Greek Bifteki

    35 min

    This is my own version of bifteki. They aren't usually made with cheese, but I find the feta makes them all the more tasty!. Serve on it's own with a Greek salad, or as burgers in a bap. These are also good baked in the oven.

    Serves: 4 

    • 500g (1 1/4 lb) beef mince
    • 1 tablespoon low fat natural yoghurt
    • 1 dessertspoon dried thyme
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 100g (4 oz) feta cheese

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat barbecue for indirect heat.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together mince, yoghurt, thyme and salt and pepper. Form meat into 8 thin patties, about 5cm (2 in) in diameter.
    3. Cut the cheese into 4 slices. Place one cheese slice between two patties, and seal the edges. Repeat with remaining patties and cheese slices. Set bifteki aside.
    4. Brush cooking grate with oil, and arrange bifteki on hot grate. Cover, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until meat is cooked through and cheese is melted.


    Want to stretch your pound? Do as they do in Greece and mix the mince with an equal amount of moist bread. This will stretch the recipe, and your pound, and also make for a deliciously moist burger.

    Amazing! A hit with the housemate, very tasty and great for low carbers too :-)  -  11 Apr 2011


    This is such a simple recipe but oh so delicious. My husband kept going on about them, so thank you a great recipe. I now have to teach my husband how to make it so he can do it on the bbq when we next have one.  -  14 Apr 2015


    Didn't find this tasty at all. Good idea with the feta but it ended up being too dry  -  18 May 2016
