Prep Time: 20 Min.
Cook Time: 19 Min.
What you need:
* 2 beef T-Bone or Porterhouse steaks, cut 1-in. thick (about 1 lb. each) * 1 medium lemon * 1 Tbsp. Greek seasoning (or substitute a mixture of dried oregano leaves, garlic salt, and onion powder) * 1 medium cucumber, cut lengthwise in half, then crosswise into thin slices (about 2 c.) * 2 c. halved grape tomatoes * 1/3 c. crumbled feta cheese * salt and pepper
What to do:
1. Grate peel and squeeze 1 Tbsp. juice from lemon. Combine Greek seasoning and lemon peel. Reserve 2 tsp. mixture for salad. Press remaining mixture evenly onto beef steaks. 2. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11-16 min. (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 15-19 min.) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. 3. Meanwhile, combine reserved 2 tsp. seasoning mixture, lemon juice, cucumber, tomatoes and cheese in medium bowl, stirring to combine. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. 4. Remove bones; carve steaks into slices. Season with salt, as desired. Serve beef with cucumber and tomato salad.
* To broil, place steaks on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3-4 inches from heat. Broil 15-20 min. for medium rare to medium doneness, turning once
