How to Cook Beef Olives

Save

Beef has been a part of the American diet for decades. In the past 10 years, with the benefits of protein-rich diets, beef has become even more popular. Beef comes in different quality grades--such as prime, choice and select--different cuts--such as flank steak and short ribs--and different processes--such as corned beef and pastrami. Beef is extremely versatile, and is used in thousands of recipes, from soups and salads, to chilis and casseroles, and of course, steak. A traditional Mediterranean steak dish is Beef Olives, stuffed beef slices tied into oversize olive shapes. Mediterranean cultures see olives as a symbol of blessing and peace.
