Servings: 4 | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • ¾ cup (180 ml) finely chopped fresh parsley
  • ⅓ cup (75 ml) olive oil
  • ¼ cup (125 ml) red wine vinegar
  • 1 red Thai chili, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp (2 ml) kosher salt
  • 8 oz (250 g) beef top sirloin steak
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) each kosher salt and pepper, divided
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
  • 10 cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cups (500 ml) frozen mixed sliced peppers and onion blend
  • 2 cups (500 ml) frozen diced hash brown potatoes
  • 4 eggs


  1. Chimichurri: In a small bowl, combine parsley, oil, vinegar, chili, garlic and salt. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Season steak all over with ½ tsp each of salt and pepper. Cook steak, uncovered, turning periodically until golden brown; about 4-5 minutes for medium rare. Remove to a board to let rest.
  3. In the same skillet, add oil, mushrooms, peppers and onion blend, potatoes and remaining ½ tsp each of salt and pepper. Sauté for 2-3 minutes or until potatoes are warmed through.
  4. Make 4 shallow wells and add an egg into each well. Reduce heat to medium-low and let cook uncovered until egg whites have set, about 4 minutes.
  5. Slice steak and arrange on skillet. Spoon chimichurri over steak and eggs to serve.

Tip: In place of the frozen peppers and onions, you can use 1 bell pepper (any colour) cut lengthwise into thin strips and half a small onion, sliced. Sauté peppers and onions with mushrooms for 2 minutes before adding the potatoes, then proceed as directed.
