Tangy Citrus Steaks:

– 1 teaspoon fresh ginger root, grated
– 1/4 cup orange juice
– 1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar
– 1 tablespoon honey
– 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
– 2 tablespoons green pepper sauce
– Large zip-top bag

Warm Watermelon and Bacon Salad:

– 1 shallot, thinly sliced
– 4 cups watermelon chunks
– 4 slices thick-cut bacon
– 1 tablespoon maple syrup
– 2 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar
– 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
– 1 (4-oz) bag baby spinach
– 2 oz Deli honey goat cheese


Cooking Sequence:
  • Prepare steaks and begin to marinate (5 minutes)
  • After marinating 30 minutes, prepare salad; preheat grill (55 minutes)
  • Grill steaks; serve (15 minutes)
Tangy Citrus Steaks:
  • Grate ginger; place in bowl with orange juice, honey, vinegar, salt, and pepper sauce. Whisk mixture until well blended. Trim any extra fat from edge of steaks, then cut lengthwise into 3 equal pieces; add to bag (wash hands). Pour orange juice mixture over steak and seal bag tightly; place in refrigerator for 1 hour (or overnight), turning occasionally, to marinate.
  • Preheat grill (or grill pan). Remove steaks from bag (discard remaining marinade that has been in contact with raw meat); grill 6–8 minutes, turning to brown on all sides, or until steak is at least 145°F. Let stand 5 minutes. Slice diagonally into 1/2-inch thick slices.
Warm Watermelon and Bacon Salad:
  • Cut shallot in half and slice. Cut watermelon into 1/2-inch cubes. Cut bacon into 1/4-inch pieces (wash hands).
  • Preheat large sauté pan on medium 2–3 minutes. Place bacon in pan; cook 7–8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until crispy. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain; leaving 4 tablespoons fat in pan. Stir in shallots and cook 1–2 minutes or until softened.
  • Combine syrup, vinegar, and salt then add to pan. Increase to medium-high and stir in watermelon; cook 2–3 minutes or until watermelon is hot.
  • Place spinach in large salad bowl and pour watermelon mixture over spinach; toss to lightly wilt. Crumble cheese over top; sprinkle with bacon and serve.
Aprons Advice:
  • Complete your meal with corn on the cob, potato rolls, sweet tea, and brownies for dessert.
  • We recommend marinating the steak for 1 hour, but you can reduce it to 30 minutes if you’re crunched for time.
