Last night's experiment was another Jennifer Original...
Spiced Steak with Feta
2 blade steaks about 1/3 lb. each
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp basil
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 oz. feta cheese
Combine seasonings, and press onto both sides of steak. Shake lightly to remove excess. Spray grilling surface (I used my grill pan) with olive oil. Grill steak - about five minutes per side (cover if possible). Remove steak from heat and lest rest an additional five minutes. Slice thinly across the grain. Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and serve. 2 servings.
Assessment: Too much oregano; not enough garlic -- but still thought it quite tasty. Next time, will try 3/4 tsp oregano and 2 tsp garlic powder. Basil was just right. Another idea: mix in a diced shallot with the feta. Also, may try a marinade version with diced garlic, basil, oregano, and olive oil instead of using a spice rub.Posted by Jennifer at July 10, 2003 5:55 PM
