026 - Big BBQ Steak w/ Sweet Potato Curly Fries


“Did you say steak? I think I heard steak. Damn straight you did. Nothing screams “I’m a manly, man” like a big hunk of BBQ’d meat and some fried vegetables. I can’t really claim that this is super healthy, but its still better than eating a cheeseburger (probably).”

Sweet Potato Curly Fries

I’m not going to make you click multiple links to where we have the Curly Fries posted but in case you haven’t figured this out, the Curly Fries can in fact be made on their own and are posted in our accompaniments section.

  • 100g Sweet Potato Ribbons
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil



If you don’t own a BBQ you could struggle…maybe email us and we will start a gofundme page for you, or use a fry pan on the stove (results not guaranteed).

  1. Now once you get past the regular 200-250g steak, cooking becomes a bit of an exercise. This is where we separate the men from the boys.
  2. Prepare your steak by rubbing some salt and cracked pepper into it, if you’re feeling fancy maybe a drizzle of olive oil.
  3. Turn your BBQ flat and grill sides on, the flat side needs to be nice and hot, the grill can stay on medium. 
  4. Slap the steak down on the flat side and let it sear for 2 mins, flip it over and do the same, you can turn the flat side off now to preserve precious gas. After 2 mins on each side move her over onto the grill to cook.
  5. I will generally give the steak about 3 mins on each side on the grill, this should be long enough to get some nice grill lines into it and keep the meat cooked just right (rare/medium rare).
  6. Hopefully you have heated the oil up for the Curly Fries already and have them underway also, if not, hop to it!
  7. Once you are happy with how cooked your steak is, put it to one side for a few mins to rest while you sort the curly fries out and serve.

Sweet Potato Curly Fries

  1. Use a vegetable peeler to peel slices of sweet potato, the longer and fatter you can make them the easier they are to use (that’s what she said.)
  2. Once you have peeled the entire sweet potato heat the oil in a frying pan and lay the strips in the pan, try to keep them from touching too much.
  3. Gently pan fry them until they start to turn golden brown, then remove and put them on a drip tray in the oven on a low heat.
  4. Repeat until you have cooked them all.
