Bitoque, is a classic Portuguese dish that is simply a steak drizzled with a butter pan sauce and topped with a fried egg. This dish comes together quickly but is quite unique!

Ingredients

  • 8-12 oz steak new york, top sirloin or ribeye
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup wine
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cover the steak in a layer of plastic wrap. Tenderize the meat with a tenderizing hammer or back of a frying pan. Sprinkle the garlic over the steak and using the hammer press the garlic into the steak.
  • When your pan is very hot, between 400-500°F, salt and pepper the steak then place it in the pan. Cook time will vary depending on the thickness of the steak. For a thin steak cook for only 1 minute on each side.
  • After removing the steak from the pan, if using a carbon steel or cast iron pan turn off the heat because the pan will retain heat. To deglaze the pan, add the wine to the pan and use a spatula to scrap up an browned bits from the bottom of the pan. After the wine has reduced, add 2 tablespoons of butter. Let the butter melt into the sauce.
  • In a non-stick pan, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Keep the pan on medium to low heat. Fry the egg until the whites have set but the yolk is still runny.
  • To serve, plate your steak and then pour the pan sauce over the steak and top with the fried egg.
