Serves 4


  • 1 lb. sirloin or strip steak (about 1" thick)
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 small seedless watermelon (about 3 lb.)
  • 1 c. fresh mint leaves torn
  • 1 c. fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • Chopped, roasted unsalted peanuts, for serving


  1. Heat grill to medium high. Season steak with 1/2 tsp. of salt and pepper and grill to desired doneness, 6-8 min per side for medium rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, oil, honey and a pinch of salt and pepper each. Fold in onions and tomatoes.
  3. Cut the watermelon into 1/2 inch-thick triangles and cut off their rinds. Brush lightly with oil, then grill until lightly charred, 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to serving plates.
  4. Fold the herbs into the tomato mixture, then spoon on top of the watermelon. Slice the steak, divide among the plates and sprinkle with peanuts, if desired
  5. Enjoy!
