Emanuel, are you talking to me...?

The OP's problem might be caused by a incorrectly configured PATH,
which I can't help because I'm not familiar with Windows/Emacs.
However anyway EShell grep should work by default.

For those who may need to know:
In EShell if you just use "grep" in the command line, it invokes
built-in grep facility implemented by emacs lisp.

And if you want to use system grep, you need to specify it by a leading
star like "*grep".

See below eshell log:
~ $ which grep 
eshell/grep is a compiled Lisp function in ‘em-unix.el’
~ $ which *grep
