Steak and Eggs Over Arugula

I'm still on my poached eggs kick!  Tonight for dinner I was able to use up the last of the sirloin steak and arugula that was in the fridge.  This is a quick and easy dish that is perfect for those nights you only need to cook for one.

1/2 lb sirloin steak
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp dry minced onions
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 C arugula
2 eggs
1 tsp vinegar
1/2 C shredded Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cut sirloin steak into bite size pieces.  
  2. Add minced garlic, dry minced onions, olive oil, and Worcestershire sauce to a Ziploc bag.  
  3. Add steak to Ziploc bag and massage to marinate.  
  4. Allow steak to marinate in Ziploc bag at room temperature for 30 minutes.  
  5. Heat a medium sized skillet over medium high.  
  6. Pour entire contents of Ziploc bag into skillet and cook until steak pieces have browned on all sides.  
  7. Remove steak from skillet and set aside on a paper towel to drain.  Discard excess cooking liquid.  
  8. Fill a medium sized saucepan half full of water and add vinegar.  
  9. Heat water and vinegar mixture to a slow simmer.  
  10. Crack eggs into a small bowl, being careful not to break the yolks.  
  11. Gently slide eggs from the bowl into the hot water.  
  12. Cook eggs for 4 minutes.  After 4 minutes gently drain poached eggs into a colander.  
  13. Place arugula on a plate and top with cooked steak.  
  14. Sprinkle shredded Parmesan over top of steak.  
  15. Gently slide eggs out of colander and layer on top of steak and cheese.  
  16. Sprinkle top of eggs with salt and black pepper to taste.  
  17. Serve with hot sauce if desired.  Enjoy!  
  • If you buy your steak at the grocery store, you can ask the butcher to slice it thin.  Desired thickness is about 1/2 inch for this recipe.  If you don't want to do that, just cut the pieces as thin as possible with a sharp knife or kitchen shears.  
  • Any time you poach eggs you don't want the water to get too hot.  If you get a rolling boil going, the eggs will break.  A slow simmer means that small bubbles are forming on the bottom of the pot.  This water will be hot enough to give you a perfect poach.  
  • Timing for poached eggs will vary slightly based on how hot your water is, what size your eggs are, and how done you like your yolks.  It took me a few tries to get it right, and I'm sure you'll have the same experience.  4 minutes is an approximate cooking time.
