What cut of Steak to Use
Steak & Eggs is a recipe that is quick and simple. That means, choosing a steak that is thinner vs. thicker so that it cooks in a timely manner. A quick sear on both sides is all you need! That’s why Certified Piedmontese Flat Iron Steaks are perfect for this recipe! Thin, crazy tender and full of flavor.
Here’s all the delicious insights on these flat iron steaks from Certified Piedmontese:
“The flat iron, which comes from the flavorful chuck, is the second most tender cut on the animal behind only the tenderloin. The Certified Piedmontese flat iron steak is even more tender because of the natural properties of the Piedmontese breed. Even better, with only 2 grams of fat and 120 calories per serving, it’s also incredibly healthy—and unbelievably delicious. All Certified Piedmontese beef is verified all-natural and raised without hormones or antibiotics.”
What Sets Certified Piedmontese Beef Apart
Certified Piedmontese isn’t just any other beef brand that you may think. They have such a unique, healthy and appealing way that they operate. Let’s dive into the details on what sets Certified Piedmontese apart from the others:
- Their cows come from the rare Piedmontese breed of cattle from Italy – less than 1% of cattle in the United States are Piedmontese, but Certified Piedmontese has the largest herd of these cattle.
- The beef is naturally healthier, but does not sacrifice on flavor and tenderness.
- The beef has fewer calories, less fat and higher protein per ounce than beef from other breeds.
- The cattle are raised naturally without hormones, antibiotics or steroids – and on ranches here in the Midwest!
- You get the taste of real beef since it is naturally cleaner and leaner.
- Certified Piedmontese has a ranch-to-fork process that ensures traceability, environmental sustainability and humane handling.
Now, I don’t know about you guys, but COUNT ME IN! Not only are all of those amazing qualities of the Certified Piedmontese brand enough to get you on board, but tasting their product will have you hooked for life. I sure am!
Let’s Make Steak & Eggs
Firstly, grab a couple Certified Piedmontese Flat Iron Steaks and pat them dry. This will help get a nice, golden brown crust! Season both sides with salt and pepper.
Then, get a skillet nice and hot. Like piping hot! A good cast iron skillet works great for this. A quick sear on both sides of the steak to get them golden brown. About 130-140 degrees for a medium rare/medium steak. Set them aside to rest while you fry the eggs.
Next, turn the heat down to low and crack some eggs into the pan. Fry the eggs until they are cooked to your liking – sunny side up or fried on both sides.
Finally, thinly slice the steak, top with the fried egg and dig in! How much better can it get? PS: serve with some Simple Garlic Bread for the ultimate bite!
