2 lean rib eye steaks (8 oz. each) (or similar cut)
1 ½ t oregano flakes
1 t basil flakes
½ t salt
¼ t pepper
1 T oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cloves garlic each cut in quarters
2 T crumbled feta cheese
1 T lemon juice
1 T chopped pitted kalamata olives
When preparing steaks stovetop, I like to use a cast iron pan – I find it distributes heat the best and puts a nice sear on the outside of the meat. Sprinkle both sides of the steak with the oregano, basil, salt and pepper and rub into the meat. Heat oil in a skillet and cook garlic quarters 1 minute. Then add minced garlic and cook another minute then add the steaks and cook 8-10 minutes each side or until desired doneness. Remove from heat and sprinkle with lemon juice and garnish with feta and olives. Cut each steak in half before serving.
