Once the sweet potatoes have been in the oven for 15 min, heat a large pan with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the steaks. Fry for 3 min on each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer the steaks to a plate, season with salt and pepper and rest for 10 min. Reserve the pan.

5 Fry mushrooms

Return the pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once hot, tear the chestnut mushrooms into the pan. Fry for 5 min until starting to crisp. Once starting to crisp, add the soy sauce and butter and cook for 1 min further.
