Beef Olives Recipe


  • 6 thin slices of beef (preferably flank or sirloin)
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Toothpicks or cooking twine


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until they become translucent and fragrant.
  3. Remove the onion and garlic from the frying pan and set them aside in a bowl. In the same frying pan, cook the bacon slices until they are crispy. Once cooked, transfer the bacon to a cutting board and chop it into small pieces.
  4. Combine the sautéed onion, garlic, chopped bacon, bread crumbs, parsley, dried thyme, salt, and pepper in the bowl and mix well.
  5. Lay the beef slices on a cutting board and divide the filling mixture equally among them, spreading it evenly over each slice.
  6. Roll up each slice of beef tightly, securing it with toothpicks or cooking twine to keep them in place.
  7. Heat another tablespoon of olive oil in the frying pan over medium-high heat. Carefully sear the beef olives on all sides until browned.
  8. Transfer the beef olives to a baking dish and place them in the preheated oven. Bake for about 20–25 minutes, or until the beef is cooked to your desired level of doneness.
  9. Remove the beef olives from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  10. Remove the toothpicks or cooking twine before serving. Optionally, you can serve the beef olives with a delicious mushroom sauce or pair them with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables.
