So as you may know, if you read yesterdays post, that my staycation started out on the wrong foot. Without Milk, butter, bread or eggs I had to create a different breakfast treat, “Brambora Breakfast Pancakes.” Well later that day I finally made it to the grocery store and did some shopping, but while I was planning dinner I was also thinking about my missed egg opportunity. After pondering it for a few minutes I decided to combine my dinner with a bit of breakfast.
Basically steak and eggs, but with a slight twist. The difference is that the egg goes on top of the steak Belgian style and I add a bit of horseradish spread. Now I have never been to Belgium and have no idea if this is what they do. Some of you may recall the old Lee Marvin war movie the “The Big Red One.” Well there is a scene where they are eating steak with eggs on top of them in some cafe or restaurant in belgium. Well someone makes the comment that it is Belgian style, just before they discover a German soldier dressed as an American soldier and the lady serving breakfast kills the infiltrator.
- Sirloin Steak
- 2 Tbl Horseradish Spread
- 2 Tsp Pepper
- 1 Egg
- 8 Button Mushrooms cut in half
- 1 Onion Cut into 8 wedges
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 1 Tbl Olive oil
- 1 Tsp Salt
Take your sliced button mushrooms and wedged onions and saute them in a pan with the 1/4 cup of butter and the salt. When the onions start to become translucent place the pan in 200 degree celsius oven for twenty minutes or until the onions and mushrooms begin to darken on the edges.
While the onions and mushrooms are in the oven take your steak and rub a table-spoon of horseradish spread on the top and bottom and then sprinkle the pepper on both sides.
Place your olive oil in a pan and pan fry the steak until desired temperature. When your steak is only 2-3 minutes away from being done, add your egg to the same pan and cook. I prefer sunny side up but whatever you choose will be fine. Remove the steak from the pan, place the egg on top, take your mushrooms and onions out of the oven and place on the plate with your starch of choice and there you have it. A perfect end to day one of my vacation, but instead of a cherry to top off the day it was an egg. Delightful!
