Ingredients & Cooking


  • 2 beef Strip Steaks Boneless, cut 3/4- inch thick (about 8 ounces each)
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic, divided
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion (half moon shaped slices)
  • 1 package (10-1/2 ounces) grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 3/4 cup Kalamata olives, cut in half
  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh baby spinach


  1. Press 2-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic evenly onto beef steaks. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add red onion and remaining 2 teaspoons garlic; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add tomatoes and olives; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently until onions and tomatoes are tender. Stir in spinach; cover. Remove skillet from heat. Let stand 3 minutes or until spinach is slightly wilted.

  4. Carve steaks into thin slices. Spoon spinach mixture evenly onto four plates; top with steak slices.
