Beef squares of Vesuvian tomatoes Beef squares of Vesuvian tomatoes

Squares of beef with tomatoes. It is soft and thin slices cut into square pieces and regular. This is to avoid bringing to the table the same old slice. Cook them on the fly on a bed of ripe tomatoes flavored with garlic and parsley. I used the Vesuvian tomatoes because I love them, but are also fine as long as other types of tomato ripe and firm.
