2 Sweet Potato (Japanese or regular)
340 grams Ribeye Steak, Bone-In (room temperature)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
2 1/2 tbsps Avocado Oil (divided)
2 tsps Thyme (fresh, chopped fine)
6 Cremini Mushrooms (sliced)
Preheat the oven to 425ºF (218ºC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Poke the sweet potatoes with a fork a few times to vent them and place them on the baking sheet. Cook for 45 to 50 minutes, until cooked through.
Pat the steak very dry with paper towel. Season with 3/4 of the salt.
Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat until hot. Add half of the oil. Place the steak in the middle of the skillet and cook for 13 to 15 minutes, flipping and turning every two to three minutes, until a dark crust has formed on both sides. Reduce the heat and add half of the thyme and spoon over top of the steak. Remove and let rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
In the same skillet, add the remaining oil and then the mushrooms and cook until browned and cooked through, about five to seven minutes. Add the remaining thyme during the last minute and stir to incorporate. Season with the remaining salt. Divide the sweet potato, steak, and mushrooms onto plates. Enjoy!
Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days.
More Flavour: Spoon the steak with butter or ghee near the end of cooking.
