Step by step recipe:

  1. 3 min.Steak burger topped with egg : Photo of step #1
    Remove 2 eggs and 2 minceds steak burgers from the fridge at least 1 hour before using.

    Salt and pepper steak burgers both sides.

    Note: You can make a small depression in the top of each by pressing, which will help keep the egg in place for serving.

    If you intend to serve the burgers with fried potatoes for example, begin by frying these first, then keep hot.

    In the same pan, pour 1 tablespoon oil, and when hot add the steak burgers.

    Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, then transfer onto a hot plate and cover with aluminium foil to keep them hot and moist.
  4. 3 min.
    Separate the egg yolks from the whites.

    Still using the same pan, melt 1 teaspoon butter, then add ½ teaspoon water (a trick to stop the egg white forming a crispy edge).

    Pour the whites into the pan, season and cook.

    ...and place a yolk carefully in the centre. Surround with potatoes, or other accompaniment.

    Salt the egg yolk lightly just before serving.

Remarks:

As you will have read, the egg yolk is not cooked, but just warms through in contact with the white and the meat. This way you can be sure of nicely set white, liquid yolk, and tender meat. Just right...

To improve the appearance, you can try pouring in the yolks separately (but you'll need a very large pan), or cooking them one after the other, to give proper circles.
