Great Recipes Series - Stake and Eggs

After several people asking for it, I decided to start a series of recipes that are healthy and tasty at the same time. Being healthy is not about having to eat nasty food at all, its about knowing what you are eating and eat it at the right time.


Lets get right into it:



INGREDIENTS

1 1"-thick New York strip steak (about 13 oz.) 2 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided 1 tsp. Kosher salt, plus more for seasoning to taste 1 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning to taste 3/4 tsp. smoked paprika, plus more for seasoning to taste

2 tbsp. butter 4 eggs Roasted potatoes, for serving Parsley, for serving Dill, for serving


DIRECTIONS

  1. Remove steak from refrigerator and let come to room temperature, 30 minutes. 

  2. Rub steak with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and season all over with 1 ½ teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and ¾ teaspoon paprika.

  3. Heat a medium cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook, flipping once, until a deep golden crust begins to form on both sides of the steak, about 5 minutes total. 

  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and add butter to pan. Using a kitchen towel, carefully grip the skillet handle and tilt towards you so that the melting butter forms a pool at the bottom of the skillet. Using a spoon, continually baste butter onto steak to form a deeper golden crust. Flip steak and repeat, 2 to 3 minutes in total. Using a meat thermometer, check for doneness: 120-125°F  for medium rare, 130°F for medium. 

  5. Transfer steak onto a cutting board and let rest about 10 minutes. 

6. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Crack egg into pan and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until white is set and edges are just beginning to brown. Remove from pan and season with salt and pepper.

7. Slice steak into 1" strips on a bias, against the grain. 

8. Serve steak with eggs and potatoes. Garnish with herbs and season with more salt, pepper, and paprika to taste.

9. Probably the most important tip of them all; share it with yoour love ones and enjoy a great dish.
