Yield: 4 servings
- 4 tenderloin steaks, 1/2 inch thick
- 4 English muffins, toasted and buttered
- 4 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- Hollandaise Sauce (recipe included)
- 3 large egg yolks
- 1-1/2 tablespoons cold water
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 2-3 teaspoons lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
- Tabasco to taste
Instructions:In nonstick skillet, over medium high heat, pan-fry steaks until internal temperature reads 140°F for medium rare or to desired doneness. Remove from heat, keep warm.
To make Hollandaise Sauce: Whisk egg yolks until light and frothy. Pour into top of double boiler over gently simmering water and continue to whisk until eggs are thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Do not let eggs get too hot. Once thickened, remove from heat. Continue to whisk and slowly add melted butter, lemon juice, Tabasco, salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches of water until almost boiling. Add vinegar.
Gently crack eggs into four small cups and slide into simmering water. Adjust heat to keep water just below a simmer. Cook until the whites of the eggs are set, but the centers are still soft. Remove eggs with slotted spoon.
To assemble: Top each muffin with tenderloin and a poached egg. Pour warm sauce over top. Serve immediately.
