This Steak and Egg Huevos Rancheros recipe is the breakfast of champions. Made with a crisp tostada, black beans, steak, eggs, salsa, topped with cilantro and sriracha!


  • 4 Tostada shells
  • 1 lb. Boneless Strip Steak
  • 15 oz. black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 whole avocado
  • ½ lime
  • Pico de gallo or salsa
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4 eggs


  1. In a small sauce pot, add the black beans and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer. Using a potato smasher, smash the black beans a few times. Not completely refined, but spreadable. Turn heat to warm and set aside.
  2. Season the steak liberally on both sides with kosher salt and pepper. In a large heavy metal saute pan on medium high heat, place the steak in the hot pan and allow to cook untouched on one side for 3-5 minutes. Use tongs and flip on the other side for 3-5 minutes. Both sides should be browned and crusted. Remove from heat and place on cutting board. Allow the steak to rest for 5-7 minutes before cutting. Slice into strips and sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper if desired. You should get about 12 slices as I did if you are cutting widthwise.
  3. In a separate saute pan, on low to medium heat, spray the pan with non stick spray. Add the eggs in the pan to cook, yolk side up, for 5 minutes, longer if you want the egg yolk well done and cover with lid. Remove from pan once cooked to desired consistency on a plate.
  4. Preheat oven to 250 Degrees. Place the tostadas on a baking sheet and place in oven for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set on plates.
  5. Remove the avocado from the skin and remove the pit. Slice the avocado and squeeze with lime juice.
  6. Assemble the Huevos Rancheros by spreading the warm tostada with black beans, place 3-4 pieces of steak on top, add one of the fried eggs, top with pico de gallo or salsa, slices of avocado, and sprinkle with cilantro. For added flavor, add a dash of sriracha.
