Corned beef is the classic go-to meat for hash, but steak is a no-brainer for an egg accompaniment. Just crack a few eggs, nestle them in this hash, and breakfast is served. We recommend making a pitcher of our Bloody Mary recipe to accompany this hearty meal.
- Yield: 4 servings
- Difficulty: Easy
- Total: 30 mins
- Active: 30 mins
- 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/4 stick)
- 2 (10-ounce, 3/4-inch-thick) boneless New York steaks, trimmed of fat and cut into medium dice
- 1 pound medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into medium dice
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
- 1/2 medium yellow onion, medium dice
- 4 large eggs
- Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick frying pan with a tightfitting lid over medium-high heat until oil is shimmering and butter is melted. Add half of the steak, season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and cook, stirring rarely, until steak is browned and crusty, about 3 minutes. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Repeat with remaining steak.
- Add potatoes and 1 teaspoon kosher salt to the pan, season with freshly ground black pepper, and stir to coat. Pat potatoes down into a single layer with a spatula, reduce the heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden brown on the bottom, about 4 to 5 minutes.
- Add onion and stir to combine. Cook, stirring rarely, until potatoes are golden brown all over and just give way when pierced with a knife and onion is just softened, about 5 minutes.
- Add reserved steak and any accumulated juices to potato-onion mixture and stir to combine. Create 4 indentations, crack 1 egg into each indentation, and season eggs with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover the pan and cook until egg whites are set and yolks have reached desired doneness.
