    Mexican-Style Steaks & Pan Sauce with Green Beans & Roasted Sweet Potatoes
    Title
    • 1 20-Oz Pasture-Raised Ribeye Steak
    • ⅓ cup Guajillo Chile Pepper Sauce
    • 1 Lime
    • 2 Tbsps Raw Pepitas
    • 2 Tbsps Grated Cotija Cheese
    • 1 lb Sweet Potatoes
    • 6 oz Green Beans
    • 1 Tbsp Smoky Spice Blend (Smoked Paprika, Sweet Paprika, Ground Yellow Mustard, Garlic Powder & Onion Powder)
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • 2 Tbsps Vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce
    Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes
    1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch rounds. Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the sweet potato rounds on the foil; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 23 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & start the sauce

    Meanwhile, cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans. Quarter the lime. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, combine the guajillo sauce, worcestershire sauce, and 2 tablespoons of water; season with salt and pepper.

    Cook & finish the green beans
    3 Cook & finish the green beans

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the green beans in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the pepitas; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the pepitas are toasted and the green beans are softened. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges. Cover with foil to keep warm.

    Cook the steak
    4 Cook the steak

    Pat the steak dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steak. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a sheet pan. Roast in the oven 5 to 9 minutes for medium-rare (125°F), or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 10 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steaks an additional 2 to 3 minutes to achieve this.
    Consuming raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish, seafood or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.

    5 Finish the sauce & serve your dish

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until softened. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly and scraping up any fond, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steak; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steak with the finished green beans and roasted sweet potatoes. Top the steak with the finished sauce. Garnish with the cheese. Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
