Featured Recipe: Balsamic Marinated Skirt Steak & Garlic Sweet Potato Fries

We posted a picture of this on our Facebook page last week and we had enough interest in it to warrant posting the recipe.  Super awesome and only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.

Balsamic Marinated Skirt Steak

2lbs skirt steak (flank steak or flat iron steak will also work but skirt is by far the best)
1/2 cup olive oil
2tbsp Balsamic vinegar
2tbsp spicy brown mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Juice of one lemon or 2tbsp lemon juice
1 pinch ginger
2 packets stevia

In a large glass dish or Ziploc bag, combine all marinade ingredients with the steak and coat completely.  Throw the steak in the fridge while you preheat the grill.  For extra awesome, allow the steak to marinade for at least 30 minutes before grilling.

Grill for 4-5 minutes per side for medium or longer if you like it more done (but it’s skirt steak, so you shouldn’t).

Garlic Sweet Potato Fries

3-4 sweet potatoes, skin on
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

First, fill a large saucepan about half full of water and bring to a boil on the stovetop (tip: for a faster boil, put the lid on while you heat the water).  While the water is heating, cut the sweet potato into wedges or slices.

Turn your oven on “broil.”

Once the water is boiling, add the sweet potatoes and boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

Drain the saucepan and add the sweet potatoes to a glass dish.  Pour the sweet potato marinade over and mix with a wooden spoon or soft spatula (sweet potatoes will be hot, so if you choose to use your hands, be careful).

Lay sweet potatoes on an ungreased cookie sheet in a single layer and broil for 5 minutes per side.

Let cool and serve.  Thank me later.
