Steak Crostini

These steak crostini with whipped feta are so delicious. They make a great appetizer, but Jon and I love these so much we frequently have this as a meal with some barrel aged Cabernet and kale salad.

If you are looking to impress party guests, make this recipe! It’s easy to prepare but presents as a gourmet dish you’ve worked on for hours.

Honey Garlic Steak

If you’ve never paired steak with honey and garlic, now is the time to try it because its the best. To make the best honey garlic sauce for this recipe, you need reserve the browned butter and garlic from cooking the steak.

I suggest using to sirloin steak in this recipe. After you sear the steak you’ll melt some butter, herbs and crushed garlic in the hot skillet and spoon it over the steak while it finishes cooking to medium rare. You use the melted butter and garlic that’s left in the skillet after cooking the steak to make the honey garlic sauce.

Steak Crostini with Whipped Feta

The combinations of flavor in this dish will blow your mind. The tangy whipped feta, with the savory umami steak, with the garlicky sweet honey drizzle and herbaceous thyme; my goodness it’s good.

You can use a food processor or a blender to make whipped feta. I suggest using barrel aged feta cheese if you can find it. I used an oak barrel aged sheep milk feta from a Greek brand, Kourellas, and 10/10 recommend it. Blended with homemade Greek yogurt, it made the most delicious whipped feta.

Steak Crostini Appetizer
