- 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
- 1 medium shallot
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 sprig rosemary, leaves stripped
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 lemon, halved
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 pounds flank steak
- 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
- 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley
Pierce the steak all over with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Rub 1 heaping tablespoon olive mixture all over the steak, then set aside, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, toss the remaining olive mixture with the tomatoes, parsley, the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and the juice of the remaining 1/2 lemon in a small bowl.
Grill the steak until browned on one side, about 7 minutes. Flip and cook about 7 more minutes for medium rare. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes. Cut in half; reserve one half for steak sandwiches (at right). Thinly slice the remaining steak against the grain and top with the olive-tomato tapenade.
