3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more as needed
12 ozs. sirloin steak, cut into thin slices (it’s easier to slice if frozen for 30 minutes first)
kosher salt and ground pepper
3 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
1 red onion, thinly julienned
1 fresh jalapeno, seeded and minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4-cup low sodium soy sauce
2 limes, (1 juiced; plus 1 cut into wedges for garnish)
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
--Steamed brown rice, prepared according to directions
Put a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When heated, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the beef and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir immediately, then stir every 20 seconds or so until the meat loses its color, only a minute or two. Transfer the beef to a plate.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, tossing in the sweet potatoes, onion, minced jalapeno, and garlic. Cook, stirring only occasionally, until the potatoes change color and begin to brown, and then stir more frequently until they are tender but not at all mushy, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Return the beef to the pan along with the soy sauce and lime juice. Cook, stirring and scraping bits from bottom of the pan, until the liquid is slightly reduced. Toss in the basil, and stir to combine. Serve over steamed brown rice an lime wedges along side.
TIP: This recipe also works great with shrimp/prawns, pork, or chicken. I also make this with moose/venison meat, but I like to simmer the meat beforehand for a couple of hours to tenderize, and then I begin the recipe as listed by sauteing the meat first...
