  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Cool for 10 minutes. Refrigerate until chilled.
