Wash produce before use

1

Roast the sweet potato

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
On a sheet pan, drizzle the sweet potato with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil, season with salt and pepper and the harissa powder, 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 sweet potato roasts, prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep and cook the steaks

  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
For the top sirloins and filet mignons:
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare for top sirloins and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut the steaks into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

For the rib-eyes:
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning once, until well browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut the steaks into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

While the steaks cook and rest, prepare the chard.

3

Prep and cook the chard

  • Strip the chard leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves and stems, keeping them separate.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
In the same pan used for the steaks, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the chard stems, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften and brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and chard leaves (the chard leaves in batches if needed) and cook until the leaves are just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the steaks, sweet potato, and chard to individual plates. Drizzle the chimichurri over the steaks and serve.
