The sunchokes were pretty neat. The skin stayed a bit crunchy, the center got creamy, and the taste was a bit nutty. But at $6.99 a pound.... I did a pound of sunchokes and a pound of teeny potatoes (scrubbed, not cut) and they worked well together. The roasting temperature was too high for the honey mixture and we had some burned spots. So lower the temp a bit and use foil. The steak was very good. I used london broil since the store was out of skirt steak. When I tasted the marinade beforehand I was nervous. But the grilled version was great. Make sure to do the salting step in between marinade and grill. Unless you need low sodium you can skip and still get great flavor. I would make this again and double what we need in order to have sliced steak for sandwiches and salads in the following days.
