Now that warmer weather is here, cue the island music and check out the Big Island Steak Bowl recipe - one of our new favorites.

What you'll need:

  • 1 lime
  • 10 ounces skirt steak
  • 20 ounces pineapple spears
  • 2.25 ounces sliced scallion
  • 5 ounces jasmine rice
  • .19 ounce (1 teaspoon) soy sauce
  • .3 ounces sesame oil
  • .2 ounces brown Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed Red Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • Kosher or flake sea salt

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. Zest half the lime. Cut lime in half.
  2. Cook Rice: In a small saucepan, over high heat, bring 1¼ cups water and ¼ teaspoon salt to a boil. Stir in rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit, covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and gently stir in sesame oil, zest and juice from half a lime all but 1 tablespoon of the scallions. Cover and set aside.
  3. Broil Pineapple: While cooking rice, place pineapple in a single layer on a foil lined baking baking sheet and brush tops with 1 teaspoon oil. Lightly sprinkle with salt. Broil until charred in places (about 15 minutes).
  4. Seasoning Pineapple: Remove pineapple from oven and sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar and as much of the red pepper flake as you can handle. Set aside.
  5. Cook Steak: Rub a grill pan with 1 teaspoon of canola oil and place over high heat. In a small bowl, combine half the soy sauce, half the brown sugar and ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Rub mixture over steak. When grill starts to smoke, add steaks and cook to medium rare, turning once (3-4 minutes per side). Remove to a plate and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice against the grain.

To Serve:

Divide rice and pineapple between two bowls. Top with sliced steak. Squeeze lime juice over and garnish with remaining scallion and crushed red pepper and enjoy.
