You can also prep it ahead of time and take it to-go for lunch as you’re running out the door. The first step of this easy breakfast recipe is prepping the steak. We use a half-pound of skirt steak as our protein of choice. Pat the steak dry, then rub it with one tablespoon of avocado oil before sprinkling it with a teaspoon of steak seasoning. Heat some avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the steak to the pan. If you want your steak to be medium-rare, cook it for about three to four minutes per side. Transfer the steak to a plate and tent it with aluminum foil to keep it warm while you prepare the rest of your bowl ingredients.

Next, it’s time to cook up those veggies! Slice up one medium zucchini or yellow squash, then cut up six broccolini and eight small asparagus into two-inch pieces. Heat some more avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the veggies and cook for about three minutes, until crisp-tender. Transfer them to a plate while you cook your eggs. Add the remaining avocado oil to a pan over medium-low heat. Add four eggs and cook for about three to five minutes, stirring often until they are cooked to your preference. egg breakfast

Your main components are finished and there is one last step before you can assemble your bowl. Prepare a creamy dressing in your food processor or blender to coat all of your ingredients. Combine half of a ripe avocado with two tablespoons of butter, three tablespoons of freshly chopped Italian parsley, cayenne pepper (optional), salt and pepper. Blend this creamy, dreamy sauce until smooth, then put together your bowl. Slice the steak into strips and divide evenly among four serving bowls. Top with the cooked vegetables, kimchi, avocado, scallions and cilantro. Finish off with the eggs, then drizzle with the avocado sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste before digging into this hot and hearty breakfast bowl.
