Food Network Recipe For Grilled Steak and Eggs With Beer and Molasses

Sunday BBQ: Grilled Steak and Eggs

I'm not much of a steak and eggs girl in the morning, but dinner is a different story entirely. Earlier this week, I laid eyes on this recipe for grilled steak and eggs, and tonight I'm going to live out my dream of making this hearty, guy-friendly supper. New York Strip and runny eggs are both wonderful alone, but when they come together with a tangy, smoky barbecue sauce, the sum is greater than all its parts.

When I serve this, I'll also be sure to have some chunks of crusty bread handy to scoop up all the sauce, and a salad for some much-needed crunch. See the recipe when you read more.

Recipe for Grilled Steak and Eggs With Beer and Molasses


  1. Sauce:
    1-1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter
    1/2 medium onion, finely diced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup molasses
    1/2 cup apple cider
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 cup lager-style beer
    1-1/2 teaspoons yellow mustard
    2 teaspoons lemon juice
    1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    1-1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
    1-1/2 teaspoons paprika
  1. Steak and eggs:
    2 1-pound strip steaks (1/2 inch thick)
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    4 grilled eggs (recipe below)


  1. Make the sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and garlic and saute until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients; bring to a boil, then simmer until the sauce is reduced to 2 cups, about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat a grill to medium-high. Season the steaks with salt and pepper and rub with the oil. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  3. Make the grilled eggs: Place a cast-iron skillet on the grill; add butter, oil or bacon drippings. Crack in eggs and season to taste (the Neelys use a blend of paprika, sugar and onion powder, plus salt and pepper). Cook until the edges are crisp but the yolks are still runny, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Slice steak and serve with the beer-molasses sauce and the grilled eggs.

Serves 4.
