#ImprovCooking ~ Steak and Egg Hash
For February's #ImprovCookingChallenge we were given the ingredients of potatoes and eggs to combine in a recipe. As usual, the options were endless but I had breakfast on the brain! A hash sounded lovely, and add in some steak? Perfection!

I am on a potato and egg kick apparently - I just made this tasty skillet a couple of weeks ago, and now I whipped up this steak and egg skillet for breakfast!
If you're looking for a hearty, filling, 1-pan skillet dish this one certainly fits the bill. It's written very simply in terms of seasoning - just salt and pepper - and you could certainly play with that quite a bit if you so desired. Garlic, paprika, seasoned salt, etc. We served this alongside some ketchup and everyone left the breakfast table full and happy!

Steak and Egg Hash from Chowhound
2 TBS butter
1 1/2 - 2lbs sirloin steak, diced small
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 tsp salt, more to taste
1/2 tsp pepper, more to taste
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 lbs potatoes, peeled and diced small
4-5 large eggs
- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium to medium-high heat, melt 1 TBS butter in the skillet. Brown half of the steak, turning every 3 minutes or so until nicely browned on both sides, remove to a large bowl with a slotted spoon. Season the meat while cooking with salt and pepper.
- Melt the remaining butter in the skillet ad add the remaining uncooked steak and diced onion. Brown both about 6 minutes total, only stirring every 3 minutes or so to allow a good crust to form on the steak pieces. Season the meat and onions with salt and pepper while cooking.
- When onion is tender and steak is browned, scrape out into the bowl and set aside.
- Heat the oil in the skillet and add the potatoes, season with 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper, press gently into a single layer and turn heat down to medium-low / low. Allow to brown on all sides about 4-5 minutes per side. If potatoes are not cooking through quickly enough, add a lid at the end to help speed the process. Check for doneness using a fork, they should be easy to pierce and browned.
- When potatoes are done, add back the steak and onion mixture and any accumulated juices and gently stir to combine.
- Create pockets for the number of eggs you plan to use, and spray a little nonstick cooking spray on the exposed pan in each opening. Crack an egg into each, cover the pan with a lid and cook for about 5-6 minutes until your egg whites are set.
- Serve immediately!
