Flank Steak with White Beans – Low Sodium Version


1 tsp. Olive oil
1 clove Garlic, raw (minced)
1/2 ounce Prosciutto (minced)
1 small White onions (diced)
1 15 ounce can Canned no salt added white beans (drained and rinsed)
1 tsp. Rosemary, fresh
1 Tbsp. Fresh sage (coarsely chopped)
1 to taste Black pepper
1 cup No salt added vegetable stock (or no salt added chicken stock)
1/2 cup Water
1/3 Tbsp. Honey
8 ounce Beef flank steak
2 Tbsp. Tapenade
1 spray Spray olive oil


Place olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and prosciutto and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the onion and continue cooking, stirring frequently, for another 3 minutes. Add the beans, and toss for one minute. Add rosemary, sage, salt, pepper, chicken stock, and honey, and reduce heat to medium-low.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cook bean and spice mixture, simmering gently and stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, or until approximately 1/3 cup liquid remains.

When the oven is preheated, spread 1/2 of the tapenade on top of the flank steak. Spray the skillet lightly with olive oil and place flank steak in the skillet, tapenade side DOWN. Place in oven and cook for 8-10 minutes.

Spread the remaining tapenade on top of the flank steak and turn, then continue cooking for 5-7 minutes for medium-rare.

Remove flank steak from the oven and place it on a cutting board. While the flank steak is resting, divide the white bean mixture between two plates.

Slice flank steak thinly and place on top of white beans. Top with the jus that is on the cutting board and serve.

Recipe Notes

I like a lot of different flavors but I especially love a dish that is full of savory umami taste. This dish is an umami bomb with the sage, rosemary, beans, olives and steak.

"If you are a dreamer,come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer. If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!"
