Step 1

First, wash the sweet potatoes and make some punctures with a fork. Bake in foil in the oven until soft. Roasting time depends on the size of the sweet potato. At 180 degrees C, it may take 30 to 50 minutes.

Step 2

Put fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro), peeled garlic, red pepper flakes, red wine vinegar in a blender bowl.

Step 3

Pour in olive oil and add ground cumin, a pinch of salt and pepper. Grind until you have a smooth, thick chimichurri sauce.

Step 4

Preheat the pan well. Place steak and saute on one side over medium heat for 5 minutes. Salt a little and add pepper.

Step 5

Flip the steak over and cook for another 5 minutes. Then leave it covered in a pan for another 10 minutes.

Step 6

Peel and chop the baked sweet potato, place in a blender and chop until lump-free puree is obtained.

Step 7

Cut the steak into small pieces.

Step 8

You can assemble a dish to serve. Place the sweet potato mash with the beef steak next to it. Pour the chimichurri sauce. Serve hot or warm.
