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 Beef, against 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.
- Place whole egg in its shell in a preheated Sous Vide Supreme at 144°F (62.5°C). Cook for 1 hour.
- While egg is cooking, place sirloin steak and 1 tbs butter in a vacuum bag, season with salt and pepper and seal. Refrigerate.
- 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.
- Place sirloin in sous vide and cook for 1-2 hours.
- 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.
- Add remaining butter to broccolini and sauté another 10-15 minutes or until broccolini is fork tender. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Heat pan on medium high and remove sirloin and egg from sous vide.
- Sear steak on both sides for 30-45 second each side and remove from pan.
- Slice steak across the grain and serve with broccolini and egg.
- Garnish with about 1 tsp chopped fresh dill and enjoy
