Healthy Recipe: Greek Cubed Steak

Healthy Eating

Put a tweak on an old tradition…

Making Greek cubed steak is a tweak on tradition and includes some fun flavors. It’s fun pounding the steak too, since it’s one of the few times you can bash away with a rolling pin. First grab a gallon-sized plastic bag and slice the sides open so you can pound without making a gooey mess. Flattening helps cook the steak faster and make it more tender.

You’ll be coating the steak with a flour and spice mixture of oregano, salt and pepper. That may not sound too exotic, but have no fear—more spices are coming. Pause and put two tablespoons of oil in a pan on medium high heat to cook the steak. As it warms, coat each piece of meat with the flour mixture. Once the oil is hot, you’ll be cooking each side for 3-4 minutes.

Get ready for more flavor.

Before the steak is done, you’ll be chopping up onion, fresh garlic, and Greek olives, which because of their saltiness mean you don’t need to add salt. Artichoke slices will be going in too, along with a final finishing pinch of spinach and parsley.

Another unusual twist is orzo pasta, which looks like a rice grain but will soak up the steak’s flavors. After removing the steak, use the pan to sauté the onions before adding the garlic, olives and artichokes. Next comes a can of diced tomatoes, oregano and a fourth cup of chicken broth. Mix everything up and bring to a simmer before adding the pasta and steak.

Take time to watch the video to see the whole process.
