If you found this from Instagram, then look no further, the recipe for this delicious, yet healthy dish is finally here.

This served 2 people.


Schwartz Mixed Herbs,

Steak – I opted for 2 Rump steaks as it was what i could find during this uncertain time, but choose whatever is your preferred cut of steak,

1 bag of Flat Leaf Parsley,

Sweet Potatoes – I used 3 medium sized ones,

1 Lemon (zest and juice),

A pinch of Ground Black Pepper

A pinch of Table Salt,

1 Garlic Clove,

1 Small Scotch Bonnet/Red Chilli,

1/2  Red Pepper,

Olive oil – to drizzle onto the sweet potatoes and into the sauce,

2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar


Sweet Potatoes:

  1. Wash and slice/ chop  the sweet potatoes – I opted for them to be like fries but cut them into whatever shape you fancy. Place in a tray or plate to drizzle over two tablespoons of oil and toss the potatoes making sure each potato has some oil on.
  2. Heat the oven to 200C  and line a flat baking tray with baking  parchment.
  3. Place  the sweet potatoes onto the baking tray, making sure that the sweet potatoes are flat, not touching each other and sprinkle some Schwartz Mixed Herbs onto the sweet potatoes.
  4. Cook these until soft. I cooked mine for 20 minutes.


Steak (for medium rare steak)

  1. Heat a frying pan with oil.
  2.  Sprinkle the steak with salt and black pepper then place into the frying pan. Cook for 3 minutes (you can do this from anywhere between 3-6 minutes) on each side.
  3. Place the steaks on a chopping/resting board ready to serve.

Adjust the time cooking for the steaks depending on how you like them, if you like yours a little more well done leave for longer on each side (7-10 minutes) if you like yours rarer reduce the time from 3 minutes.


Chimichurri Sauce

  1. Wash and chop the Parsley.
  2. Zest the lemon
  3. Slice the lemon in half and juice.
  4. Chop the scotch bonnet (OR) red chilli, you can do both if you really like spice) and red pepper.
  5. Crush the garlic (OR smash and chop).
  6. Add the ingredients, and add a dash of Schwartz mixed herbs to a bowl, add the 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar, lemon juice and and oil and stir the mix.

Now to plate up.

Place your steak onto the plate and then plate up the sweet potatoes, garnish the Chimichurri onto the steak you can add as much or little as you like.


This dish is quick and simple, with the sweet potato fries it also adds the healthy element to the mix.

I purchased the steak, parsley, white wine vinegar and garlic from Tesco and you can find the Schwartz mixed herbs here.

Happy Monday and stay safe.
