Steak and eggs

While a tad heavy to eat for breakfast, steak and eggs is one of my favorite "brinner" dishes. (And, not to mention, ridiculously quick and easy to make.)

Ingredients

  • One  3/4-pound boneless sirloin steak
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • egg, or more as desired, preferably heirloom or organic

Directions

Generously season the steak with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a medium pan or cast-iron skillet until hot. Then, over medium-high heat, cook the steak until it reaches desired doneness (about 6 minutes on each side for medium-rare). Set the steak aside on a dish to rest.

Reduce the heat under the pan to medium and add the egg (or eggs). Season with a little salt and pepper, and cook for about 3 minutes or until edges of the whites curl and begin to brown. Remove from the pan and place on top of the steak to serve.

Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
