Steak and Sweet Potato Skillet
2tablespoonsavocado oil(use more if your pan is not well-seasoned)
1 1/2poundssteak, cut into 1-1½ inch pieces(I like sirloin)
Make the sauce. Add the lime juice, chipotle paste, garlic powder, cumin, cinnamon, and salt and pepper to a small bowl or jar and mix well to combine. Set aside.
Salt and pepper your steak. Heat a large cast-iron skillet (it needs to be large) over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and let it get hot. Add steak in a single layer and cook for 3-5 minutes until browned on the outside, flipping as needed. If needed, you may need to cook in 2 batches. Remove from the pan, leaving the juices behind.
Add 1 tablespoon oil (you may need more depending on how well seasoned your pan is). Add sweet potatoes and onions and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. If needed, cover with a lid to help speed up the process, but you don’t want them to steam too much. Add peppers and mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes.
Add steak and juices and mix well to combine. Add chipotle sauce and mix well until combined and warmed through. Top with optional toppings and enjoy!
nutrition will depend on what cut of steak you use
