Chef's Tip

Size matters! When roasting the sweet potato, use a sheet pan large enough to spread the slices in a single layer to help ensure they cook evenly (we recommend a pan about 18 by 13 inches). Use a stainless-steel pan if you have one; a darker metal pan will speed the browning, so give the potatoes an extra stir or two while they roast.

Ingredient IQ

The 19th-century inventor George Washington Carver wasn’t content to just eat sweet potatoes; he used them to make over one hundred different products, including paint, textiles, glue, and even chocolate.

Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the sweet potato

Heat the oven to 450°F.
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices.
On a sheet pan, drizzle the sweet potato with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil; season generously with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread in an even layer and roast, turning once halfway through, until the potato is tender and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
While the potato roasts, prepare the scallion-ginger relish.


Make the scallion-ginger relish

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions.
  • Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallions and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly charred and softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly, then thinly slice crosswise. Do not clean the pan.
In a medium bowl, stir together the scallions, ginger, vinegar, paprika, and 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the steak

  • Pat the steak dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In the same pan used for the scallions, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, 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. Add more oil between batches if needed. Do not clean the pan.
While the steak cooks and rests, prepare the garlic.


Prep the garlic; cook the kale

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
In the same pan used for the steak, if dry, add 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Working in batches if needed, stir in the kale and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the steak, kale, and sweet potato to individual plates. Top the steak with the scallion-ginger relish and serve.
