A great steak recipe requires the perfect combination of elements, that when properly prepared, result in a satisfying and delicious meal. Our steak recipe and video reveal how to properly accomplish cooking steak to perfection. Top it off with pan-fried avocado, and the spicy touch of salsa for mealtime success.

1

Preheat oven to 210°F. Peel sweet potato and slice very finely with a mandoline or knife (or use a peeler for large strips). Peel and finely chop shallot and garlic.

2

In a pan, heat a little more than ½ cup of oil and fry the sweet potato slices in small batches over high heat for about 2 minutes per batch until crisp, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towel and season with salt.

3

Finely dice tomatoes. Finely dice jalapeño, removing stalk and seeds. Put cilantro tips aside for garnishing, remove the remaining leaves from stems and chop finely.

4

Wash lime, zest peel, squeeze juice, and mix with tomatoes, jalapeño, shallot, half of the garlic and chopped cilantro in a bowl. Season with salt, sugar, and pepper to taste.

5

Cut avocado in half, remove pit and flesh in one piece. Crumble chili into fine pieces. Season steak on all sides with salt and pepper to taste.

6

Place avocado halves in a bowl and marinate with 2 - 4 tbsp. oil, chili, salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil in a pan and sear sirloin steaks on high heat for 1 minute on both sides.

7

Place steaks on a baking sheet covered with foil or wax paper. Cook for 10 minutes in the preheated oven on a middle rack.

8

Heat oil in the previously used pan and cook avocado halves on high heat for about 1 minute. Then turn over, add remaining garlic, and cook for another minute. Remove steaks from oven, let rest for 3 minutes, covered, and then cut in half at an angle.

9

Place steaks and avocado on a plate. Garnish with sweet potato chips and salsa.
