Buttermilk Pancakes with Chamomile Cream and Gingered Strawberries.
Hey guys, meet your new go-to steak dinner.
I could not be more excited to share this recipe with you all, it’s one of the best steak recipes I’ve created! Typically, steak doesn’t need a recipe. Throw a little salt and pepper on a good cut of meat and grill it up. But sometimes you just want something a little more fanciful and fun, and when that time comes, this is your recipe.
This recipe is almost as simple as adding salt and pepper, but about a million times more flavorful and delicious. Plus you’ll get major bonus points from anyone you make it for, whether it’s your mom, your boyfriend, girlfriend, whomever…they’re going to love you that much more. This is just one of those recipes. The kind to always have in your back pocket for when you are in need of a quick, simple and easy, but yet super impressive meal.
What makes this steak so special? A few things, first the steak gets marinated in fresh rosemary, thyme, and garlic. Also known as the holy grail of Tuscan herbs…ok I totally made that up, but it seems fitting so I’m going with it! This combo of herbs and garlic on a steak is just perfection beyond words. I know it’s simple, but the added flavors make a huge difference and add so much to a simple grilled rib-eye steak.
But that’s not all, aside from the seasonings, which are important, there’s also a fried egg, marinated cherry tomatoes, and a drizzle of herb oil to finish off the steak right.
The fried egg on a steak is super traditional in Tuscany and when I read about this concept, I knew I had to recreate it. Again, when is an egg ever a bad idea? I always find it elevates a dish.
The marinated cherry tomatoes are not traditional, they were a last-minute addition, but they really completed the meal and added a nice pop of color to an otherwise colorless dish. I had a bunch of heirloom cherry tomatoes on hand and I loved the sound of the tomatoes with a Tuscan Style Steak, so I mixed up this recipe from last summer and served it over top the steak.
And you guys? It is SO good. All the flavors together, the rosemary and thyme on the steak, the oregano in the herb oil, the fried eggs, and the sweet, juicy cherry tomatoes.
I like to serve this steak with a side of crusty bread and a big green salad. You could also do some kind of potato, but I really like the bread for scooping up the extra cherry tomatoes and any of that drippy fried egg.
It’s best if you can marinate the steak overnight, but I’m not going to lie, I’ve made this a few times now and only marinated the steak fifteen minutes or so and it was still great. If you can plan ahead though, marinate the steak overnight. If not, don’t stress too much, just season up the steaks and start grilling.
If you’re not a fan of rib-eyes, you can use your favorite cut of meat, but the rib-eyes cook up awesome for this recipe…just sayin’.
My intention was for you guys to make this meal for Mother’s Day, but I’m kind of thinking it might just need to be a Wednesday night dinner?
After all, test runs are always a great idea, you know, before the real gig on Sunday, right?
Tuscan Steak dinner for the win!

PS. this recipe got five stars all-around!
Excellent, excellent, excellent! This recipe took simple grilled steak to a whole new level. As suggested, I marinated the steak over night. I used a NY Strip because I prefer a leaner cut. I found heirloom cherry tomatoes at local farm stand. The herbed oil, arugula and marinated cherry tomatoes were amazing. I left the egg out because that just isn’t my thing. Served with an ear of grilled corn as a side. Perfect summer dinner. Thank you Tieghan!
