Egg-topped Steak with Beer and Onion Sauce

Lentswe Bhengu

Chef Lenny B knows the power of a good steak. He also knows that adding beer and a fried egg takes it up a notch. Here’s how to prepare one.

Is there a meal more iconic than a perfectly cooked steak? Or a fried egg? Put them together, add beer, and you’ve got a meal that will recharge you while satisfying your meat craving. 

 

A decent 550 gram cut of rump steak contains around 120g of protein. With the fried egg coming in at an extra 14 grams, this meal provides the body with essential vitamins and minerals and can give you an energy boost. After you’ve digested it all, that is!

Egg-topped Steak with Beer and Onion Sauce 

Sometimes a sizeable steak is the only thing that will hit the spot. And you don’t need to go to a restaurant to get your fix. Here’s a recipe for a juicy steak complete with a fried egg and beer and onion sauce that’s as easy to prepare as it is to eat.

 

Ingredients 

  • Olive oil 
  • 5 onions, 3 sliced and 2 halved 
  • 4 Tbsp brown sugar 
  • 3 garlic cloves, halved 
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 red chilli pepper
  • 2 sprigs thyme, finely chopped 
  • 1 sprig rosemary, finely chopped
  • 750ml Castle Free 
  • 750ml beef or vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper, to taste 
  • 550g rump steak 
  • 1 egg
  • Watercress, to garnish

How to Make it

1. In a large, wide frying pan over medium heat, add olive oil and bring to the heat.  

 

2. Sauté the sliced onions, sugar, one teaspoon of garlic powder, chilli pepper and fresh herbs until the onions are translucent. Add a touch of water if needed. Season to taste. 

 

3. Add the beer, stock and halved onions to the pan. Reduce liquids by half or until a sauce-like consistency is reached. The halved onions should be soft and golden brown in colour. 

 

4. Season your steak with salt, pepper and the remaining garlic powder. 

 

5. In a separate pan over high heat, fry the steak to your liking and then set aside. 

 

6. Prepare your fried egg in a clean pan with some olive oil. Place it on the steak, top with sauce, season to taste and serve with some watercress, a cold beer and sides.

Simple Sides

Steak can be enjoyed with almost anything on the side. Some of my favourites include:

  • Roast vegetables
