Texas Benedict

My husband’s favorite breakfast dish of all time is the classic Eggs Benedict…Now, I can make a mean version of this (I’ll post that another time) but I wanted something different today.  This follows the lines of your traditional Benedict, but I gave it a Southern, Tex-Mex flair!

I used homemade Buttermilk Biscuits (instead of an English muffin), marinated flank steak (instead of ham), a fried egg (instead of poached) and a spicy and creamy Serrano sauce (instead of hollandaise).  Ridiculous I tell ya!

So if you ever want change up breakfast a little bit, I suggest this one.  Hell, eat it for dinner even!

The Starting Lineup

Marinade

  • 2 cups of orange juice
  • 4 limes, juiced
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1/4 cup EVOO
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 2 tsp Adobo seasoning
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, stems and all roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

So for this recipe, I actually started with my spicy Spicy Serrano Sauce.  I poured my finished product into a mason jar and kept in the refrigerator until time to eat. Let those flavors meld together and really heat up! *i actually ended up using 5 serranos in this blend and damn was it spicy!  😍👌

Next, mix up all ingredients ofyour marinade in a bowl.  Just throw everything in together and whisk up!

In a large freezer bag, place in your cut of steak.  Pour that marinade mix straight into bag over your meat.  Tightly seal and put the bag on a dish (in case there’s any leakage).

 Transfer your marinating steak back into the refrigerator and let marinate for 2-4 hours.  You don’t want it to marinate for too long or the acids and vinegar can break down the meat too much.

When the meat has about an hour left of marinating, I start the Buttermilk Biscuits.

*Also, when you are starting your biscuits, remove your steak from fridge and allow to sit in marinade on your counter till ready to cook.  You want your steak to come to temp for even cooking.  So this will be all ready to cook once you’ve finished preparing and cooking your biscuits!

In a skillet, heat up a tbsp of oil (canola, etc) to med-high and lay that steak in!  Everyone varies how they prefer their steak doneness, I typically cook one side about 4-5 minutes and the other for 3 minutes for a pink/red center.

  

Remove steak from pan and place on a dish, tented with foil.  Let rest for at least 10minutes.  Now get out your garnishes for the finished product! 


If needed, just slightly wipe out your pan and add a tbsp of butter.  Fry up them eggs! 


All done!  Everything is cooked and you’re ready to assemble!!  On a plate first place down 2-3 biscuits.  Layer a few strips of your steak on them followed by a fried egg.  Lastly, pour on a good amount of that spicy Serrano sauce and top with cilantro and a couple more peppers!
