Buttery Rich Keto Steak and Eggs Over Asparagus -

I’m always excited to have brunch, and I almost always gravitate towards the savory dishes, and not so much the sweet. This dish of Steak and Eggs Over Asparagus is everything my brunch dreams are made of!

When it comes to uncomplicated dishes, you really can’t get any easier than a grilled steak seasoned simply with salt and pepper over a bed of fresh asparagus (my favorite springtime vegetable), all topped with a farm-fresh fried egg (runny yolk optional, but highly advised).

I’ve not always been a fan of the runny yolk. However, over the past few years, I’ve converted my way of thinking and now I consider the runny yolk a golden sauce that enhances the flavor of everything it comes in contact with.

And so it goes with this Buttery Rich Keto Steak and Eggs Over Asparagus dish. Consider the runny yolk the “buttery rich” part of the recipe. Especially when it marries with the beefy goodness of the steak and delicious and nutritious asparagus underneath. YUM!!

This recipe for Buttery Rich Keto Steak and Eggs over Asparagus can either be made on an outdoor grill or on an indoor grill pan. Since we’re still not sure in Illinois if we’re going to start spring, or if we’ll be stuck in winter for the rest of our lives, I made mine on an indoor grill pan.

With a dish as uncomplicated as Buttery Rich Keto Steak and Eggs over Asparagus, it’s imperative that you use the best ingredients you can. For this dish, you need your favorite variety of steaks, I used strip steaks, fresh eggs (I prefer Eggland’s Best), fresh asparagus (I prefer Michigan asparagus), good-quality extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Brush both sides of the steaks with olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill the steaks to your desired doneness and keep warm. In the same pan, add the asparagus with a touch more olive oil. Season the asparagus with salt and pepper, and grill them approximately 3-4 minutes, or until just tender. Plate the asparagus. Keep warm.

Cook eggs in olive oil to your desired doneness, and season with salt and pepper. Top the prepared asparagus with the prepared steak and top the steak with the egg. Serve hot.
