Scale

Ingredients

  • 500g minced beef or a combination of beef/lamb/pork (18 ounces)
  • 1 small ripe tomato, grated
  • 1 red onion, grated
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 12 tsps salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tomato, sliced for topping
  • 100g feta cheese for topping (34 ounces)

Instructions

  1. To prepare this Greek bifteki recipe, add in a large bowl the minced beef along with the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly with your hands. If the mixture is too sticky add some more breadcrumbs (or some water if it is to dry), till the mix is solid. If you have the time, it is better to knead the mixture for about 10 minutes, until all the ingredients combine. Alternatively, you can mix it using an electric mixer, with the dough hook at low speed.
  2. When done, put the mixture for the burgers (bifteki) in the fridge to rest for about 10 minutes, whilst preheating the oven to 200C.
  3. Knead the mixture in flat round burgers. Place the biftekia on a large baking tray and cook in the oven for 18 minutes, flipping the burgers, mid-through cooking time. Top each bifteki with a slice of tomato and a small block of feta cheese and bake further for 7 minutes.
  4. Serve the biftekia, while still hot with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle a pinch of dried oregano. Enjoy!
