The hearty core of this steak and eggs dish is made of New York Strip Steaks, diced Yukon gold potatoes, and eggs! The potatoes get cooked in olive oil and seasoned with a homemade chili relish made of diced chili peppers, red onion, grape tomatoes, and red pepper flakes.
The steak gets cooked in the oven covered in thyme before making its way to the stove top in a cast-iron skillet. While in the skillet it gets a melted butter bath with more thyme and whole garlic cloves.
Finish this steak and egg breakfast off with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with fresh cracked peppercorn and microgreens such as basil!
How To Make Steak and Eggs
- Season the steak with salt and pepper before letting it rest and come to room temperature. Next, place them on a wire rack over a baking sheet, top with sprigs of thyme and butter, then cook in the oven on the center rack.
- Add diced chili peppers, red onion, grape tomatoes, and red pepper flakes to a food processer and pulse to make the chili relish.
- Cook the diced potatoes, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Then saute in the chili relish.
- Remove steak from the oven and allow it to rest while you place the cast iron skillet back over high heat. Place the steak into the cast iron to sear.
- Add butter, thyme sprigs, and whole garlic cloves into the skillet. Using tongs, render the fat on side of the steak and then flip to the other side and cook as well.
- Lower heat to medium and add the remaining butter. Spoon the melted butter over the steak continuously for 2 minutes before removing the steaks to allow them to rest.
- Fry the eggs in the leftover butter and fat in the skillet you just cooked the steaks in.
- Assemble your plate by placing the potatoes on one side, the new york strip to the other side, and top with potatoes and fried eggs.
- Garnish with fresh cracked peppercorn, microgreens, and season with salt and pepper if desired, enjoy!
What Temperature Should The Steak Be When It’s Done?
Using a meat thermometer check the temperature of the steak for doneness. For a medium-rare steak the temperature should be 125 degrees F and for medium 130 degrees F at the time of removal.
Keep in mind the temperature of the steak will rise another 5-7 degrees F after removing it from the skillet.
Can I Cook The Eggs Another Way?
Absolutely, cook the eggs any way you prefer! Mix it up and cook sunny side up eggs, over easy, or even scrambled!
Can I Use Garlic Powder Instead Of Whole Garlic Cloves?
Yes, you can! For every one clove of garlic that’s called for just add in 1/8th teaspoon of garlic powder. You can also add a little to a time, tasting as you go, until you find the right flavoring for you!
What Other Types Of Steak Can I Use For Steak And Eggs?
I prefer to make this breakfast with tender cuts of meat since they respond really well to being cooked in the oven and then pan-frying them. Other tender cuts of meat you could use would be porterhouse, T-bone, and ribeye!
Feel free to experiment with your favorite types of steak though!
