For the Steak:

  1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Place the steak in a zip top bag and pour marinade over it. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, but up to 8 hours.
  2. Preheat a grill to high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the marinade.
  3. Cook the steak for 3-4 minutes on each side or until it reaches your desired level of doneness.
  4. Set steak aside and allow to rest.

For the Avocado-Cilantro Sauce:

  1. Combine avocado, cilantro, lime juice and honey in a food processor. Add 2 tablespoons of water and process until smooth, adding the additional water if needed.
  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

For the Bowl:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until softening and browned.
  2. Add the sweet potato noodles to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes more for al dente.
  3. Divide the sweet potato mixture into bowls. Slice the steak against the grain and portion out. Add the arugula and sliced avocado to each bowl.
  4. Drizzle the avocado-cilantro sauce on top. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.


Many grocery stores sell sweet potato noodles already spiralized for you. If you can’t find them, butternut squash is a great quick alternative if you’re not feeling up to using your spiralizer on a sweet potato.
