Grilled Rib Eyes with Hasselback Sweet Potatoes
4 – 6
Low-effort dinners can still be damned delicious, as proved by this steak & sweet potato recipes from Amanda Haas. Quick and easy, but still packing epic amounts of wood-fired flavor, it’s an ideal option for busy weeknights.
2 (1-1/2 to 2 lb) bone-in rib-eye steaks
4 sweet potatoes
As Needed extra-virgin olive oil
As Needed salt and pepper
1One hour before preparing, remove the steaks from the refrigerator to allow them to come to room temperature.
2When ready to cook, set Traeger to 400°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
3Using a sharp knife, cut each sweet potato crosswise into 1/8 inch slices, cutting only 3/4 of the way through the potatoes so they stay intact. Optional: lay chopsticks on either side of the potato to help prevent your knife from slicing all the way through the potatoes.
4Place the cut potatoes on a sheet pan. Drizzle with oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Place the pan on the grill. Roast until the potatoes are browned on the outside and tender in the center, 50 to 60 minutes.
5While the sweet potatoes are roasting, prep the steaks. Rub each steak with oil, and sprinkle salt and pepper generously over each side.
6When the sweet potatoes are almost done, place the steaks on the grill and cook, allowing each side to sear, until the internal temperature reaches 130°F for medium-rare, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
7Remove the steaks from the grill, and let rest for 10 minutes.
8Slice the steaks against the grain. Place the potatoes and sliced the steak on a platter. Serve with Amanda’s Lemon Gremolata for extra flavor. Enjoy!
