1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Vegetable oil (for brushing)

Salad Ingredients
1 cup finely chopped red onion
3 tbsp sherry vinegar, divided

2 tbsp prepared horseradish
1 tbsp Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp hot pepper sauce

Steak Directions
Place steaks on a large rimmed baking sheet, season with salt.  Mix sugar and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl; rub all over steaks.  Cover and refrigerate 1-3 hours.

Mix onion and 1 tablespoon vinegar in a large bowl.  Let macerate 10 minutes, tossing often.  Add tomatoes, celery, and olives.

Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, olive brine, horseradish, and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl.  Slowly whisk in oil.  Add to bowl with tomato mixture; toss to coat.  Season with salt and pepper.
