Serves: 2

  • 2 6-8 oz. cuts of beef tenderloin
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut medium dice
  • spinach, optional
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Espagnole sauce
  • olive oil, for rubbing and drizzling
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Rub each steak with about a tablespoon of olive oil. Season your steaks with salt and pepper, on both sides.
  3. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss well and spread into one even layer. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  4. Heat a large skillet under medium high heat. Add about a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and heat until shimmering.
  5. Add steaks and cook until desired doneness (I think a medium rare is perfect, about 6-8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your cut). Let rest on a cutting board for about 5 minutes.
  6. Warm up Espagnole Sauce, if needed.
  7. To plate, place a good amount of sweet potatoes on the center of the plate. Top with steak and drizzle Espagnole sauce over top. Serve with a side salad of spinach and some fresh bread.
