Sicilian Style Beef Steak

Another great recipe from Sonoma Diet. I've made several changes, but this is easy and delicious.
4 servings

1 lb boneless beef sirloin, 1 inch thick, trimmed of fat
salt, pepper
2 tbls olive oil
1/2 c onion, sliced
1/2 c celery, thinly sliced
1 14 ounce can whole tomatoes, chopped w/ juice (I used pureed)
3/4 cup sliced pitted ripe olives (I used stuffed green olives)
1 tbl capers
2 tsp chopped fresh oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
2 tbl chopped flat-leaf parsley

1. Season meat and brown in olive oil for about 6 minutes for rare. (Set aside and keep warm)

2. Add onion and celery and cook 4 minutes over medium low heat. Add tomatoes, olives, capers, oregano, garlic and red pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer, uncovered, til it begins to thicken.

3. To serve, slice meat thin and top with sauce.
