Beef for breakfast, yes please! I think beef lends itself to both savory and sweet breakfast foods. Steak and eggs is a timeless pair, now introduce a little maple syrup to the party and we have a homerun dish! This is a very easy meal to make and its quite fun to watch the Dutch baby pancake puff up in your oven. This dish is perfect for breakfast or even dinner.
½ cup milk
½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon of kosher salt, plus additional salt for seasoning steak
Freshly cracked black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
6 baby Bella mushrooms, kept whole
6 Campari tomatoes, kept whole
1 Schaendorf top sirloin steak, flat cut
Tarragon leaves for garnish
Michigan maple syrup for serving
Preparation (Servings: 6-8):
1) Gather all equipment and ingredients. Place a 12-inch cast iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 450 degrees.
2) Heat the milk in the microwave for 20 seconds. In a medium bowl beat 2 eggs and slowly pour in the warmed milk. Once this is combined, slowly whisk in the flour and salt until the batter is smooth.
3) Meanwhile, place Bella mushrooms and Campari tomatoes on a baking sheet and rub with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Now remove the cast iron skillet (will be hot!) and add the butter to coat the inside. Add the Dutch baby batter to the skillet and place it back in the oven. At this time, also place the baking sheet of tomatoes and mushrooms into the oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the Dutch baby is browned and puffy in appearance.
4) While the Dutch baby is cooking and the vegetables are roasting, prepare to cook steak and eggs.
5) Season the sirloin steak with salt and pepper and cook in a preheated skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steak to desired doneness then rest for 3-5 minutes before slicing. Cook eggs on the stovetop to desired doneness. Over-easy is recommended but please note that consuming raw or undercooked meat, seafood, shellfish or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.
6) Remove the finished Dutch baby from the oven and top with sliced steak, eggs, roasted vegetables, and top with tarragon leaves and warm maple syrup. Enjoy!
