the beef stock. Place in an oven that has been preheated to 330° Fahrenheit (170° Celsius) until done (about 1 hour), basting occasionally with the pan liquids. Add water or extra stock only if the liquids evaporate. Serve hot.
