Bring 3/4 cup water to a boil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green beans; cover, reduce heat to medium-low and steam for 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

Cut the kernels from the cobs and transfer to the bowl with the green beans. Meanwhile, whisk yogurt, lime juice, onion, 1 Tbsp. oil, honey, garlic, and 1/4 tsp. each pepper and salt in a small bowl. Combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and the remaining 1 tsp. ground pepper and 3/4 tsp. salt in a small bowl. Preheat grill to medium-high Grill the sweet potatoes until fork-tender, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

Add the sweet potatoes to the bowl with the green beans and corn. Divide the steak among the plates and drizzle with the remaining 1/4 cup yogurt dressing.
