Other Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp green onion
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 5 slices cucumbers
  • 1 tbsp pate
  • 1 baguette


  • Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a Ziploc bag (plastic bag). Shake it until everything is mixed and the steak is coated. Set aside at room temperature to marinate for 30 minutes.
  • While the steak is marinating, cut your onions and green onions.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a cast iron pan over medium high heat. If you don’t have a cast iron, a non stick pan should work as well. Place the steak in the pan and let it cook until it gets a good sear (3-5 minutes).
  • Flip the steak over. Add the butter. Spoon the melted butter over the steak. This will help cook the steak further and give it a nice sear. Once the steak has a nice sear on the second side, make sure to sear all the other sides too. The steak should be a medium rare to medium at this point. If you want to cook the steak more, put the steak in the oven for a few minutes.
  • Once the steak is cooked to your preferred doneness, place it on a cooling rack to rest. This ensures that all the juices don’t flow out when you cut into it.
  • Next, cook your onion and green onion. Throw them into the cast iron and cook until the onions are translucent. Set aside.
  • Next add the tomatoes and cook for a few minutes. Set aside.
  • Lastly, fry the egg. Set aside.
  • Drain excess oil from the pan and place the steak, onion, green onion, tomatoes, and egg back into the cast iron. Add the cucumbers, pate, and baguette. 
  • Serve the bo ne in the cast iron!


  1. This recipe serves one person, but depending on how much you eat, you can share this serving or double/triple the recipe.
  2. The time it takes to cook your steak will vary based on how thick the steak is. Mine was about 1 inch thick.
