Instructions

Poached Eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Use a 6 or 12 cup muffin tin. Place 1 tbsp of water in each cup of the tin. Crack an egg in the water in each cup of the muffin tin.
  2. Transfer the muffin tin to the oven to bake for 11 to 15 minutes. The time will depend on if you like your eggs runny or firm. 11 for runny, 15 for firm.
  3. Once cooked, remove the muffin tin from the oven. Scoop each poached egg out of the cups with a spoon and carefully transfer to a plate.

Flank Steak

  1. Heat a skillet on medium heat along with 1 tbsp of coconut oil.
  2. Season the steak with salt and pepper and add to the skillet.
  3. Cook 8 minutes on each side for medium. Cook longer for less pink.
  4. Remove from the skillet and slice into thin strips.

Hollandaise Sauce

  1. Add 3 egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, hot sauce and cayenne pepper to a mason jar.
  2. Heat ½ cup ghee over low heat.
  3. Add a little bit of the melted ghee to the mason jar and use an immersion blender on high speed to start blending together. Slowly pour the rest of the melted ghee in the jar as you are blending.
  4. Note: If you do not have an immersion blender, do all of the steps with a blender.
