Skirt Steak with Green Olive Tapenade

Skirt Steak with Green Olive Tapenade Recipe
Oxmoor House
This topping capitalizes on bold-tasting olives and capers to deliver a huge amount of flavor. To make this meal even quicker, use a store-bought tapenade instead of making your own. If you can't find skirt steak, you can use flank steak. Serve with an arugula and tomato salad.


6 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak and 2 tablespoons green olive tapenade)
