The quest for a perfect soft-cooked egg ends here. Chef Justine’s no-fuss 5-minute method yields a white that’s set but not too firm, and a creamy yellow yolk. It makes a rich and elegant topping for this easy steak salad, and helps mellow the tartness of the bright lemon-basil vinaigrette and thinly sliced apples.
