Marrakech Grilled Steak and Sweet Potatoes

.I got this recipe from
 the Eating Well magazine
the only thing I didn't do is the onion
 because I didn't have one on hand

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 ounces strip steak, trimmed and cut into 2 portions
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and very thinly sliced
1 small red onion, halved and very thinly sliced
2 teaspoons canola oil
Slice sweet potato thinly

Preheat grill to high.

Combine allspice, cumin, ginger, salt, cinnamon, coriander
 and cayenne in a medium bowl. 
Sprinkle steaks with 2 1/4 teaspoons of the spice mixture. 
Add sweet potato and onion to the bowl along with oil; toss to coat.
Generously coat the top piece with cooking spray. 
Spread the sweet potato mixture in the center of the foil in a thin layer. 

Bring the short ends of foil together,
 fold over and pinch to seal.
Pinch the seams together along the sides to seal the packet.

Place the packet on the hottest part of the grill and cook,
 turning once, about 5 minutes per side. 
Cook the steaks, turning once, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.
Transfer to plates and let rest while the packets finish cooking.
Open the packets (be careful of steam) and serve alongside the steaks.
