In this Asian twist on steak and chips you cook your steak with a chili miso baste and sesame-flecked sweet potatoes. You can control the chili heat by adding more or less Miso Chili Sauce to your taste - be game, you might surprise yourself!
  • 450 Grams of Sweet Potato (Small)
  • 2 Teaspoons of White Sesame Seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons of Miso Chili Steak Sauce
  • 350 Grams of Scotch Fillet Steak (Thick-Cut)
  • 1 Green Chili
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 75 Gram Pack of Asian Lettuce Mix

Cook Sweet Potato:

Preheat oven to 200°C. Wash and cut sweet potato into 1 cm wedges (to ensure even cooking). Spread in a single layer over a lined baking tray (use 2 if needed) and coat with a little oil, salt and pepper. Sprinkle over sesame seeds and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Marinate Steak:

Zest lemon and cut into quarters. Pat dry the beef with a paper towel. In a small bowl, combine miso chili steak sauce and juice from ¼ of the lemon, mixing well. Add half the marinade to the beef, coat and set aside for 10 minutes.

Cook Steak:

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add steak and cook 2-3 minutes before flipping. Flip 3 times for a total cooking time of 10-12 minutes (or to your preferred doneness). Remove from pan and allow to rest. (TIP: we supply our meat as a thick-cut piece, as we think it cooks much better as a bigger piece. You can always cut into thinner steaks if preferred, but bear in mind you will have to keep a closer eye on it to reach your desired doneness).

Slice Steak & Prepare Salad:

Thinly slice chili (de-seeding if you want less heat). Slice steak as thick or thin desired. Combine asian mixed lettuce with lemon zest, green chili (to taste, reserving some for garnish), a squeeze of lemon juice and 1 TBS olive oil (extra virgin if you have it) and toss well. (NOTE: We had a suggestion from a customer to add in some more greens on this recipe, so we listened. That's why you don't see any salad in the pic 😉 )

You Plate It:

Divide sweet potato and salad between plates and add sliced steak. Top steak with as much remaining sauce as desired. Garnish with reserved sliced chili and lemon wedge. Enjoy!
