From the Test Kitchen

Steakhouse-style flavors abound in this dish thanks to two indulgent sides of mashed sweet potatoes and sautéed mushrooms, spinach, and onion—finished with a bit of worcestershire sauce for incredible depth of flavor. For even more rich flavor, we’re topping the simply seared steaks with a herbaceous mix of salsa verde and mayonnaise.

Add the diced sweet potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted. Turn off the heat.
