I love having breakfast for dinner. The Husband? Not so much. So it’s with recipes like Grilled Tuscan Steak with Fried Egg and Goat Cheese that I can get away with it. I caught an episode of Giada DeLaurentiis’ show, Everyday Italian, last week, and this was one of the recipes she made. I love melty cheese on steak, another thing The Husband doesn’t happen to like, but since he barely came up for air once his fork first hit the plate, I think it was a winner nonetheless.
A super simple dish to make, this works well for both weekdays and weekends alike, and it perfect for this ideal grilling weather we’ve been having lately. A few ingredients from the store that will keep you in the express lane, and half an hour in the kitchen, and you’ll be rewarded with tender juicy steak, a soft egg and the meltiness of the creamy goat cheese. Dig in!
Grilled Tuscan Steak with Fried Egg and Goat Cheese
Recipe courtesy of Giada DeLaurentiis
4 (8 ounce) rib-eye steaks
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons herbs de Provence
2 tablespoons, plus 2 teaspoons olive oil
2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Sprinkle both sides of each steak with the herbs de Provence. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Grill for about 6 to 8 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove the steaks from the heat and allow to rest. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat the remaining olive oil over medium-high heat. Crack the eggs directly into the pan, seasoning quickly with salt and pepper. Cook until egg whites are set, about 2 to 3 minutes.
To serve: Place the steaks on 4 serving plates. Carefully place the eggs on top of each steak. Sprinkle with the crumbled goat cheese. Garnish with the chopped parsley and serve.
Oh my! Steak. Eggs. Goat Cheese. You had me at steak!
I have a soft spot for any recipe that contains goat cheese.
