This is a collaboration with Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. on behalf of the Beef Checkoff. The opinions and text are all mine.
Do you get tired of the same things over and over? I know I do. I am as guilty of falling into a cooking rut as anyone. It’s so easy to just cook the same things day after day. For me breakfast is generally a solitary thing. Hannah is off to school, Nathan is off to work and then finally it’s time for Mom to have coffee and eat. I like eggs for breakfast. It’s easy to make eggs, so that’s what I go to most days. But, what I have started to realize is there are other things that are easy to prepare and I enjoy just as much.
My favorite thing in the whole world to eat is steak. Man, do I love a good steak. It’s one of the easiest things to make and the most rewarding. There is nothing like cutting into a perfectly cooked, juicy steak. But can you do it quickly, in the morning? I am here to tell you, yes, you can! Beef is a protein powerhouse, and having that kind of nutrition first thing in the morning, gives me all-day strength, staying power, and the mental focus to get through my day.
The steak itself only takes 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare. Season the steak liberally with salt and pepper, place some butter in a hot pan and cook 3 min per side. All you have left is the egg. I like sunny side up eggs, you can do scrambled, over easy, whatever you like. The beauty of this recipe is that it’s completely customizable to your liking.
The nutrients in beef provide staying power to get you through your morning meetings and into lunch. I mean who hasn’t been Hangry?!!! When hangriness sets in it’s difficult to be your most productive self. Beef will help you be your very best self. Check out Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. to get more recipe ideas!
