Skillet Steak with Fried Eggs
Makes 4 servings
  • 2 (1-inch-thick) New York strip steaks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 8 large eggs, divided
  1. Let steaks stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 415°.
  2. In a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, heat olive oil over high heat. Sprinkle both sides of steaks with salt, pepper, and paprika. Add steaks to skillet; cook for about 3 minutes per side, turning once. (This will be very smoky, so be sure to turn on your vent fan.)
  3. Bake until desired degree of doneness is reached, 8 to 10 minutes. Spoon pan sauce over steaks. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  4. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium heat. Crack 4 eggs into skillet, and fry, turning once, until desired degree of doneness is reached. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and remaining 4 eggs. Serve with steak.
