4 Certified Hereford Beef strip steaks
2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
1 fresh spring Thyme
1 fresh spring Rosemary
2 fresh large sweet potatoes
2 cups corn oil
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
Rainbow coleslaw mix
1 cup mayonaise
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
Sea salt
Cracked black pepper


  • Potatoes
    Clean the sweet potatoes under cold water. Pat dry. Cut the sweet potatoes at a long angle to create potato strips. In a large pot or deep fryer, heat the corn oil until hot. (Check to see the heat by feeling with your hand over the pot or by dropping a piece of potato.) Fry the potatoes until golden brown and immediately season with salt. Place on paper towel until the excess oil is absorbed. Set in a bowl for later.
  • Coleslaw
    In large bowl, mix the mayo, apple cider vinegar, sugar, 2 tablespoons of salt and 2 tablespoons of cracked pepper. Add the rainbow slaw and fold in until coated. Taste to see if it’s to you liking. Adjust if needed. Cover bowl and place in fridge for one hour to allow the flavors to come together.
  • Steak
    Remove steaks from the fridge and let rest for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Press the parmesan on the steaks on one side. In a large saute pan, add the thyme and rosemary and heat on medium heat until the essence of the herbs hit the air. Add the butter and oil and flavor the pan. Remove the herbs.
  • Add the steaks to the with parmesan side down first. Cook until the parmesan melts and starts to crust up. If the parmesan sticks to the pan, it means it’s not done – wait until it releases easly. Flip and cook the other sides.
  • Cook the steaks to a medium temp. Remove from pan and let rest for 5 minutes. Repeat method for all steaks. You can serve the steak whole or slice, served on top of the Cole Slaw and top with the sweet potato strips.
