Prep and 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.
- Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
On a sheet pan, drizzle the sweet potato with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil, season generously with kosher 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. Remove from the oven and toss with the ginger. Meanwhile, prepare the shaking beef.
Prep the onion and garlic
- Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
Prep and brown the steaks
- Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel. Cut the steaks into 1-inch pieces; season lightly with kosher salt and pepper.
In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While the steaks are browning, prepare the watercress and the sauce.
Prep the watercress; make the muoi tieu chanh sauce
- Trim the root ends and any coarse stems from the watercress. Set aside for serving.
- Juice the lime.
In a small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lime juice and half the salt and pepper blend, adding more blend to taste. Set aside the sauce and any remaining blend for serving.
Finish the shaking beef
In the same pan used for the steaks, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with kosher salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in the steaks and any accumulated juices and cook until almost cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the umami blend and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or water and cook, stirring to coat, until the steaks are cooked to the desired doneness, about 1 minute for medium. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] butter (from your pantry), if using. Season to taste with kosher salt and pepper.
Transfer the watercress to individual bowls and top with the shaking beef and sweet potato. Serve the muoi tieu chanh sauce and any remaining salt and pepper blend on the side.
- Scrub the sweet potato.
- Measure the ginger.
- Season the sweet potato and toss with oil.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
