Spanako - Steaks [Tom]

NY Strip Steaks Stuffed with Spinach Filling for Two

Many steak restaurants serve spinach side dishes to compliment the steak. Some of these dishes are creamed spinach, spinach and potatoes or spinach with garlic and oil. We decided to make them as one.

20 minutes prep and 15 minutes to cook.

Here is what you will need:

- 2 1 to 1 1/2 inch thick strip steaks
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1 tsp minced fresh dill
- 2 Tbs minced onion
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 2 dashes each salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (reserved)

Place the spinach in a microwave safe bowl and wave for 1 minute. Drain the spinach. Add all the ingerdients except the reserved 1/4 cup feta. Mix well.

Stand the steaks up on their sides. With a sharp knife cut a pocket. Do not cut all the way through. We marinated our steaks but it is not necessary.

Fill the pockets with the spinach mixture. Put 4 toothpicks through the meat to hold the mixture in while grilling or frying.

Cook to your desired doneness. Sprinkle the 1/4 cup crumbled feta on top.

We served the steaks with City Diner Home Fries.
