Watermelon Bourbon Glaze with Grilled Flank Steak

Serve this delicious entrée with mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables for an ideal fall meal.


  • 1½ cups watermelon juice (approximately 2½ cups chopped watermelon, blended)

  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoon hot sauce

  • ¼ cup bourbon (optional)

  • 2 pounds flank steak or London broil

  • ¼ teaspoon cornstarch


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, reduce watermelon juice to ⅔ cup. Toward end of reduction, add garlic. Remove from heat, cool 10 minutes then add soy sauce, brown sugar, hot sauce and bourbon. Mix well.

  2. Place watermelon-bourbon glaze in large zip-top bag. Add steak and massage to cover meat. Close bag and refrigerate 3–4 hours.

  3. Heat grill to high heat. Remove steak from plastic bag and gently shake to remove excess glaze.

  4. Grill steak 4–6 minutes; turn, then grill 4–6 minutes, depending on thickness of steak. Remove from heat. Steak should be pink in center.

  5. Allow steak to rest on platter or cutting board 10 minutes.

  6. Mix small amount of watermelon-bourbon glaze with cornstarch. In small saucepan over medium-high heat, add cornstarch mixture to remaining glaze and simmer 3–5 minutes. Reduce to medium heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.

  7. Cut flank steak on bias into thin strips. Drizzle watermelon-bourbon glaze over top.
