Sirloin Steak and Eggs

I Want In!

It seems like everyone’s go-to breakfast in the paleo world is bacon and eggs with some veggies in there (and honestly, who can blame that breakfast?).  I know that’s been mine for almost 3 years now.  But as the saying goes, variety is the spice of life, so I’ve been tinkering with another popular breakfast dish: steak and eggs.  I just didn’t want to go the classic route of fried eggs and pan roasted steak.

As most of you know, earlier in the year I was fortunate enough to compete in the Sous Vide Supreme Showdown featuring Tx Bar Organics Beefagainst some other great paleo bloggers.  I submitted a Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry recipe that came out amazing but I was also developing this recipe as well.  It was a tough decision between the two but I went with the stir fry in the end.  That doesn’t change the fact that this recipe is equally as tasty and I figured now is the time to break it out.  I think the egg is actually the star in this dish.  When cooked at the proper temperature, the white will set up and the yolk will have a pudding-like consistency…it’s amazing.

Now I know that this method takes more time than the traditional steak and eggs meal but it’s worth the wait.  It’s a perfect breakfast to serve on a lazy Sunday or as a breakfast in bed for that special someone.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place whole egg in its shell in a preheated Sous Vide Supreme at 144°F (62.5°C). Cook for 1 hour.
  2. While egg is cooking, place sirloin steak and 1 tbs butter in a vacuum bag, season with salt and pepper and seal. Refrigerate.
  3. After 1 hour, reduce temperature to 132°F (55.5°C). This is optional but it will give you a nice medium rare steak as opposed to medium.
  4. Place sirloin in sous vide and cook for 1-2 hours.
  5. With 20 minutes to go, melt coconut oil in a saucepan on medium heat and add broccolini. Season with salt and sauté for 5 minutes.
  6. Add remaining butter to broccolini and sauté another 10-15 minutes or until broccolini is fork tender. Remove from pan and set aside.
  7. Heat pan on medium high and remove sirloin and egg from sous vide.
  8. Sear steak on both sides for 30-45 second each side and remove from pan.
  9. Slice steak across the grain and serve with broccolini and egg.
  10. Garnish with about 1 tsp chopped fresh dill and enjoy

  1. Breakfast in Paleo Style is not the easiest thing. I always have eggs with some veggies. But you are right, for a Sunday Brunch this would be a great variety.

  1. […] Whether Dad’s following the Paleo diet or just describes himself as a meat-n-potatoes guy, a hearty breakfast of steak and eggs is not only easy, but has the ring of a special occasion. You can follow the steak-and-eggs motif in a breakfast sandwich, breakfast taco or Paleo scramble, but sometimes, only the classic will do. Serve alongside rosemary potatoes or with a bleu cheese-topped salad for an extra-fancy affair. Recipe here. […]
