Ingredients For Steak And Eggs Recipe
This steak and eggs recipe requires only a few ingredients that you find in almost any store.

How To Make Steak And Eggs Recipe
Once you see how easy and quick it’s to prepare this delicious and nutritious breakfast recipe, it will become a staple in your kitchen, especially for those busy days. Here is everything you need to do:
Prepare the Steak
Pat the steak dry using a paper towel. This step will make the seasoning stick well to the meat.
Season generously both sides of the sirloin steak with salt and pepper.
Cooking Time for Steak:
Add one tbsp of oil to a large skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.
- For rare steak: Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
- For medium-rare: Cook for about 5 minutes on each side.
- For medium: Cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side.
- For medium-well: Cook for about 8-9 minutes on each side.
- For well-done: Cook for about 10 minutes on each side.
Test doneness with an instant-read thermometer (130-135°F for medium-rare; 140-145°F for medium, 150-155°F for medium-well, and 160-170°F for well-done).
Remove the steak from the pan and set aside for a few minutes to let all the juices redistribute evenly.
Make The Eggs
Add the remaining olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat, and carefully crack 2 eggs into the pan.
Season with salt and pepper, cover with a lid, and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Try not to flip the eggs if you prefer eggs sunny side up.
Slice the steak and serve with fried eggs garnished with fresh chopped parsley.
Tips For Making The Best Steak
- Use good quality ingredients. If you want to enjoy the best steak you have ever tried, try using the right cut of meat. Ribeye, filet mignon, or sirloin steak are the best you can use.
- Use room-temperature steak. To ensure evenly and quick cooking, you should remove the steak from the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking.
- Don’t overcrowd the pan. Ensure you leave enough space in the skillet where you cook the steak if you want to enjoy a nicely browned steak with a juicy interior.
- Let the cooked steak rest. After you cook the steak, it’s best to let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it. This step allows the juices to redistribute evenly, making the steak juicy and tender.
- Use a cast iron skillet. Try using a cast iron skillet to obtain a perfect sear when cooking the steak.
Tips For Making The Best Fried Eggs
- Use a non-stick skillet. Using the right pan when cooking eggs makes everything easier and helps the eggs not stick to the pan.
- Crack the eggs gently. This step will prevent the yolks from cracking.
- Use fresh eggs. Fresh eggs are a must since they have a better flavor and texture.
- Use a lid. A lid will make the eggs cook evenly and have a soft and tender texture.
- Fridge: Transfer any leftover steak and eggs to airtight containers in the fridge and store them for up to 3 days.
- Freeze: You can store the cooked steak in the freezer for up to 4 months, but the eggs aren’t freezer-friendly since they will change their texture and flavor while thawed.
