Try this delicious Southwest Steak and Eggs Brunch Bake to kickstart your day. Boasting juicy steak, eggs and robust southwest flavors, this is the perfect meal to start a day of tailgating or home-gating! This recipe is sponsored by the Ohio Beef Council. All ideas and opinions shared are my own.
Football Saturdays are a little different around here than they used to be since we have a 9+ month old baby. We haven’t done any tailgating, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t cheering on our Buckeyes from home… home-gating is the new tailgating!
All of our games so far this year have been early, so I got to thinking about yummy home-gating brunch ideas and finally came up with this Southwest Style Steak and Eggs Brunch Bake. You guys! It is sooooo good!
Southwest Steak and Eggs Brunch Bake
You need protein for brunch whether you’re going to root on your favorite team at home or venture down to a football game (or you’re taking care of a 9 month old all day haha!) This Southwest Steak and Eggs skillet is chock full of it. Did you know that just one 3 oz. cooked serving of beef has 25 grams of protein?! That serving size also provides 10 essential nutrients including iron, zinc and B vitamins. So, yeah… it’s safe to say this Southwest style steak and eggs brunch will help you power through even the longest day of tailgating or homegating!
And oh! The taste! The juicy steak is the star and the robust southwest flavors make a lovely supporting cast. Don’t forget to pick up a nice loaf of crusty bread for dipping into the egg and to clean up every.last.bite of deliciousness in that bowl. No one’s judging, I promise.
Southwest Steak and Eggs Brunch Bake
- 1 lb. beef strip steaks at least 1 ¼" thick
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 - 28 oz can fire roasted crushed tomatoes
- 1 medium yellow onion diced
- 1 - 15 oz can black beans drained and rinsed
- 1 - 15 oz can sweet corn drained and rinsed
- 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
- ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 - 20 oz package shredded hash browns
- 5 large eggs
- Green onion
- Sea salt
- Onion powder
- Heat oven to 400 º F.
- Remove steaks from the fridge, pat dry and season both sides liberally with sea salt, pepper and onion powder. Allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- In a dutch oven or deep oven-safe pan, heat diced onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil until onions are soft and translucent. Add in tomatoes, black beans, corn, taco seasoning and crushed red pepper flakes. Combine and simmer over medium heat.
- Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a cast iron skillet until screaming hot (just before it starts to smoke). Add steaks to the skillet and sear on each side for 2 - 3 minutes. Remove from heat once a nice crust has formed on both sides and the internal temperature reads 130º F if you like your steak medium rare (it will cook further at rest and in the oven in the steak and eggs bake). Allow steaks to rest for 10 minutes, then slice in 1" strips across the grain and cut the strips into 1" cubes.
- Prepare the hash browns in the steak skillet according to package directions while the steaks rest.
- Remove the dutch oven from heat and stir in the steak and crispy hash browns. Create little pools for the eggs and crack 5 eggs on top. Tip: Crack the eggs into small bowls first so that you don't end up with a broken egg or shells.
- Place dutch oven in the oven and bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until eggs reach desired consistency.
- Top with green onion and serve with crusty bread.

Shop local is a huge movement out there, but I’m all about eating local, too. There are 17,000 beef farming families in Ohio. I love knowing where my food is coming from and also supporting real families, with real stories like the family in this video.
Pretty cool, right?
