STEAK & EGG PORTABELLO CUPS
PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 28-33 MINUTES
MAKES: 4 SERVINGS
1 T olive oil
½ lb round steak, thinly sliced
½ t salt
¼ t pepper
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
4 portabello mushrooms
¼ cup crumbled blue cheese (or if blue cheese isn’t your thing, try ¼ cup crumbled feta)
1. Add olive oil, steak, salt, pepper, and garlic to a medium skillet. Cook over medium heat until browned; remove from heat and set aside.
2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
3. Carefully remove stems and gills from mushrooms and place cap side down in a 9” x 13” casserole dish.
4. Evenly divide cheese and steak between mushrooms, creating a nest with the steak to hold the egg. Crack an egg inside each mushroom. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on preferred doneness.
