Greek Beef Salad

Greek Beef SaladSlices of marinated and broiled beef steak, romaine lettuce, cucumber and red onion, tossed in a lemon and oregano vinaigrette, are garnished with crumbled feta and kalamata olives and served with crisp pita wedges.

Recipe Ingredients:

2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper

1 pound beef top round steak, cut 1-inch thick

6 cups torn romaine lettuce
1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 small red onion, cut into thin wedges
2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
8 kalamata or ripe olives
2 pita breads, toasted, cut into wedges

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Marinade: Whisk marinade ingredients in small bowl.
  2. For Steak: Place beef steak and 1/2 of marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally. Reserve remaining marinade.
  3. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat. Broil 17 to 18 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning once. Remove; let stand 10 minutes. Carve into thin slices.
  4. For Salad: Combine beef, lettuce, cucumber and onion in large bowl. Add reserved marinade; toss. Sprinkle with cheese and olives. Serve with pita wedges.
