Grilled Steak and Eggs is perfect for a non-working day, like weekends or holidays. Americans love to grille, and starting off a new day with a hearty grilled steak and eggs breakfast is just about as good as it gets when living in any American Dream.
Steak and Eggs Breakfast American Style Recipe-
- 2 New York strip steaks, each 10 to 12 ounces and about 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black peppercorns
- 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
- 4 large eggs
- Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
