Greek Ore-Ida Totchos with Homemade Tzatziki


Greek Totchos

*I received a free bag of Ore-Ida Tater Tots from @Influenster and @OreIda to create a recipe (#OreIdaTotchos #contest) and review the product for them. I received no other compensation for this article. All opinions and ideas are my own and should only be read as such.

I have been on a mission to make different recipes every weeknight for my family for slightly more than 2 years now. We have tried many new ingredients and flavors during our game. My family has found they really love Greek flavors such as garlic, dill, salty Feta and tangy vinegar. When we were challenged by Ore-Ida to create a Totcho recipe, using their Tater Tots, I immediately thought of the flavors my family loves.

I picked up the bag of Ore-Ida Tater Tots on my weekly shopping trip and couldn’t wait to try making Totchos for dinner!

Verdict:

This turned out better than I ever imagined. The tangy vinegar and lemon juice in the steak marinade with the creamy, cooling bite of the garlic, dill and sour cream were perfect. A hint of saltiness from the Feta cheese and a bit of crunch from the tater tots led to the perfect bite.

I served this with a green side salad. This can also be topped with diced tomatoes, onions or olives as you wish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (32 oz) bag Ore-Ida Tater Tots
  • 1 1/2 – 2 lbs. steak
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons oregano, dried
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 cup+ Feta cheese

Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cucumber either with no seeds or deseeded to reduce moisture, small dice
  • 1 tablespoon + powdered garlic
  • 1 tablespoon + dill weed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • parsley, diced tomatoes, diced onions or olive slices as desired for toppings

Directions:

  1. Place steak, olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, minced garlic, oregano, black pepper and bay leaves in a storage bag. Shake until all ingredients are mixed. Place in refrigerator for at least 6 – 8 hours to marinate.
  2. When ready to make dish remove steak from bag and throw away remaining marinade in bag. Cook steak to your desired temperature (we do ours medium-rare) in your favorite method – grilled, stove top or oven.
  3. While steak is cooking begin making Tzatziki sauce. Stir together cucumber, sour cream, dill weed, powdered garlic and a dash of salt. Stir well and taste for flavors. Add spices to suit your taste. We generally use almost 2 tablespoons of garlic, but we love garlic! Once flavors are balanced for your family place the Tzatziki sauce covered in refrigerator to allow flavors to meld together.
  4. Remove steak from heat and set aside to cool. Once slightly cooled cut into small bite sized pieces.
  5. Cook Ore-Ida Tater Tots according to package directions.
  6. Once Tater Tots are cooked remove from oven. Place a serving of Tater Tots on a plate and top with a serving of steak.  Sprinkle with Feta cheese and a dollop of Tzatziki sauce on top. Add other toppings as desired.
  7. Serve hot.
