As Aired On June 7, 2012
Recipe Courtesy of the American Heart Association
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound boneless top sirloin steak, all visible fat discarded, cut into 4 pieces
2 cups grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons chopped kalamata olives, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Vegetable oil spray
1.) In a large airtight plastic bag, combine the garlic, oregano, lemon zest, lemon juice, and pepper. Add the steak and turn to coat. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 8 hours, turning occasionally.
2.) Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the topping ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
3.) Drain the steaks. Discard the marinade.
4.) Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and lightly spray with vegetable oil spray (being careful not to spray near a gas flame). Cook the steaks for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the desired doneness. (Or grill or broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat as directed.)
5.) To serve, place each steak on a plate. Spoon the topping over each serving.
Serves 4; 3 ounces meat and 1/2 cup topping per serving
