    When ready to cook, preheat your grill pan or grill to a high heat, then sear steaks until the center of the thickest piece of each steak is 135°F for medium rare, let the steak tips rest while you cook your eggs.

    For the Eggs: In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium low heat. When butter is melted add the eggs. Cook over medium low heat until eggs are softly cooked and custardy.

    Slice the steak and divide between four plates. Divide the eggs between the plates as well and serve garnished with chopped chives and toast.
