Garlic Balsamic Grape Tomatoes

I needed some tomatoes, and the market had this buy one, get one free deal going on, so I did.


I really did not need that many tomatoes.

Happily, I came across this recipe on, I think,, and decided to offer it up as a side dish for dinner. Leftovers, as it turned out, made a frozen pizza a true thing of beauty.

•1 pint grape tomatoes
•2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
•3 garlic cloves, minced
•2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
•1/2 tsp steak seasoning
•1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet, then add the tomatoes and garlic.

Cook for 15 minutes, stirring every now and then, until the tomatoes begin to soften.

Add the balsamic vinegar, crushed red pepper, and steak seasoning and continue to cook until the tomatoes begin to burst and any pan liquids have reduced and thickened into a sauce.

Serve as a side, which, as I noted above, was lovely, or scatter on top of a frozen pizza before cooking, which was really good.

I might even go so far as suggest just spreading it on crusty bread.
