From EatingWell: April/May 2006 "A Moroccan-inspired spice rub coats the steak and is tossed with the sweet potatoes as well. The foil-packet cooking method for the sweet potatoes yields excellent results (and fewer dishes). Make it a Meal: Sauteed greens, such as arugula, kale or spinach and a glass of Zinfandel round out the meal.

Recipe Ingredients for Moroccan-Rub Grilled Steak & Sweet Potatoes

1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt, kosher
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound top round steak (or strip steak)
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and very thinly slice
1 med red onion, halved and thinly sliced
4 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon grated orange zest

Recipe Directions for Moroccan-Rub Grilled Steak & Sweet Potatoes

  1. Preheat grill to high.

  2. Combine allspice, cumin, ginger, salt, cinnamon, coriander and cayenne in a small bowl. Sprinkle steaks with 4 1/2 teaspoons of the spice mixture. Toss sweet potatoes and onion with canola oil, orange zest and the remaining spice mixture.

  3. To make a packet, lay 2 - 24-inch sheets of foil on top of each other (double layers will help protect the ingredients from burning); generously coat the top piece with cooking spray. Spread half of the sweet potato-mixture in the center of the foil in a thin layer. Bring the short ends of foil together, fold over and pinch to seal. Pinch the seams together along the sides to seal the packet. Repeat with tow more sheets of foil and remaining sweet potato mixture.

  4. Place the packets on the hottest part of the grill and cook, switching the packets' positions on the grill halfway through cooking, 5 minutes per side. Place the steaks in the front or back and cook, turning once, about 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to plates and let rest while the packets finish cooking. Open the packets (careful of steam) and serve alongside the steaks.

  5. NOTE: If don't have a grill - pre-heat cast iron skillet on stove top to med-high, sprinkle with kosher salt, then place steaks in skillet and everything in a preheated 500 degree oven set on broil. Place it in the bottom of the oven with the same cooking time as the recipe states. OR cook foil packets in hot oven and steaks on cast iron skillet or grill pan on top of stove.
