Take a simple marinated grilled steak and top it with a flavorful salsa and what do you get? Well, you get grilled steaks with red pepper and feta salsa!
The saltiness of the feta matched very well with the slightly grilled, slightly charred red peppers. And let's not forget the every so slight kick that the habanero gives it! That's right.. a little spice is nice, my friends, don't be scared. And, if you actually are worried, use only half of the habanero instead of the whole thing, but please use it. The tiny bit of sweetness that the habenro brings, along with it's spice, is just fantastic!
The salsa makes an already delicious steak, that much better!
Grilled Steaks with Red Pepper and Feta Salsa
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
- Serves 2 -
2 sirloin steaks (or any cut you prefer)
1/4 cup beer
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon honey
salt and pepper
For the salsa -
1 red pepper
1 habanero pepper, finely minced
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
1-2 Tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
pepper to taste
In a bowl mix together the beer, Worcestershire, olive oil, and honey until well combined. Season with a little salt and pepper. Place steaks in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over and place in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.
Preheat grill to 400 degrees F. Oil the grill grates and place steaks directly over the fire. Grill both sides until desired doneness. (I like mine more on the medium rare side and it takes about 3-5 minutes per side. Chris likes his more on the done side so his usually stays on about 8-10 minutes per side. This all depending on the thickness of the steak, of course.) Remove from grill and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.
Meanwhile, place the pepper on the grill and allow to grill for 5 minutes. Remove from grill, remove the stem and seeds, and roughly chop. Toss in a bowl with habanero, garlic, parsley, and feta. Season with pepper to taste. Serve with steaks and enjoy!
