Greek Steaks on the Grill

This recipe comes from my friend Valerie. We were co-workers many years ago. She now lives a couple hours away so we keep in touch via email & Facebook. This steak recipe sounds delicious. I love anything with Feta cheese!

2 well trimmed rib eyes, about 1” thick and average 1 # a piece
1 ½ tsp garlic powder
1 ½ tsp dried basil (crushed)
1 ½ tsp dried oregano leaves (crushed)
½ tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp Atheno’s Basil & Tomato Crumbled Feta Cheese*
1 tbsp chopped pitted Kalamata or ripe olives

Combine garlic, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Press, then pierce into both sides of the steak.
Grill steaks approximately 11-14 min each, turning as needed. This is for medium-rare to medium doneness. As with all cooking, grill temperature will affect cooking time. Remove from the grill and sprinkle with lemon juice, feta cheese and olives (if you like them).

*Sometimes you cannot find Atheno’s Basil & Tomato Feta Cheese that’s already crumbled, but they sell it in block as well. Works just as good, just more work in the kitchen. You can use plain feta as well.
