I’m not a huge meat eater to begin with (in case you didn’t notice), so I don’t cook a lot of steaks. Honestly, for the price of the meat I just can’t justify buying it for myself. But, Ben absolutely loves steak…I swear, his stomach is a bottomless pit when it comes to steak. So, every now and then I like to get him a good steak and I just make myself some hearty veggies. I could eat my weight in sweet potatoes, and he loves them too, so that’s usually my pairing here.
Honestly though, this dish doesn’t really have a recipe because it’s just that simple. Chop sweet potatoes and baby red potatoes so that the sweet potatoes are a little smaller than the baby reds (sweet potatoes have more starch and take longer to cook). Toss with EVOO and seasonings, and bake at 375 until tender. Pan sear a steak to your desired doneness. I make Ben cook his own because that’s one cooking technique he definitely can do better than I can – know your strengths!
