I'm Christi, a Marketing & Branding Exec and Insta Chef. Here's the deal, I lost 90lbs, but I love food and eating, so I started cooking to reinvent my favorites into healthier alternatives. It's usually healthy, generally paleo-ish, sometimes Whole30. I will never be able to live without good cheese!

Steak & Egg Salad With Roasted Cherries

For The Cherries:
2 Cups Cherries, pitted and sliced in half
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

For The Steak:
Kosher Salt & Pepper
12 oz. NY Strip Steak, room temp
1 tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tbsp. Brown Butter Ghee (I used @tinstar)

4 Large Eggs, room temp
1 tbsp. Distilled White Vinegar
1 tbsp. Sea Salt

Salt & Pepper

Roast It:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Toss your cherries in olive oil & season with salt & pepper
  4. Bake for about 12 min

Sear It:

  1. Preheat your oven to 450° F
  2. Season your steaks! Coat evenly in kosher salt & pepper
  3. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat.
  4. Add olive oil to pan and swirl to coat the pan.
  5. Once hot, add your steak to the pan
  6.  Sear for 3 minutes, flipping half way through
  7. Top steak with brown butter ghee and place pan in oven for 3-5 minutes depending on how rare you like your steaks*
  8. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes
  9. Thinly slice steak

Poach It: (I use the method from The Broad Fork, it’s everything!)

  1. Put 2 quarts of cold water & distilled white vinegar in your poaching pot & start to bring it to a boil
  2. Crack your eggs into individual ramekins
  3. Once boiled, add 1 tbsp. sea salt to your water
  4. Reduce your heat so your water is trembling, but not boiling
  5. Swirl the water a few times with a large spoon
  6. While the water is still swirling, gently pour each egg into the water individually
  7. Cook 4 min for a soft yolk
  8. Spoon out the eggs with a slatted spoon

Bring everything together except for the eggs, and drizzle with a little balsamic. Add eggs to the bowl!
