    Applejack Cake, Skirt Steak and Apples!

    Got not only an AJ cake but a delicious looking recipe for Skirt Steak and Apples! Find the recipe below.

    Applejack's Skirt steak and "Bucked-up" Apples

    Serves 4 or 12 strips and 8 apple half's

    Skirt Steak

    1 lb. of Skirt Steak

    2 cups of Apple Juice

    1 teaspoon of cinnamon

    1 teaspoon of nutmeg

    1 teaspoon of chili powder

    Bucked-up Apples

    4 apples, cored and cut in half

    4 strips of bacon cut in half

    2oz of Crumbled blue cheese or Gorgonzola

    Juice of 1/2 a lemon

    1. Place Skirt Steak in a 4x4 container or a large plastic bag and combine the apple juice and spices to create the marinade. Pour the marinade in the container or bag and let the steak marinate for a minimum of 4 hours or over night in a ziplock plastic bag

    2. While the steak is marinating, take the cored ,cut out apple halfs and poke 6 small indents on the inside part of the apple slice. (These would work as an access point for the bacon fat to seep into the apple). Squeeze the lemon juice on to the apples to prevent browning and store them in the refrigerator for later.

    3. Prepare and heat up your grill 15-30 minutes prior to grilling. Refer to the instructions in your grill instruction manual for proper heating.

    4. Once the steak is done marinating, remove the steak from the container and shake out any excess marinade to prevent flare ups on the grill. Set it aside on a separate plate until your ready to grill.

    5. Grill the steak on both sides until the steak has a deep, caramelized brown color or until desired doneness. Once the doneness of the steak has achieve, place the steak on the side and let it rest at room temperature for 3-5 minutes for the juices inside the steak to lock in the moisture.

    6. For the apples, cook the bacon in a pan until the bacon to released the fat. Remove the bacon on the side when bacon is fully cooked. Place the strips on a plate lined with a paper towel.

    7. Place each apple skin side down on a baking sheet and place the bacon strips in the middle of the apple slice. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the apple (as little or as much as you want).

    8. Set your oven broiler to medium or to medium high and broil your apples until the cheese melts and the bacon is crispy. (About 5 minutes, depending on your oven)

    9. Ounce the apples are done, cut the skirt steak into strips and serve with the apples.

    You can also make the apples separately to make a hearty appetizer or just cook the steak to make a nice beef sandwich.
