Steaks with artichoke-red pepper tapenade and sweet potato fries
Tapenade is a dream condiment for a cook in a hurry. Full of bold and briny flavor, it adds instant richness as a dip, spread, or sauce. When you swap in marinated artichokes and roasted peppers for the traditional olives and capers, it makes a substantial accompaniment to steak.
