Steak for breakfast? Yeah, that’s something I can get behind. This Steak and Eggs with Charred Scallion Chimichurri is made with juicy steak, tender chunks of potato, and fluffy scrambled eggs all topped off with homemade charred scallion chimichurri. 


Enjoy this delicious meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or all three! I wouldn’t blame you!


Prep the Steak and Potatoes for Steak and Eggs with Charred Scallion Chimichurri


We’ll kick this recipe off with 3-4 steaks. I prefer to use either NY strips or ribeyes, but other types will work as well. Just use whatever works best for you! 


First, prep the steaks by lathering them thoroughly with a layer of canola oil. Season each generously with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.


Next, prep the potatoes, because steak and eggs with charred scallion chimichurri are even better with potatoes. Trust me. Chop the potato of your choice into cubes and then place the cubes into a bowl. Drizzle them with oil, and toss with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.

Let’s Get Cooking!


Next, we’ll cook our steaks. Preheat your fire for direct cooking at a medium-high heat of around 375ºF. Add the seasoned steaks onto the grill and cook them over the flames for 3-3.5 minutes per side. Pull them off of the grill when they reach an internal temperature of 120ºF, then allow them to rest for 15 minutes to give the juices time to settle into the meat. Remember, as with any other recipe, we don’t want to slice into them too soon or we’ll lose all that flavor and moisture.


Meanwhile, char the scallions on the grill. To do so, simply add them to the grill and let them cook for 2-3 minutes or until they’re cooked to your liking. Next, pull them off and set them aside while you prep the rest of your Steak and Eggs with Charred Scallion Chimichurri.

Now we’ll circle back to our potatoes. First, add a cast-iron skillet to the grill and preheat it with a drizzle of canola oil over the fires. Next, add the potato chunks and cook them for roughly 15 minutes or until softened. Stir frequently so they don’t burn!

Next up, the eggs! You can cook them right in the skillet with the potatoes. Simply push the potatoes off to one side, add butter and oil to the skillet, and heat the eggs until they’re cooked to your liking.

Make Charred Scallion Chimichurri for Your Steak and Eggs


Since you’ve already charred the scallions, this charred scallion chimichurri really just requires you to toss everything together!


Chop the root bulb off of the charred scallions, slice them into thin pieces, then add them to a bowl with cilantro, diced red onions, minced garlic, red wine vinegar, red chili flakes, olive oil, and salt.


Mix together to get it all nice and combined, then set aside.
