  • 6 tomatoes
  • 1 flank steak
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 5 basil leaves
  • 6 oregano sprigs
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup Sicilian olives
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp fresh cracked Black pepper


  • Season the steak with salt and pepper.
  • Start by blanching tomatoes or using canned crushed tomatoes.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the steak to the skillet and sear until browned. This will take about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the steak to a plate.
  • Press the garlic cloves into the skillet.
  • Once the garlic starts to sizzle and becomes fragrant, add the tomatoes and cook for about 4 minutes.
  • Add the sliced olives, oregano, and 3/4 cup water and stir to combine.
  • Once the sauce is rapidly simmering, add the steak back into the skillet. 
  • Cook for about 3 minutes on each side for medium rare.
  • Remove the steak and set on a cutting board where you will let it rest for about 5 minutes before slicing it. 
  • While you wait, continue simmering the sauce until thickened. It should take about 3 to 5 minutes. 
  • Thinly slice the steak against the grain and divide among plates.
  • Top with the tomato sauce.
