So I was cleaning out and reorganizing our freezer a couple of weeks ago, and I stumbled across a couple T-bone steaks.  Talk about luck!  I’d picked ’em up at a local butcher shop a couple of months ago and stashed them away for a warm summer day.  Well, summer arrived…and I forgot about those T-bones.  That is until I decided to reorganize the freezer.  I’ll admit that finding a forgotten T-bone steak in the freezer is somewhat akin to finding that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  Whenever I undertake a freezer cleaning, I typically just find another bag of pesto or jalapenos or 4 sandwich bags of chipotle in adobo sauce.  All useful ingredients…but not nearly as exciting as a steak!

Those T-bones soon turned into these Grilled T-Bone Steaks with Greek Seasoning.  And they were delicious!  I’m not kidding one bit when I say that these Grilled T-Bone Steaks can be made on a weeknight.  A bit of Greek seasoning gets rubbed onto both sides of the T-bones, and then off to the grill.  Nice and easy!

Ever heard of a porterhouse steak?  It’s actually quite similar to a T-bone, and the two are often confused.  (Technically, a porterhouse is just a larger version of a T-bone, but there is little agreement about much larger a porterhouse needs to be as compared to a T-bone.)  I’ve often heard the T-bone referred to as a “his and her” steak because a larger T-bone (or porterhouse) is actually 2 steaks.  You’ve got the New York Strip steak on one side and a Filet Mignon steak on the other side.  For more info on this cut (and others), check out Beef.

I think the “his and her” nickname comes from the fact that the NY Strip is larger, thus the “his” part.  However, that doesn’t work in our house.  Given a choice, both Laura and I will order a New York Strip.  So when these Grilled T-Bones came off the grill, Laura and I both “fought” over the New York Strip portions.  I say “fought,” but in reality Laura got her way.  I mean c’mon.  The consolation prize here is a filet mignon, and I’m ok with that!

Grilled T-Bone Steaks with Greek Seasoning

We served these Grilled T-Bone Steaks with Greek Seasoning up along with a simple chopped tomato and cucumber salad.  The grilled T-bones + the salad go together quite perfectly as both use the same seasonings.  You’ll need lemon zest and Greek seasoning for the steak rub.  You’ll need lemon juice and Greek seasoning for the salad.  Notice the similarities?  I don’t typically keep spice mixes in my pantry, so I just whipped up a homemade version of the Greek seasoning.  Half went on the steaks.  Half went on the salad.  And there were no leftovers by the end of the night!

If you’re looking for a different steak to grill, might I suggest these Grilled T-Bone Steaks?  I recognize that a T-bone isn’t exactly “different,” but (at least for us) it’s not one of our go-to cuts of steak.  Now I’m off to reorganize my freezer again in hopes that I find another T-bone hiding in there somewhere.  Get out there and enjoy the grilling season!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium lemon
  • 1 Tbsp Greek seasoning see note
  • 2 T-bone steaks cut 1” thick (~16 oz. each)
  • 1 medium cucumber sliced
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes halved
  • ½ cup feta cheese crumbled

Instructions

  • Preheat grill to medium heat.
  • Before slicing, zest the lemon and combine the lemon zest with the Greek seasoning. Set 2 tsp of this mixture aside and rub the rest into both sides of the T-bone steaks.
  • Grill steaks covered for 16-20 minutes, flipping occasionally, or until steaks reach desired doneness. (Note: I found that ~18 minutes was perfect for medium doneness.)
  • Meanwhile, juice the lemon into a small mixing bowl. Add the reserved 2 tsp of seasoning along with the cucumbers, tomatoes and feta cheese; toss until well combined.
  • Let steaks rest for at least 5 minutes before carving into slices. Serve with cucumber + tomato salad.

Notes

To make ~1 Tbsp of your own Greek seasoning, combine the following: ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp dried basil, ½ tsp dried oregano, ¼ tsp black pepper, ¼ tsp dried parsley, ¼ tsp dried rosemary, ¼ tsp dried dill, ¼ tsp dried thyme, ¼ tsp ground nutmeg, ¼ tsp ground cinnamon.

  1. Isn’t it exciting to find treasure in the back of the freezer? Yesterday I poked around behind a few pints of ice cream hoping to find a stray piece of banana bread but no luck. . . Greek flavors are among my favorites so I’m getting really hungry right now. Happy Wednesday!

    1. Oh man, no stray banana bread!? Well you know what that means! Time to eat some ice cream instead. Haha. Just kidding…time to bake some banana bread of course. 🙂 I’ve gotta say that the Greek tomato salad here was quite tasty along with the steaks. I’m all about using the same seasoning mix for both. Thanks so much, Kelsie!

  2. Woot! You seriously hit a jackpot when you found that steak and lucky me, this will be on my weekend menu. And I need to clean up my freezer too, and see if I have a hidden stash.

    1. You’re telling me, Linda! I was like, “Hey, what are these? Oh wait. Those are the T-bones steaks!” Man, I was excited about that find for sure! And the easy Greek seasoning + the tomato salad was a great combo. Thanks so much, Linda!

  3. Hi David! My favorite steak is a ribeye, but you’ll never see me turn down a T-bone or porterhouse! We had steaks a couple of nights ago and I made a Greek salad similar to yours, but mine also had thinly sliced red onions, black olives and sun dried tomatoes. I made a simple dressing using part olive oil and part of the oil from the sun dried tomatoes, lemon juice and herbs. It was so good that I picked up more Feta to make another! Great summertime meal my friend

    1. I hear ya on the ribeye, Dorothy! I love a good ribeye. Although, truthfully, I love a good steak no matter what. I was literally over the moon when I discovered these T-bones hanging out in the back of the freezer. Too bad I don’t have any more prizes like that hidden away. Maybe I should pick up some more steaks (ribeyes this time!) and hide them in the freezer. I’m sure I’ll forget about ’em soon enough only to find them later this Fall. Haha!

    1. Yes! You’re right. I hadn’t thought about it like that, but this is like a Greek salad minus the lettuce. Either way, it makes a great topping for over grilled steaks! 🙂 Thanks, Mimi!

  4. T-Bone steaks are not something I stumble across in my freezer – lucky you!

    Perfectly cooked with just the right amount of pink inside and that Greek style topping makes it a perfect meal!

    1. Haha…lucky me for finding those steaks in the freezer for sure! Although it does kinda say something about my memory…

      Either way, I’m not complaining one bit as these steaks were delicious! And the Greek salad topping? Perfect accompaniment!

  5. What a beautiful freezer you have, David! I wish I could find some meat too, but it’s been occupied by ice cream (3 store-bought containers, one large container of homemade, and one tiny container of forgotten homemade ice cream), ice cream cylinder, and ice cubs. It’s going to be this way for a while, but I hope it becomes more diverse in fall 😉 Anyway, these (unexpected) steaks looks super delicious. Would you trade some of it for homemade ice cream? 😉

    1. So I’m not so sure I would say our freezer is beautiful, Ben. It’s kinda a mish-mash of all sorts of stuff, and I’m constantly having to rearrange it to make it all fit. We keep saying that one of these weeks I should just not make anything and we’ll eat out of the freezer. But that never happens. Unless you happen to find steaks hiding in the freezer that is! I would gladly trade you some steaks for some ice cream. In fact, come on down and we’ll just make a party out of it! 🙂

    1. T-bones are definitely a fun steak, and I was super lucky to stumble across these. I can’t believe I had forgotten about ’em! But then again, it’s hard to keep it all straight when I’m chasing a toddler around all the time now. Haha! Thanks so much, Dawn!

  6. Oh yes ! The same thing often happens to me but I do not find T Bone that often. LOL ! Love your week dinner suggestion Mediterranean style ! Enjoy the week end and thank you !

    1. Haha! I’m right there with ya. Normally the stuff in the back of the freezer isn’t anything very exciting…but I got lucky this time! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well!

  7. Haha – yup, a foray into my freezer always seems to result in “4 sandwich bags of chipotle in adobo sauce” or more! Don’t think I’ve ever come across a t-bone though! And, like I’ve heard some folks say down here, your mama taught you well – letting Laura win the New York strip portions. I gotta say that salad you made to accompany those steaks sounds amazing, I think I could make a meal of those maybe with some chickpeas! YUM! Happy Friday, my friend!

    1. At least 4 bags of chipotle in adobo sauce! I always save the leftovers…and I always forget that I have them in there. Haha. So I was pretty darn pleased when I stumbled across the T-bones in the freezer! Talk about my lucky day. And then topping ’em with that simple summer salad with the Greek seasoning? Delicious! Chickpeas would definitely be a good addition. Thanks so much, Shashi, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
