This steak dish is elevated by a few easy Asian-inspired twists. Yuzu juice (from a unique sour citrus fruit) and miso paste combine to dress our sweet potatoes, while crisp sweet peppers get a boost from spicy sambal oelek and citrusy ponzu.

In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, yuzu juice, miso paste, and sliced white bottoms of the scallions

STOVE: Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove and discard the cores. Thinly slice lengthwise.
