Is this another lazy meal by JB? Why yes, yes it is. It’s fancy though BECAUSE the steak is an elk steak. Ooooooo, ahhhhhh. You so fancy.

A friend named Matt from the gym was kind enough to bring me some elk from hunting season. Elk is delicious. And smells weird. But I like it. But if you don’t have elk on hand, you don’t have to be fancy. You can go the old beef route. I’ll still like you.

I have big plans for this weekend. First off, hopefully not being so uncomfortably sore FROM MONDAY that I can walk like a normal person (that will never happen, I walk weird normally) and be able to complete workouts with actual good times. Next, I will be watching my gym compete in the inaugural Amazing Race. We will be doing a CrossFit amazing race, which our owner Jason has come up with, in which our athletes will be doing workouts all around Denver and having to do weird things that I cannot speak of. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you all about it next week. Hopefully with pictures. And lastly, I plan on getting a tan. Lake Powell is coming up soon. Not only are there extremely good looking people on this trip, but they are extremely fit good looking people. You know how body builders make their bodies stupid tan before a competition? That’s what I plan to do. Every imperfection will be covered by bronze. OMG tan.

Oh, and I plan to go out and dance somewhere. In a skirt. A girly skirt. I went out today planning to get some sort of heel type shoe and guess what I bought…two kinds of New Balance shoes. I went to the New Balance store for gosh sakes, what was I expecting to find.

You know what sucks? Well, feeling like I have rhabdo in my legs. But that’s not the true sucky thing. What really sucks is that my blonde hair is growing in and it looks like I’m either balding or have gray hairs. I refuse to be a blonde. Not that there is anything wrong with that you blonde babes out there, but I refuse to believe I was born blonde. My armpit hair is not blonde, so why should my head be? Did I really just talk about the color of my armpit hair? Reason #48 why I am single.

I want a cookie.


Fancy Steak & Eggs

  • Yield: 1 1x


  • 1 elk round steak (or steak of your choice)
  • 12 pieces of bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced thin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • avocado, to top
  • fat of choice – I used bacon fat


  1. Heat up 2 small skillets over medium heat.
  2. Add a tablespoon of bacon fat to one of your skillets and add your sliced onion. Salt and pepper your onions to your liking. Use a wood spoon to stir the onions around to make sure they don’t burn and help them caramelize.
  3. While the onions get to caramelizing, first salt and pepper your steak and add a bit of basil to both sides. Then wrap your piece(s) of bacon around your steak and add it directly to your hot pan.
  4. Cook your steak on both sides for about 3-4 minutes. Elk steak doesn’t need to cook very long because it doesn’t have a ton of fat, but cook your steak accordingly and how you like your steak cooked.
  5. After your steak is cooked, put on a plate to rest and add a bit more bacon fat to that same pan, if needed.
  6. Now crack both of your eggs into the pan (this is where you can cook your eggs however you’d like).
  7. I made my eggs over easy so I let cook for about a min, salt and peppered my eggs, then put about a teaspoon of water into the pan and covered with a lid to steam the top of the eggs.
  8. After about 1 more minute or when eggs are cooked to preference, pull off heat and top on your steak.
  9. Once onions are caramelized, after about 10 minutes, top on steak and eggs. Then slice up some avocado to make it pretty and delicious.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. OMG! I’m so jealous you are going to lake powell! I practically grew up on that lake. The first time I went was when I was 7 months old! P.S. you are a rock star…I love elk.

  2. Elk steak is so yummy and healthy (wild game). Also, I think skirts are a girl’s best friend when she has big thighs and butt that don’t like jeans very much.:) They’re more comfortable in my opinion, if you are shaped the way a lot of women (me) are.

  3. I seriously LOVE the way you write. You make me laugh, I relate so much with what you say. For exampeelay (that’s how I was saying it it my head. . . ) the shoe thing, I’ve done that SO MANY times! Do I really think I’m going to find cute girlie flats at the Nike outlet?? But yet that is where I end up. Or when I’m looking for something to wear that is a little “dressier” than I normally dress, and I come home with yet another bag full of V-neck T’s, usually in gray and black. Anywhoo, I digress. . . what I wanted to say was that I totally relate, I love your blog, I too love to eat and workout, and I too am going to Lake Powell in about a week. 🙂

  4. Mmmmm! Great way to spend the last 10 minutes of my work day! Haha! This looks so tasty! Looking like it will be a Sunday evening meal this weekend – if it isn’t too hot to grill… or work on my tan… arms and legs are good, midsection? A little lighter than pale! Not quite ready for that new swim suit or our vacation in a month!

    Oh and Juli, not ALL of Washington is rainy, promise! (no need for the “state” part… you don’t call it Colorado “state” do you? It’s DC that has the annoying extra leters…) Most of the eastern half of the state is desert. It’s currently 97 degrees out side and the only rain we’ve gotten in 2 months has been thunder storm rain 🙂 it’s lovely here!

  5. i just made this for dinner tonight – it was amazing!! (i used grass fed ribeye which is what i had on hand) – but definitely a keeper!! i also made your spinach and artichoke dip for an appetizer with homemade sweet potato chips.. which my husband decided was “parent worthy” .. my parents don’t eat paleo so I love to wow them with kick ass recipes. they’re obsessed with your sweet and salty balls. Hm that came out wrong.. i think they’re called sweet and salty fudge balls? I think i like the first title better.

    Anyways thanks for the awesome recipes Juli.. i heard you might be creating something in book form? if so make sure that it is sold in Georgia!

  6. i used to dye my hair darker too and i would always say when my roots grew in they looked grey. hey its not easy being blonde, but not i just embrace it 🙂

  7. Tried this last night and it was great! I may have added a bit too much salt, or maybe it was the bacon, but it was still nom nom yummy! My steak was a bit too big for the bacon hug, so I just put it on top under the egg. May have been the best eggs I’ve ever made too! Thanks Juli! Instagram pic coming soon!

  8. Juli,

    I’m pretty sure we’re long lost soul mates or something… kidding, sorta.

    But on a serious note, I recently found your blog through a friend and wanted to say thank you for offering such great information and recipes in such an entertaining manner.

    I’ve recently begun CrossFit training and decided to make a change to a paleo lifestyle. You’re making the process much easier.

    Thanks again,

  9. I made this this morning w/grass-fed skirt steak. It was so freaking good! Thank you! Now I am so stuffed, I need a nap…and I have to work…Great combo!

  10. so obsessed w your blog you are hilarious and wonderful… i am also a natural blonde who dyes the shit out of my make it dark… however right now it’s also grown out so i totally feel ya on the bald/weird blonde root situation 🙂

  11. Yum! That looks delicious. I’m searching for recipes for grass fed steak. Ever since learning about grass fed beef, I’ve been delighting my family by serving more of it. So, I’ve been looking for variety and this looks wonderful. Thank you.
