About this recipe: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.
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

Preheat barbecue for indirect heat.
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.
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.
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.
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
