Spicy Crushed Peas, Steak & Egg

A quick and healthy mid-week meal.

Spicy Crushed Peas, Steak & Egg
Serves 2

400g steak of your choice (we used beef fillet)
2 cups frozen baby peas
2 large free range eggs
Olive oil
2 fresh green chillies, sliced (remove the seeds for a less spicy version)
2 t fresh garlic, chopped
Salt & black pepper
Optional: Crispy fried onion and bacon bits

Grill the meat to your liking, cover with foil and allow to rest.
Meanwhile, bring the peas to the boil. Once they are soft but still bright green and firm (boil them for about 3 minutes), remove from the heat and drain.
Fry two eggs to your liking (soft works best for this recipe).
While the eggs are cooking, heat a splash of olive oil in a pan, add the chillies and garlic and fry for a minute or two. Add the cooked peas and toss through. Roughly crush the peas with a potato masher and season well with salt and pepper.
Plate the dish by piling the hot peas on a plate, topping it with the rested steak and then with an egg. Season well with salt and black pepper.

TIP: Add some crispy fried onion and crispy bacon bits for extra indulgence.
