- 4 tenderloin steaks, 1/2 inch thick
- 4 eggs
- 4 English muffins, toasted and buttered
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 3 large egg yoks
- 1 1/2 tablespoon cold water
- butter melted
- 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- salt & pepper to taste
- Tabasco, to taste
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 sauce: Whisk eggs 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 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 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.
Suggestions: There are packaged sauce mixes available at most grocery stores which can be substituted.
