Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lb steak, cut into bite sized pieces approx. 1 ½ in. cubes
  • 2-3 T olive oil
  • ½ T fresh thyme, finely chopped (¾ teaspoon for dried thyme)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped (½ teaspoon dried)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano (dried)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 c grape tomatoes, halved (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl or a large ziplok bag, combine olive oil, garlic, oregano, thyme, rosemary, lemon juice, salt and pepper and shake or whisk to combine well. Add in raw steak bites and allow to coat each piece. Marinate for at least 30 minutes and if possible can be marinated several hours and up to overnight.
  2. Heat a cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add steak and any extra olive oil from mixture into the skillet. Allow steak to cook 2-3 minutes per side, flipping once, trying to touch or flip minimally. If you like a steak that's more done, you can leave the steak on for an extra minute or so. Remove skillet from oven and toss halved tomatoes in allowing to heat slightly. Sprinkle with feta before serving.
