Bifteki normally isn't on a skewer like above but in a burger form.
Sometimes bifteki is stuffed with feta, then it's called bifteki gemisto. That is so good!
I did that with the burger below. Stuffed the ground meat with feta and served it on a burger with lettuce, red onion and tzatziki.
Skewers or burger
You can decide how to eat this, skewers is easy for a bbq for example.
I love Greek food, the flavours are pure. A lot of the time you use the same ingredients like oregano, parsley and mint. This all goes into the bifteki as well.
My favourite dip, it goed well with everything, think of courgette fries or lemon potatoes.The recipe, look here,is very easuy. You just need a good creamy Greek yoghurt, grated cucumber, garlic, olive oil and dill.
If you want to complete your Greek experience you can make the Greek pita's to match. They're baked in a non stick pan and are pretty easy to make. You can find the recipe over here voor een uitgebreide omschrijving. Serveer er dan ook direct versgebakken frietjes bij.
- 500 grams ground beef
- 1 onion (grated)

- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
- 1 tablespoon chopped mint
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
- pinch cumin
- 1 egg, raw
- pepper and salt
- Mix all the ingredients together and let this sit for at least an hour
. I always use plenty of salt because ground beef needs
a lot to really be seasoned well.
- Take a handfull of meat and form it around a skewer. Repeat.
