Chimichurri Sauce

Optional Ingredients


  1. Combine chimichurri sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor. 

  2. Pulse until well combined, stopping once to scrape down sides of container. Set aside.

  3. Preheat oven to 425°F. 

  4. Spread out sweet potato into a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, tossing gently to combine. 

  5. Cook sweet potatoes in oven for 20-25 minutes, tossing halfway through, or until sweet potatoes have golden edges. Set aside and keep warm.

  6. Meanwhile, heat a large cast-iron skillet (12-inch recommended) over MEDIUM-HIGH heat. Add 1 Tbsp. butter to melt. Season steak with salt and pepper, then cook in melted butter for about 3-4 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches at least 145° F  medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, as measured by a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the steak.

  7. Transfer steak to a cutting board. Allow to rest 3-5 minutes before slicing across the grain. Cook eggs in same skillet to desired doneness.  

  8. To serve family-style, transfer sweet potatoes, steak, and eggs back to skillet. To serve individually, place sweet potatoes on plate, then place ¼ of steak slices and 1 egg on each plate. Top with avocado slices and crumbled feta. Drizzle with Chimichurri Sauce. If desired, sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve with corn tortillas.
