“Steak à Cheval” is a French term that translates to “steak on horseback” or “horseback steak” in English. It refers to a dish where a fried egg is placed on top of a steak, resembling a rider on a horse, hence the name.

The steak is typically a beef steak, such as a sirloin or ribeye, although other cuts may be used. The fried egg adds flavor to the dish and is often cooked sunny-side up or over easy to allow the yolk to run over the steak when cut into. It’s a classic and indulgent dish enjoyed in daily French cuisine.

I tried it a local brasserie one evening and really enjoyed it! The egg added a moist twist to my classic hamburger. Yum.
