INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED
This hearty breakfast of steak and eggs requires only a few simple ingredients. The precise measurements can be found in the recipe card below. Here’s a rundown of what you’ll need:
- Chuck eye steak: A very nicely marbled cut that is much less expensive than a ribeye but almost as good. So I go for it whenever it’s available. Other cuts, such as sirloin and New York strip, can also be used.
- Kosher salt and black pepper: If using fine salt, you may want to use less of it. A teaspoon of kosher salt is lighter than a teaspoon of regular salt.
- Avocado oil spray: This oil has a neutral flavor and is ideal for frying. You can also substitute butter.
- Eggs: In almost all of my recipes, I use large eggs, and this one is no exception.
- I like to top this dish with a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and some fresh chopped parsley. Dried parsley can also be used. Because these are mostly used as garnish, you can simply leave them out if you don’t have any on hand.
HOW TO MAKE STEAK AND EGGS
While not as simple as pouring cereal into a bowl, this is not a difficult breakfast to prepare. The recipe card below contains detailed instructions. Here are the fundamental steps:
- The steak should be cooked. Begin by seasoning and grilling the steak. In general, you should grill it for about 2 minutes per side for medium-rare, or 3 minutes total in a dual contact grill.
- If you’re using a New York strip, as I demonstrate in the video below, you should also cook the fat strip briefly.
- Cook the eggs. While the meat rests, quickly fry the eggs in a little butter or avocado oil. To make round eggs, I like to use metal biscuit cutters.
- Season to taste and serve. Season with salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and parsley before serving.
- Scrambled, poached, and over easy eggs are all tasty options.
- Alter the seasoning. Slather the finished steak with chimichurri for an extra-delicious option.
- Serve with sautéed onions and peppers on top.
- Home fries are also a tasty side dish.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS
It’s simple to make steak and eggs, and it gets easier with practice. These helpful hints will make this simple recipe even easier to follow.
- Cook Separately: If you’re worried about overcooking the eggs, cook them in the same skillet as the steak, but after the steak has been removed from the skillet and placed on a cutting board.
- Use Thin-Cut Steaks: Thin-cut steaks cook much faster and are ideal for breakfast or brunch.
- Change the Sauce: Instead of the garlic-parsley sauce, you can use chimichurri, Hollandaise, salsa, or even ketchup.
HOW TO STORE AND REHEAT STEAK LEFTOVERS
- While the eggs are best eaten fresh, any leftover steak can be easily sliced and stored! Simply place in a zip-top bag and refrigerate or freeze.
- Leftover steak can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days.
- Frozen leftover steak can be stored for up to three months. Thaw in the fridge overnight before using.
- Leftover steak slices can be served cold or reheated in a covered skillet over low heat until steaming hot all the way through. Overcooking will cause the steak to dry out.
Serve this recipe with fruit and vegetables for a refreshing contrast, as well as potatoes if no one objects. Here are some quick and easy recipes to try!
- Fruit Salad: Any fruit salad is delicious in my opinion, but this Moscato Fruit Salad is especially so. It’s light and sweet, and it looks like a bowl full of jewels!
- Asparagus: Is there anything better than steak, eggs, and asparagus? It’s not much! Steam it or use your grill pan to make this simple Grilled Asparagus.
- Crispy Air Fryer Potatoes: Get that crispy, hash-like goodness with ease by making a batch of Crispy Air Fryer Potatoes! The seasoned herb butter will be a hit with you!
Frequently Asked Questions
Any relatively thin cut of beef will suffice for this recipe. But whenever I come across a chuck eye in a store, I stock up. It’s a lovely, marbled cut. It’s almost as good as ribeye but much less expensive.
They can be cooked in the same pan, but not at the same time because they have different cooking times. Instead of grilling the steak, you can pan-fry it, cover it, and cook the eggs while it rests.
Absolutely! If you want to make this a complete meal, serve it with vegetables. This filling breakfast pairs well with a simple side of sliced tomato drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Serve it with a bowl of fresh berries for another delectable option.
