grecian beef, tomato & cucumber salad

Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef flank steak or boneless top sirloin or top round steak, cut 3/4 inch thick
  • 1/4 cup prepared Greek dressing as marinade
  • 3 medium tomatoes, cut into 8 wedges each
  • 2 medium cucumber
  • 1 cup pitted Kalamata olives, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup prepared dressing
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese

Directions

Cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/8 to 1/4-inch thick strips. Place beef and 1/4 cup dressing in medium bowl; toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes to 2 hours.

Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add 1/2 of beef; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. Do not overcook. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining beef.

Toss tomatoes, cucumbers and olives with 1/2 cup dressing in serving bowl. Top with beef; sprinkle with cheese.

Cook's Tip: Try using English or hothouse cucumbers in this recipe. Often sold wrapped in plastic, English cucumbers have almost no seeds and thin, edible skins.
