Cooking minced meat steak with egg:
Step 1: prepare the meat.
It is no secret that a truly delicious beef steak is obtained from beef or veal tenderloin of quick cooling, that is, not frozen, but sent to a special refrigerator in which the temperature is kept no more than +4 degrees Celsius. But if there are no options, you can take fresh meat, bring the selected piece home, rinse thoroughly under trickles of cold running water, dry it with paper kitchen towels, put it on a cutting board and use a sharp kitchen knife to remove it from the film, veins, as well as small bones, which are very often remain on a log house.
Step 2: prepare the minced meat.
Next, we cut the beef into small portions and pass them into a deep bowl through an electric or stationary meat grinder with a medium grid. Then we season the minced meat to taste with salt, black pepper, mix thoroughly and beat off. How to do it? Everything is simple! We roll the ground meat into a bowl, raise it slightly above the bowl by about 30 centimeters and throw it down. It is better to repeat this process 4-7 times, from this, the beef cloth will become softer, and the minced meat will be more viscous and will not disintegrate during heat treatment.
Step 3: fry and bake minced meat steak.
Now turn on the oven to preheat in 180 degrees celsius and put in a medium heat pan with about twenty milliliters of olive oil. While it is warming up, slightly moisten the palms in running water, take the forcemeat in them, form a rather large ball out of it, which we immediately lay out on a flat plate and squeeze the knife with a wide side of it 1-1.5 centimeters thick. We slightly trim its edges so that they are not even, we pry the resulting product and carefully transfer it to the bottom of a well-heated pan.
Roast beef steak on both sides 2-3 minutes. It is not worth it for a long time to overexpose it, we need to grasp, that is, the top layer of meat tissues is browned. As soon as this happens, using a kitchen spatula, transfer the meat product to a non-stick or heat-resistant baking dish with a thick bottom and move on.
We send the steak to the oven preheated to the desired temperature and bring it to the required degree of readiness. Basically it takes no more 5 minutesalthough if you like meat with blood, enough 2-3 minutes.
Step 4: prepare the fried eggs.
We don’t lose a minute while the beef is cooked, rinse the pan, dry it with paper towels, put it on medium heat again and pour in the remaining olive oil. After a few minutes, beat the chicken egg with the back of the knife, carefully so as not to damage the yolk, dip it in well-heated fat and season with salt, but only protein. We bring the fried eggs to full readiness, this process can take from 45 seconds to 2-3 minutes, it all depends on the choice of equipment and the degree of heating. As soon as the protein becomes dense, and the yolk begins to thicken along the rim, we transfer the white-yellow miracle to the plate and return to the steak.
Step 5: serve the minced meat steak with egg.
Minced beef steak with egg is served immediately after cooking hot as the main second. After baking, the browned round beef from ground beef is transferred to a large flat dish or portioned plate, a piece of butter is spread on top of it, and then with fried eggs, crushed with black ground pepper, and you can start tasting. As a complement to this yummy, they often offer light side dishes, for example, mashed potatoes, salads from fresh vegetables, steam rice, pasta, french fries, pickles, marinades and sauces based on cream, milk, tomatoes are also suitable. Cook with love and enjoy!
