Scallions get cooked whole with the steaks and take on the rich flavors of lamb. Remember to smear the plates with yogurt before topping with vegetables and lamb so you get some creamy and tangy goodness in every bite. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

What you'll need: 2 medium sweet potatoes 1½ tsp crushed red pepper fresh cilantro 7 oz 2 % Greek yogurt 2 limes 1 lamb leg steak (boneless or bone-in) 6 scallions coarse salt olive oil freshly ground black pepper

  1. Roast vegetables Toss sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet with crushed red pepper and 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt. Roast sweet potato until golden and tender, 25–30 minutes.
