The appropriate name for this with a sunnyside egg on top is Bistec a Caballo. I hesitated to put an egg on my husbands, because, it’s different. Shannon doesn’t like different usually. But when I asked him, he surprised me and wanted to try it. It was delicious! Serve by itself for a lower carb option, or with whole grain rice for a healthier option, or with mashed potatoes like we did. Yummy! (Even the kiddos loved the egg! I cooked theirs thoroughly though!)
