The ultimate Mexican steak and eggs! In Mexico, many times a plate served with two different colored salsas is referred to as divorced! Lol! Huevos(Eggs) Divorciados(Divorced). Sam’s Fresh Salsa provides the two homestyle fresh salsa’s today. This is my second entry to the Sam’s Fresh Salsa Recipe Challenge. The winners will be picked next month! Find Sam’s Fresh Salsa on Facebook and Instagram too!
Are You Red Or Green?
When it comes to salsa, do you prefer red or green salsa? For me, it depends on the dish, but I confess that I typically add both to my dishes! I can’t help it! I love salsa! My dream is to write a salsa cookbook one day soon! Both of these style salsa’s are perfect for eggs, chips n salsa, tacos, nachos, enchiladas and more.
Recipes You Can Feel Good About!
Sam’s Fresh Salsa’s are prepared fresh with minimal ingredients and can be found in the refrigerator section of Safeway, ShopRite and Acme stores. If your local market does not carry it, ask for it! We are all probably guilty of having those jars of salsa in the refrigerator for months on end. They never expire! Lol! Why? Because they are loaded with preservatives.
So Many Recipes, So Little Time!
You are probably asking yourself, “What other recipes can I use Sam’s Fresh Salsa for?” Two recipes that I love and that my followers really enjoy are tinga de pollo and pork chile verde. The Cantina Style Salsa can be blended with chipotles in adobo for a delicious tinga. Fresh Salsa Verde is perfect for pork chile verde or blend with avocados for a quick tomatillo avocado salsa!
What Do You Think When You Here Steak And Eggs?
When I hear steak and eggs, I imagine a big lumberjack plate with a thick caveman size steak and six eggs! Lol! It is common practice in some regions of Mexico to serve thin cuts of steak on the plate. Look for skirt steak, top round, ribeye or even chuck steaks that come sliced thin. They are quick cooking and with a ready made fresh salsa, tacos are sure to happen!
Mexican Steak And Eggs-Huevos Divorciados
- extra large skillet
- 2 smaller skillets
- Avocado or olive oil
- 1/2 lb extra thin skirt steak or top round 4 pieces
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 med white onion sliced into thin strips
- 1 large jalapeño or 2 serrano peppers sliced thin
- 12 oz Sam's Fresh Salsa Verde
- 12 oz Sams' Fresh Cantina-Style Salsa
- 4 corn tortillas
- 4 large eggs
- cilantro chopped fine
- This recipe will require you to multi task! Preheat a large skillet to medium/high heat. Season the skirt steak lightly with salt and pepper on both sides. Once hot, drizzle in a little oil. Add the steaks. Sear steaks for 2-3 minutes per side. Remove steaks and reserve covered.
- On another burner at medium heat, place the large skillet. Add 1/4 cup of oil. After a few minutes, place the four corn tortillas on oil. The tortillas will cook for 8-10 minutes, turning as needed until they get crispy. Once crispy, carefully crack one egg over each tortilla. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and turn heat to low.
- At the point where you are crisping up the tortillas, heat to smaller skillets to medium heat. To each skillet drizzle in some oil. After one minute, to each one add half of onion and jalapeños. Season lightly with salt and pepper and saute for 3 minutes.
- To one skillet pour in all of the Salsa Verde. To the other skillet with onions and jalapeño pour in all of the Cantina Style Salsa. Stir well to combine. If the salsa seems too thick, pour in a little chicken broth or water. Taste for salt as it cook for the next 7-8 minutes.
- Once the eggs are set to your liking, I like my eggs yolks a little runny, then you can build your plate! Quickly warm the steaks by placing them on one side of eggs in skillet. When ready, add two tortillas with eggs on the plate. Place 2 pieces of thin arrachera in between the eggs. To one eggs spoon on a generous amount of Sam's Salsa Verde. To the other egg spoon on Sam's Cantina Style Salsa.
- Add some refried beans with shredded cheese and Mexican rice to each plate. This meal can be enjoyed any time of the day, but it's especially popular for brunch!
