Brunch – Steak and Eggs on Garlic Naan

August 20, 2016

Some mornings, I wake up and I’m starving but I’m just tired of the regular breakfast foods. I love steak and eggs as much as the next guy, but sometimes I want something a little different. Those days, I sort of sit there and contemplate not eating breakfast because I can’t imagine what I want to eat. But sometimes I get lucky and I get inspired!

So this morning, when I got home from taking Marbel to the park, I just couldn’t get myself to make anything. As I ran a few errands I all of a sudden became inspired. Maryam makes this amazing garlic bread that I love and I started to crave it, but needed to figure out how to make it with a breakfast vibe. So when I got done running my errands, I stopped by the grocery store and let myself wander and pick out things I wanted… naan sounds really good, some steak never hurt anyone, spinach would go really well with that… and before I knew it, my brunch recipe was planted in my head and I was ready to roll.

Steak and Eggs on Garlic Naan


Yield Amount: 2 servings Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


Ingredients

2 Frozen naans (thawed in the microwave for 30 seconds)
2 tbsp Butter (Irish butter is best)
1/4 Jalapeno (diced)
2 tbsp Cilantro (minced)
2 cloves Garlic (minced)
3/4 lb Beef sirloin
1/4 cup Baby spinach
2 Eggs
Paprika to taste
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
  2. In a small skillet, melt the butter over medium heat
  3. Once the butter has mostly melted add all of the garlic and about 95% of the jalapeno and cilantro and stir until the butter is completely melted
  4. Add salt, pepper, and paprika to taste and leave butter over medium-low heat for 2 minutes
  5. Line a baking tray with wax paper or aluminum foil (if using foil, use a non-stick spray or thin coat of EVOO)
  6. Place naans on tray and, using a spoon, pour the spread over both naans. Use a brush to coat evenly
  7. Put a little bit of salt and pepper on beef sirloin and pan sear on medium heat, 3-4 minutes on both sides (for all my friends who, like me, like their meat fully cooked, trust me on the timings)
  8. Cut beef into slices and lay out on naans, leaving a small (fully enclosed) hole in the middle
  9. Rip baby spinach by hand and lay over the beef
  10. Crack an egg onto each of the naans, in the middle of the steak
  11. Add remaining jalapeno and cilantro on eggs, with a little salt and pepper to taste
  12. Bake for 10-12 minutes
  13. Remove from oven, serve hot with your favorite hot sauce
