1 Tbsp Mint finely chopped
1 Tspn Lemon Juice
Pepper to taste

Place your watermelon, sliced onion, mint, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix all of the ingredients together very lightly so you don’t crush the watermelon.

Nothing wraps up a steak like a delicious side. Corn has always been a classic side for a steak, but lets try amping it up a little bit. If you’ve never experimented with corn… let me blow your mind.

Buttery Bacon Corn


One pack of frozen yellow corn or sweet white corn

2 Tbsp of Butter

4 slices of bacon

First, cook your bacon until it is crispy. Once it is crispy, set your bacon on a paper towel to let it drain off.

Second, Boil your corn in water for about 3 minutes, until it is just about fully cooked.

Next, strain off the excess water, and add some butter into the corn. Stir until it is melted.

Next, crumble the bacon into the corn and stir it in. That is it. Serve up the corn next to your favorite steak, and you’re in for an excellent meal!
