Steak, Tomato, and Feta Bruschetta (Adorn Dinner Party)

I recently prepared food for a dinner party for Adorn Media Group. It was a fun experience, and I got to meet some great ladies! The dinner was family style, with drinks, dessert, and lots of food! It was a great time to talk and connect!

One of the more popular dishes was a steak, tomato, and feta bruschetta.  I used a honey glaze on the steak to add sweetness, which contrasted well with the tart feta cheese and tangy tomatoes. The bread was a great addition, but also a perfect vessel to bite into! The balsamic glaze was a perfect topper to finish!

Steak, Tomato, and Feta Bruschetta (makes 24)
1 Baguette
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
2 tbsp Olive Oil
24 Grape Tomatoes
8 oz Feta Cheese, Crumbled
1 lb Flat Iron Steak
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 tbsp Honey
Balsamic Glaze or Reduction

1. Slice the baguette into about 1/2 inch slices. Lay them flat on a sheet pan and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Toast in the oven at 350 until dried out and slightly golden on the edges.
2. Slice grape tomatoes into 4 pieces.
3. Cut steak into manageable pieces, and season on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
4. Preheat the pan. When it's hot, add the steak and cook until done, about 2 minutes on each side. Check by applying pressure (learn how to cook the perfect steak here),
5. After it's done, brush the outside of the steak with the honey, then rest for 10 minutes.
6. Cut the steak into thin slices.
7. Layer the bruschetta with bread, tomatoes, steak, feta, and balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.

The steak bruschetta is a pretty simple way to impress guests at your next dinner party! It's a great hors d'oeuvre, and can be made beforehand. All you have to do is keep all the components separate (and the steak warm) until you're ready to stack and serve!
