Steak and Eggs Breakfast American Style Recipe-


(serves 2)

  1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).
  2. Lightly brush the steaks on both sides with oil and season evenly with salt, pepper, and the paprika. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.
  3. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the steaks over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes for rare, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, turning once or twice (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over indirect heat). When you turn the steaks, place a 12-inch cast-iron skillet on the cooking grate to preheat. Remove the steaks from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Lower the temperature of the grill to medium heat (350° to 450°F).
  4. Coat a grille-friendly skillet’s bottom (cast iron is best) with the butter. Crack the eggs into the skillet and season them with salt and pepper. Cook over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked as desired, 4 to 6 minutes for partially runny yolks, 6 to 7 minutes for hard yolks. Transfer to plates and serve right away with the steak.
  5. Serve your Steak and Eggs Breakfast American Style either with buttered toast on the side, or with the eggs placed on top of a slice of toast. Also very popular is to serve some hash brown potatoes on the side. (See how to make hash brown potatoes as part of the recipe for the “All American Breakfast”) And, as always, for the true American breakfast ethnic experience, have freshly brewed, dark roast coffee to serve, and perhaps some fresh squeezed orange juice, too.

  1. Have to agree about the steak and eggs being the classic American hearty breakfast. However, you left out the coffee! Absolutely have to have some fresh brewed hearty coffee to go with it, LOL.

  2. I know when my hubby is really, really MAN HUNGRY in the morning, there’s nothing he loves better than this All American steak and eggs breakfast, LOL.

  3. Nothing my hubby loves more than a good old American steak and eggs breakfast, that’s for sure. Grilled is best, but even stovetop seared and then oven roasted steak works good, too.

  4. Nothing beats good old steak and eggs for breakfast when you are really hungry and got a full day’s work ahead of you!

  5. I live up north and this grilled steak and eggs recipe is giving me cabin fever! Come on, spring and grilling time! LOL
