Today I went to a drinks party and met some of my new neighbours which was lovely. We all brought a plate of food and here is what I made. Homemade tapenade is delicious and well worth a go. Here’s the recipe…
200g Black Olives
1 tablespoons capers
2 - 3 anchovies
1 clove of garlic - crushed
Juice of half lemon
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon or dried Thyme or oregano
Black pepper (no salt)
1 whole garlic clove for rubbing
A few olives - sliced
250-300g fillet steak
12 thin slices of ciabatta or sourdough - roughly 5cm in length
Blitz the tapenade ingredients together and set to one side. Season the beef generously. Sear the beef to your liking. I like it rare for this recipe. Leave to rest or leave it to cool completely before thinly slicing.
Toast the bread and allow to cool.
Rub each slice with the raw garlic. Top each toast with a teaspoon full of tapenade, followed by a slice of steak, 1 olive slice and a parsley leaf. Drizzle with oil just before serving
