          Directions

          For the black bean relish: Combine the onions, cilantro, olive oil, tomatoes, beans, chiles and lime juice in a bowl and season with salt and black pepper. Let the relish sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld.

          For the hollandaise: Place the lime juice and yolks in a medium stainless-steel bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Whisk the yolks until pale yellow and fluffy. Slowly add the melted butter, a few tablespoons at a time, and whisk until thickened. Remove from the heat, whisk in the steak sauce and season with the salt and black pepper. Keep warm.

          For the Texas toast: Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
          Combine the garlic, butter and some salt and pepper in a small bowl. Butter both sides of the bread with some of the garlic butter, and grill until nicely charred on both sides.

          For the steak: Put each slice in between pieces of plastic wrap and use a meat
          mallet to pound them into thin steaks. Sprinkle both sides with some of the steak
          rubsalt and black pepper. Heat the oil in a cast-iron pan over high heat. Add the steaks and cook until a crust forms, about 1 minute. Flip and cook for another minute until the other side forms a crust as well.

          For the poached eggs: Bring 3 cups water and vinegar to a gentle simmer in a large high-sided frying pan. Break each egg into a cup and gently add to the water. Poach until the yolks are nearly set, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the eggs from the pan with a slotted spoon to drain the liquid. Season the top with salt and black pepper.

          For assembly: Spoon some of the black bean relish on top of each piece of the Texas toast. Top each with 2 pieces of steak, a poached egg, then some of the hollandaise. Garnish with whole cilantro leaves.

            Killer!! Easy to make, lovely to look at and a dream to eat. I substituted Pinto for Black Beans, not fond of black beans. The Hollandaise was a bit tricky but only because I was impatient and it broke. No problem to correct that error however. I did add a touch of red pepper to it. This will be one of my go to brunch dishes and I do brunch every Saturday!!
