Rest of ingredients:

  • 1 jar of pickled onions

Ideally, you should leave it marinating for 30 min.

For the sweet potato puree, peel the sweet potatoes and chop irregularly, then you must cook them in the milk. Once cooked, drain and mash, add a little milk from cooking until you get the desired texture and end up emulsifying with butter, salt and black pepper.

Finally, remove the meat from the marinade and grill over high heat, so that the pieces are browned on all sides, remove from the heat and let rest for 5 minutes.

Cut into slices about 2 cm wide superimposed one on top of the other, add a little salt flakes and the liquid from the marinade, two quenelles* of sweet potato puree and garnish with the pickled onions and pistachios.

*Quenelles: it is a way of presenting some puree-type foods, which resembles the oval or rounded shape of croquettes. You can use a soup spoon as a measure or work tool.
