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.
