A favourite from when I used to live in Greece. And in the summer I make Biftekia at least once a week. You pronounce it like beef-TE-kya. They taste really good if you squeeze some fresh lemon juice over them.
Ingredients for 3-4 persons
500 gram minced beef
1,2 dl bread crumbs
1-2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 small chopped onion
1/2 dl of chopped parsley
2 table spoons olive oil
1-2 table spoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1, Mix everything in a big bowl and either stir with a wooden spoon or mix it all with your hands.
2, Form into small hamburger shapped patties and place on a plate.
3, Either grill them, or use a frying pan.
4, Serve with tzatziki, potato cloves, salad…
Kali orexi as they say in Greece. It means Good appetite. And eating Greek food often means good food. So enjoy!
