When Mark Bittman made this sauce, he put it on tri tip steak. I did not. To see him make the sauce and cook the steak, have a look at the video here.
Of course, you still have to watch the video if you want to make the sauce to put with something else! I chose to put it with spagetti and diced skinless, spicy, beef sausages:
Again, not a delicious looking picture, but a delicious dinner!
The tomato sauce is mainly tomatoes and almonds - a delicious texture that you should try yourself.
