  • 2 organic purple sweet potatoes
  • 6 ounces organic cremini or other button mushrooms
  • 2 sprigs organic fresh rosemary
  • Steak options:
  • 2 top sirloin steaks (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1 organic New York strip (about 14 ounces; 1 steak serves 2)
  • 2 organic filet mignons (about 5 ounces each)
  • Sun Basket roasted red pepper salsa (roasted red peppers - almonds - EVOO - tomato paste - balsamic vinegar - fresh garlic - sweet smoked paprika - kosher salt)

Chef's Tip

To get a nice brown sear on the steak, dry the meat as thoroughly as possible and give the pan plenty of time to heat before you start cooking.

Make It Leaner

Use just half the roasted red pepper salsa to cut 70 calories and 7 grams of fat per serving. The next day, spoon the leftovers atop hummus and serve with vegetable sticks for a healthy snack.

Ingredient IQ

What is the difference between cremini, brown, baby bella, Italian, and Roman mushrooms? Trick question! They are all names for the same mushroom: young portobello. Similar to white or button mushrooms, this variously named brown cousin is just a different strain, with a slightly denser consistency and a deeper, meatier flavor.

Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the vegetables

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potatoes; cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Cut the mushrooms in half lengthwise; cut any large mushrooms into quarters.
  • Strip the rosemary leaves from the stems and finely chop enough to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp]. Save any remaining rosemary for another use.
On a sheet pan, drizzle the sweet potatoes and mushrooms with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper, sprinkle with the rosemary, and toss to coat. Spread in an even layer and roast, turning once halfway through, until the vegetables are tender and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
While the vegetables roast, prepare the steak.


Prep and cook the steak

  • Pat the steak dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steak and cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare for top sirloins and New York strip and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. Transfer to a plate to rest for 5 minutes.


Transfer the steak to individual plates and top with the roasted red pepper salsa. Serve the roasted vegetables on the side.
