10. Eyes on the Prize: Achieving the Perfectly Grilled Watermelon Steaks

Giving Your Watermelon Steaks Some Extra Heat

Grilling watermelon steaks can take your summer barbecues to a whole new level. To get the most succulent, flavorful results, you’ll want to use a two-part process – first, seasoning the watermelon, and second, grilling it to perfection. Here are the steps to follow:

  • Start off by drizzling some olive oil and balsamic vinegar on your watermelon steaks, then sprinkle on a light layer of your favorite seasoning.
  • Heat your grill to a low to medium heat. No need to turn it up high – remember, too much heat can quickly turn your watermelon steaks into mush.
  • Be sure to generously apply a layer of oil or cooking spray to the grilling surface – this will help to prevent sticking and keep your watermelon steaks from burning.
  • Place your watermelon steak onto the grill and leave it to sear for a few minutes, flipping occasionally. You’ll know it’s perfectly cooked when it’s lightly charred and has a slightly charred smoky aroma.

Serving Up succulent Watermelon Steak

Once your watermelon steaks have reached their desired level of doneness, take them off of the grill and let them cool for a bit. Then, all that’s left to do is to enjoy them! Try serving them with a side of your favorite grilled vegetables, or with a creamy avocado sauce. No matter what you choose, you’re sure to end up with a delicious and unique summer meal!
