Feta and Caramelized Onion Crusted Steaks for SRC Reveal

Grilled Steak with feta, onions, and panko

Feta and Caramelized Onion Crusted Steaks

This month’s SRC Assignment found me sneaking around over at Amy’s Cooking Adventures.

Secret Recipe Club

 Actually, I wouldn’t call it “sneaking”. I spent so much time on Amy’s blog, looking here, clicking there, pinning a few things to try later, that I’m surprised she didn’t quickly guess it was me who had been assigned her blog for the June SRC reveal. Lots of good stuff over at her house. Since it’s grilling season, I finally landed on her Feta and Caramelized Onion Crusted Steaks for my choice.

Usually when I grill a steak, it’s just with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Sometimes Montreal Steak Seasoning. When I saw onions, feta and Panko, I knew I had landed on something special. And special it was. This is delicious, and easy. Before I even started the grill, I caramelized the onions and set them aside. While the steak was grilling, I completed the crust mixture and assembled one of my favorite tossed salads, Tree House Salad. The sweetness of the onions, the salty feta and the crunch of Panko bread crumbs made this a great little Summer Meal. Thanks for the recipe Amy.

Feta and Caramelized Onion Crusted Steaks for SRC Reveal
Recipe type: Steak
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 2 tbsp butter, divided
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 ½ lb top sirloin steak, cut into 4 pieces
  • ⅓ cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp panko bread crumbs
  • Salt & pepper
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and stir to coat. Cook for 5 minutes or until tender.
  2. Turn the heat to medium-low and continue cooking and stirring frequently until the onions have reached a deep amber color, 30-40 minutes. Place the onions in a small bowl to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining butter in a large oven proof skillet over medium heat. Season the steaks generously with salt and pepper on both sides, then add to the heated butter.
  4. Brown the steaks for 5 minutes on each side.
  5. While the steaks cook, add the panko and feta to the caramelized onions and stir to mix.
  6. Top the browned steaks with the feta and onion mixture (if your skillet is not broiler/oven proof, transfer to steaks to a baking sheet first).
  7. Place the coated steaks 4-6 inches under the broiler and cook for 3-5 minutes or until cooked to desired doneness.

    First of all, I LOVE your steak board, Lea Ann! Easy to see it’s used often.
    What an interesting mixture to top that lovely steak. Never would have thought to mix feta with panko and onions.

    Now this is my kind of steak! Oh yes, a good piece of meat is good with just a light seasoning of salt and pepper… but sometimes it’s even better with a bit more added to it!! YUM!

    I’ve never seen this particular combo, but it does sound mighty tasty! (Plus, it’s great to see new and interesting flavors mixed together.) :)
