Great recipe! My family loved it! I used shaved mozzarella cheese instead of Asiago. The kids are not fans of olives so I did not add them to their steaks. I also cooked our steaks a little longer (30 mins).Absolutely Fabulous!!!

This steak was very good and tasty, however I felt that the cheese was too strong but that just may be my own taste. My family really enjoyed this meal.:-)
