Instructions

Wash produce before use

1

Heat the sweet potatoes

Heat the oven to 425°F.
Transfer the sweet potatoes to an ovenproof dish and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until heated through. Meanwhile, cook your protein and chard.

2

Cook your protein

Pat your protein dry with a paper towel (if using shrimp, rinse and drain, then pat dry). Season with salt and pepper.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein.

Steaks: Cook the steaks, turning frequently, until well browned and medium-rare, 4 to 6 minutes for rib-eyes and New York strips, 6 to 8 minutes 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.

Chicken: Cook the chicken, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut the chicken into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

Fish: Cook the fish (skin side down for skin-on snapper) until lightly browned (and the snapper skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

Shrimp: Cook the shrimp, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

Scallops: Cook the scallops without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

Pork chops: Cook the pork chops, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Cut the pork chops into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

3

Cook the chard

In the same pan used for your protein, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the chard and garlic (the chard in batches if needed), season with salt and pepper, and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the chard is just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

Serve

Transfer your protein, chard, and sweet potatoes to individual plates. Drizzle your protein with as much chimichurri as you like and serve any remaining chimichurri on the side.
