Bifteki(a), greek groud meat patties, were a staple growing up, easy and flavorful this simple dish delivers great results.

3/4 lb. ground sirloin
1/4 lb. ground lamb
1 small grated onion
1-2 cloves of minced garlic
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped mint
1 tablespoon chopped dill
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup red wine
1 large egg
1 tablespoon salt and pepper

Combine onion, garlic, parsley, mint, dill, oil and egg. Add sirloin, lamb, wine, salt and pepper. Mix just until combined. If mixture seems too wet add breadcrumbs. Cover and refriderate for at least an hour or overnight. Heat a cast iron grill. Shape beef mixture into 5-6 inch long or short logs. Place on heated grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through and no longer pink. Serve with french fries and of course feta.
