Happy Thursday! I have some great news. First, a new recipe for you. Second, if you’re local (Albany/Clifton Park/Saratoga area) you can snag the Steak Tips from this recipe for a STEAL for the rest of the month because they are on sale ($10.99/lb), yippee! If you’re not local, that’s okay, you still win because this recipe is easy, delicious, and super filling.
I am a brunch fan through and through. I’d prefer to have brunch any day of the week and for any meal so don’t think of this hash as solely a “eat-only at” breakfast recipe. Instead, eat this any time of the day/week. The good news is it’s easy to make and only requires one skillet, making clean up as easy as the cooking. Wins all around!
If you’re in the Albany, Clifton Park, or Saratoga area, you may (or may not) be familiar with a butcher known as Primal. They have some of the friendliest staff and they’re knowledgeable to boot. I found these guys back when they were known as “The Meat House.” They have some of my favorite meats in town and some of the funniest shirts I’ve seen.
One of our go-to meat options for meal prep is the Primal House steak tips. We usually grill them up, but this go around I thought, what if we made a brunch type skillet hash?! What could go wrong? And with the steak tips only $10.99 per pound, how could I not try something new? Afterall, if I’m going to have them stockpiled in the fridge, I might as well have a few new recipes. The good news is you can freeze the steak tips so now would be the time to stock up, hint hint.
One Skillet Meals
As you’ve probably caught on to, I’m really into minimal dishes and cleaning up. I have a small kitchen and get overwhelmed by it easily. I LOVE to cook don’t get me wrong but when you have absolutely no where for dishes to go (counter space: ZERO), you need to become crafty with what you cook with. Enter skillet meals.
I LOVE my cast iron skillet, some days I wish it were bigger BUT the one I have is big enough for something like this. It’s nice to use a cast iron because it is robust, adds flavor, is oven safe, AND bonus points, it can help with iron levels in those that need a bit more in their diet.
Putting everything in one skillet not only allows you to minimize clean up BUT it can also meld flavors together, which, if you know me, is exactly what I like. The more stuff you can throw together the better. Frankly, you can get creative with skillet meals, add in any veggies you have on hand to spruce up the meal.
Protein Rich Breakfast
Speaking of sprucing up meals, a lot of us struggle to get enough protein in our breakfast. Well, let’s be honest, many of us struggle to eat enough protein period. Breakfast tends to be the BIGGEST area we can improve in the protein department. Instead of just grabbing cereal, plain oatmeal, or a banana, we should be looking to increase the amount of protein in our breakfast.
Why? Well because protein fills us ups & provides us with a good source of energy. Ever had a breakfast of an omelet or a steak hash? How long are you full for after? Hours I bet
What about a bowl of cereal? 45 minutes? An hour? It doesn’t last quite as long, the more protein we have, the longer we are satiated and the more our blood sugar is stabilized, which is a good thing. Today I’m giving you a breakfast option rich in protein AND taste. Win-win-win.
Primal Steak Tips Hash
Here it is, what you’ve all been waiting for (maybe? hopefully?) a protein-rich delicious breakfast (or anytime) meal made in one skillet. This Primal Steak Tips Hash is easy to make and even easier to eat. I LOVE the house marinade at Primal but they have a few other flavors that I think would taste just as good, it really just depends on what your taste-buds desire.
Feel free to add more spices to this mixture, once you cook everything through you’ll know if it needs more salt or pepper. I used the bacon from Primal as well, which, if I must say is quite tasty. Yes, a dietitian that eats meat & bacon. It’s all about balance and making sure to eat your veggies, your protein, AND enjoy the finer things in life that fill up your tastebuds & your soul aka meat & bacon 😀
Pro Tip: If you have un-marinated steak tips, I recommend using a steak marinade (like this one) and marinating for a few hours if not overnight before using!
