The three-pepper spice rub gives the steak wonderful complexity.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Combine 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, white pepper, and red pepper in a small bowl. Score steak with a sharp knife in a diamond pattern on both sides (1/4 inch deep). Lightly coat steak with cooking spray; sprinkle steak evenly with pepper mixture. Arrange steak on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes; cut steak across the grain into thin slices.

Step 3

Arrange green onions on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes or until slightly charred and tender.

Step 4

Combine watermelon, mint, juice, oil, chile, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.

Step 5

Place tortillas on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 1 minute on each side or until lightly charred. Arrange onions down the center of each tortilla; divide steak, salsa, and cheese evenly among tortillas.

This is a very interesting mix of flavors, albeit a bit spicy with the (serrano) pepper.

This recipe has really good flavors, especially the watermelon salsa. However, this is very difficult to eat as instructed: the corn tortillas fall apart due to the liquid of the watermelon (I drained as much liquid as I could before serving), the chewiness of the steak, and the difficulty of biting through the grilled green onions. With some tweaking, this will make a very good dish!
