I work from home, and everyone seems to think this means unlimited time to prepare meals, but that’s simply not the case. It’s great if you’re going to cook something all day, such as a beef stew, because once it’s in the pot, it’s extremely low maintenance.

Otherwise, I’m still bound by the same time constraints as anyone, a lunch break, and because I like to finish my day so I can go for a ride, or get busy in the kitchen, so lunch is generally an as-quick-as-possible event.

And thus, my Speed Steak, Spinach, and Egg for lunch, was born..

Step 1: Steak

If you can, take your steak out of the fridge several hours before cooking, and season with salt and peppers. It’s not critical, but it will help.

Step 2: Pan

Cut a slice of butter of the block and throw it into a pan set to high

Step 3: Spinach

I used bunches rather than baby spinach leaves, so in this instance, cut the end of stems, including any roots, off.

If you’re micromanaging your carbohydrate intake, it’s a good idea to weigh it up

Step 4: Sear and Season

When the butter is bubbling away, put the steak in

And season

And then, turn

Step 5: Remove the Steak

After receiving a couple minutes on both sides, pull the steak out and check to see how cooked it is. Also, turn the heat down to something about halfway, but take the pan off the heat too.

This steak is a little pink in the middle, cook for longer on a lower temperature to bring it to your preference, otherwise, follow on.

Step 6: Egg

Crack an egg into the still-hot pan, it will start to cook, and even bubble a little

Step 7: Slicing Steak

While the egg is cooking, slice the steak into strips

And throw them into the pan, either next to the egg, or take the egg out

When it’s cooked a little more, take it out of the pan and onto a plate

Step 8: Spinach

Melt some more butter in the pan

And even add a little garlic, because it’s amazing with spinach

Then throw in your spinach. Allow it to cook for a minute, then use some tongs to toss it around, to make sure it’s all covered with butter.


Glorious. You’ll easily crack your ratios with this, plus a massive hit of potassium and non-grain-derived fiber from the spinach.
