I cannot tell a lie, I really like the flavor of beef with olives and tomatoes, but I found this to be FAR too salty. I probably could have guessed how it would taste, but I was still a little surprised at how hard it was to get past the saltiness, despite really liking the flavor otherwise.

Extremely easy and very tasty. I noticed several ratings said this recipe needed a little extra something. I added a pepper spice blend which really increased the flavor combination of the beef and olives.



Easy for a day when you're going to be out all day. I found that rinsing the olives takes away much of the saltiness. It's a good fall-back recipe when time is short for prep and you need something when you get home.
