Steak and Eggs

Steak and Eggs

If you follow the blog you know that I like to make most of my meals ahead of time. I call this the 5day method and have a series of breakfast and lunch options that I make on Sunday for the work week. For breakfast I always alternate between making a breakfast casserole or breakfast muffins. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love these recipes but they can get a bit old. Today I wanted to try something new so I pan fried some steak in my cast iron skillet and created steak and eggs for the week :)

Finished Steak and Eggs It turned out really well!  The cubes of steak were a perfect medium and it all fit in a nice, microwaveable container.Chopped OnionsThis recipe started by prepping the vegetables.  First I rough chopped the onions.Chopped PeppersThen I chopped up a green pepper.Frying Peppers and OnionsAfter getting the vegetables ready, heat up some bacon grease in your cast iron skillet. Get it nice and hot and then fry the onions until translucent. Steaks in Cast Iron SkilletAfter the vegetables are done, time to cook the steak!  I used Beef Chuck Shoulder which was on sale at BJ’s.Flipped Over SteaksFor this steak, I cooked it for three minutes on high and then flipped it and cooked it for three more minutes.  Keep in mind that you’ll be microwaving this when you eat it in the morning so you can err on the rare side.Chopped up SteakHere’s all the steak cut up and ready for distribution!Weighing SteakI knew how much steak I had to begin with so I divided it into 10 portions for the week.  It came out to a little less than 5 oz per serving. I like using my kitchen scale when making breakfast to make sure the portions are even.Eggs, Cream, and SpicesNow that the steak is done, its time to make the eggs.  I combined the eggs, cream, and spices into a large bowl and whisked it. Eggs in PanThen I used a large non stick skillet to scramble the eggs.  I start by letting them set a little bit for maybe a minute or two. Scrambling EggsThen once they start to set, I whisk them.Cheesy EggsOnce they are relatively close to done but still a little liquidy, I add in the cheese.Finished Scrambled EggsThen whisk some more.Finished Steak and EggsOverall it was a nice alternative to my standard breakfast casserole / muffin combo. I don’t think i could eat this for a month straight but its nice to have options.

  1. Aaaaahhh after going through many of your recipes, I think keto looks too good to be true! Gonna try this as a startup to my keto diet for sure!

  2. It really isn’t too good to be true. Think about all the foods you’re not eating, and that’s the difference. It is too good, but not too good to be true ;) To be honest your tastes change as well, as the year has gone by I pretty much crave and eat steak nearly every day, drink fats like butter ghee olive oil, and effortlessly maintain and feel full of energy. Highly recommended, even if you’re not trying to lose fat from your body.
