Fuss free Steak with Olives

steak with olives

It took me about 15 minutes to make. The carrots took a little longer, but if you’re in a rush you can stick with a leafy side like a simple salad or the fresh fennel and orange salad would be yum.

You’ll need:
1 lb top sirloin boneless 1″ thick
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of chopped garlic
1/4 cup of black olives in brine (I used kalamata olives) coarsely cut
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste
Fresh slices of lemon

Heat up a cast iron skillet (not non-stick), make sure it’s hot. Pat the steak dry and season with salt and pepper. Cook on one side for about 4 minutes (lower the heat if you notice it burning). Don’t turn or move until the time is up. Turn and cook the other side for another 4 minutes. Remove from heat and place meat on a cutting board.

Add 2 tbs of olive oil to the pan and cook garlic and pepper flakes for 2 minutes until golden then add olives. Cook for a minute or so then remove from heat and add parsley.

Cut the meat into thin slices (cut on the bias – opposite of grain). Top with olive mixture and serve with fresh lemon slices.
