Grilled Pineapple on the Big Green Egg







We have made this a number of times and it is always a favorite side to go along with steak.
 Frequently requested and a nice juxtaposition to the normal savory flavors of a steak and potato. A splash of citrus in a dreary world.

Research:

Found this recipe and follow it more or less. Check out the skinny taste site here.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon olive oil



Plan:

Heat the Egg to 500-600 degrees and plan to cook these as you are searing the steak - cook it for about 2 minutes a side.

Execution:

First slice up a pineapple. Don't worry about coring it. Just slice it up in even about 1/2" thick slices



Then whisk up the sauce and mop it on one side (save the second mop for the grill)



Sear them at 500-600 degrees. Place them mop side down and go ahead and mop the tops while the other side sears. then flip. and cook 2 more minutes


Then pull them off and serve them warm





Verdict:

We love these. Nice side to go with a great steak and potato meal. A refreshing splash of citrus.
