These Steak and Chili Oil Eggs are a fun twist on classic chili oil eggs. Tender marinated and grilled ribeye steaks served alongside chili oil fried eggs. Does it get any better than that?!
Start with the Steak
First thing’s first, let’s marinate the steak, because the key to an ultra tender and flavorful steak is the marinade.
In a large bowl, mix together soy sauce, sesame oil, bourbon prime, brown sugar, black garlic sauce, Sriracha sauce, and bourbon. Make sure that the bowl is large enough to fit a steak. We’re using ribeye for this Steak and Chili Oil Eggs recipe.
So, add the ribeye into the marinade. Arrange the steak to make sure it’s fully submerged in the marinade, then place the bowl into the fridge. Let the meat marinate for a minimum of four hours. Ideally, let it marinate overnight. The longer it soaks in the marinade, the more flavorful it will be.
The more flavorful the steak is, the better the Steak and Chili Oil Eggs are. It’s science.
Make the Chili Oil for the Steak and Eggs
Okay, let’s get the chili oil ready to go. This oil might just be good enough to eat by the spoonful. I’m not kidding. The flavor is ridiculous.
It’s better with Steak and Chili Oil Eggs though, so be patient. We’re almost there.
To make your oil, preheat your grill to a medium heat of around 325ºF for direct cooking. Add a cast-iron skillet onto the grill along with the 1.5 cups of canola oil. Bring the oil to 225º-250ºF, then add in star anise, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, crushed garlic, and sichuan peppercorns. Let the aromatics fry in the oil for 30 minutes or so. Stir occasionally to mix all that flavor up.
Next, grab a mason jar and pour in the sichuan chili flakes. Hold a colander over the top of the jar, then pour the herb infused oil over the chili flakes. Stir, cover, then let the oil cool.
Prep the Steak and Eggs
We’re almost done! All that’s left is to cook the steak and fry the eggs for the Steak and Chili Oil Eggs.
So, kick the heat on the grill up to 350º-375ºF for direct cooking. Pull the steak out of the marinade and discard the marinade. Add the steak onto the hot grill, then allow it to cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 120ºF. Pull it off of the grill, then let it rest for 10 minutes.
Next, add a cast-iron skillet onto the hot grill. Allow that to heat up, then pour in a little bit of the prepared chili oil. Heat the oil up a bit, then drop the eggs in and fry them to your liking.

Pull the eggs out of the skillet and let them cool for just a couple of minutes.
Serve Your Steak and Chili Oil Eggs
Now, of course, it’s time to eat!
Slice into your steak, making sure to cut against the grain so it’s nice and tender. Serve the steak with the fried eggs and finish it all off with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and scallions.
