  • 3 small-medium sweet potatoes, cut into matchsticks
  • 4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • kosher salt and fresh black pepper
  • 1 (8-10 ounce) ribeye steak or 1 1/2 pound flank steak
  • 6 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, at room temperature
  • 3-4 ounces gorgonzola or blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Balsamic Vinaigrette


  • 1. To make the fries. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the sweet potatoes on a large baking sheet and toss with 3 tablespoons olive oil, the chipotle chili powder, and a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Spread the fries in an even layer. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, then flip and bake for 15-20 minutes more. You want the sweet potatoes to be tender, yet crisp. 
    2. To make the vinaigrette. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and shake or whisk until combined. Taste and adjust the salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
    3. To make the steak. Remove the steaks from the fridge 30 minutes prior to grilling. Preheat the grill or a grill pan to high heat. Rub with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Sear until your desired doneness is reached, about 5-8 minutes for medium-rare, per side. Remove the steaks and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes.
    4. Combine the butter, blue cheese, and basil in a bowl. Spread the butter over the steak, then slice against the grain.
    5. Assemble the salad. Add the romaine, tomatoes, avocado, and dressing. Toss to combine. Once the salad has been tossed, top with fries and steak. Serve immediately.


Blue Cheese: if you just can't do blue cheese, swap the blue cheese for 1/3 cup grated parmesan or make garlic butter with 1-2 cloves grated garlic. Either will be delicious.
