Ingredients

  • 1/2 Florida Grapefruit, segmented

Preparation

1. Grill or broil steak until internal temperature reaches 145° F. Meal while, place sweet potato cubes on a baking sheet and mist with cooking spray. Roast in the oven at 400° F for about 25 minutes, flipping once during cooking time, until lightly browned.
