Grilled steak and sweet potato fries. Yes, please! We hope that you like meal prep bowls as much as we do. The other day while we were cooking up a bunch of holiday recipes, we made this beast bowl for lunch.
The beast bowl concept happened a little bit by accident.
I've always been a weekly food prep master. Even though that is true, I was still finding it hard to get enough servings of fresh veggies. I was getting bored. Every week I would cook up a big batch of delicious protein. I would usually do two different proteins for some variety. But then my veggies were stuck on a repeat of - green beans, broccoli, or cauliflower. A foodie cannot live like this! I needed more flavor in my life!
I did a post almost a year ago now highlighting my Thai Chicken Meatballs and just happened to call it a Beast Bowl. This got me to thinking about how I could turn this veggie and protein-packed bowl of deliciousness into a meal prep solution. Et Voila! The Beast Bowl was born! My next Beast Bowl was a Greek Burger Beast Bowl. Now only a few months later, we have a fantastic lineup of Beast Bowls on the blog - with a new one coming out each week.

Steak and Sweet Potato Power Bowl

- 2 avocados
- ¼ red onion
- 2 cups tomatoes
- Rub steak with salt and pepper.
- Place in a shallow glass dish (or a plastic bag).
- Add oil and balsamic vinegar.
- Toss to coat and let marinate for about 2 hours. Steak should be at room temperature for at least an hour before you grill it.

- While steak in marinating, preheat oven to 425℉
- Cut sweet potatoes into fries.
- Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Drizzle with oil, salt and toss to coat.
- Spread evenly on the baking sheet.
