How to Make Steak Huevos Rancheros
Steak Huevos Rancheros (or in Spanish, Huevos Rancheros con Bistec) is a meat lovers dream.
The trick to this Mexican breakfast recipe is to get as many of the ingredients ready ahead of time.
• I used already marinated carne asada. You can marinate the meat on your own, but a lot of stores already sell prepared carne asada.
Another option is to buy a thin breakfast steak or a boneless ribeye steak. Add salt and pepper. Cook for desired doneness. That’s it.
There are a lot of flavors in the Steak Huevos Rancheros that the meat doesn’t really need to be marinated. However, if you have the time, go for it.
While the meat is cooking, warm up the tortillas in a separate skillet.
Traditional Huevos Rancheros involves lightly frying the tortilla.
I find this to be an unnecessary step, but if you want to fry the tortillas, you can do that to.
• Let the meat rest before slicing into small strips.
Make sure to tent the meat with aluminum foil to keep warm.
You have to let the meat rest, or all the juices will drain out.
I left the best for last: the eggs. For me, the runny egg on the top of the Steak Huevos Rancheros is what makes this dish!
These are Happy Egg – Organic Free-est of the Free Range™. I got them at my local Vons. Super easy to find. Just look for the staple yellow box.
Did I mention they’re organic? Pesticide, hormone and antibiotic free. Love that!
• Cook the egg sunny side up.
Do you see the color of the yolk? It’s beautifully deep amber orange. The yolk is rich and creamy tasting.
It’s very high in protein and contains vitamins B2, D, B6, B12, zinc, iron, and copper.
Eggs are great for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Time to assemble our Steak Huevos Rancheros.
• Add a thin layer of refried beans to the tortilla. The beans act as a glue for the rest of the ingredients.
• Then top with steak slices and salsa.
I used green salsa verde, but you can also use Mexican red salsa.
Top with a sunny side up Happy Egg. Sprinkle chopped cilantro and queso fresco.
Be sure to serve with extra salsa. You’ll have everyone saying, “Muy Bueno!”
Easy Easter Tablescape Idea:
I love the color of the Happy Egg shells. So much so that I decided to hard boil them and use them as a centerpiece. No dying necessary.
These are cilantro leaves. They create a nest for the eggs.
Cilantro is very inexpensive, adding a wonderful touch of green, and keeps in with a Mexican theme Easter decor.
• You can also add little flowers from your garden for Spring fun.
