Welcome back to another exciting installment of “You Are the Chef” on our men’s diet and health blog. Today, we’re tackling a timeless classic—steak and eggs. Not only is this dish a hearty and satisfying way to start the day, but it also packs a protein punch that can keep you fueled for hours. So grab your chef’s hat and let’s get cooking!

What You’ll Need


  • 1 8-10 oz. steak (sirloin or ribeye)
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • Optional: fresh herbs (like rosemary or thyme), garlic cloves


Cooking the Steak

Step 1: Prepare the Steak

Take the steak out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking to bring it to room temperature. This ensures even cooking. Season it generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

Step 2: Heat the Skillet

Place your skillet on medium-high heat. Once hot, add olive oil or butter to coat the bottom of the pan.

Step 3: Sear the Steak

Using tongs, carefully place the steak in the skillet. If you’re using fresh herbs and garlic, you can add them now for added flavor. Cook the steak for about 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Adjust the time according to your preference.

Step 4: Check the Temperature

Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the steak. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of around 135°F.

Step 5: Rest the Steak

Once the steak reaches your desired doneness, remove it from the skillet and let it rest on a cutting board for about 5 minutes.

Cooking the Eggs

Step 6: Lower the Heat

Reduce the heat to medium-low. If the skillet looks dry, add a bit more olive oil or butter.

Step 7: Crack the Eggs

Crack your eggs into a small bowl, being careful not to break the yolk.

Step 8: Cook the Eggs

Carefully slide the eggs into the skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes for sunny-side-up, longer if you prefer your yolks more set.

Assembling the Dish

Step 9: Slice the Steak

After resting, slice your steak against the grain into bite-sized pieces.

Step 10: Serve

Place the steak slices on a plate and gently transfer the cooked eggs beside them. Season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper, if needed.


Congratulations, chef! You’ve just prepared a delicious and protein-packed steak and eggs breakfast. Perfect for a weekend treat or a special occasion, this dish is a testament to the beauty of simple, quality ingredients. Enjoy your meal!
