Served open-faced, this plant-powered recipe is inspired by one of our All-Star Fresh Prep beef sandwiches! We've turned it plant-based with steak-spice seasoned meaty portobello mushrooms piled on to toasted focaccia with cilantro and parsley green sauce and a touch of tangy red wine vinegar. Breadcrumb-dusted sweet potato fries are the perfect side for this elevated steak-less sandwich, served with a side of chimichurri aioli for dipping.

Cooking Directions


Tip: Chop your herbs very finely for the chimichurri!


Cook Sweet Potatoes

  • Turn oven on to 425°F.
  • Wash sweet potato and cut into ½ inch thick fries.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Toss sweet potato in medium bowl with breadcrumbs and 1 tbsp. olive oil.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Spread sweet potato in a single layer on baking sheet and cook for 20–25 minutes until tender with golden edges.

Cook Portobellos

  • Wash portobello mushrooms, remove stem, and scrape gills out with the tip of a spoon.
  • Slice into ½ inch thick slices.
  • Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add portobellos to skillet and season to taste with spice blend and salt. Toss gently to coat.
  • Cook for 6–8 minutes until tender, then set aside on a plate, covering with foil to keep warm.

Prepare Chimichurri

  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Caramelize Shallots

  • Peel and slice shallot into ⅛ inch slices.

  • Season to taste with salt.

Toast Foccacia

  • Cut Foccacia in half.
  • Place in the oven on the top rack, insides facing up.
  • Bake for 3–4 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
