This recipe was adapted from the August issue of Bon Appetit magazine.
This was the first time I have pickled watermelon. I can’t say I was a big fan. The flavors were a little overwhelming. Too much vinegar, I think. Anyway, the pork was delicious. I went against the traditional “purist” way and used my gas grill. I think the Grill Gods were forgive me, because I got a near-perfect char on the pork and the overnight marinade gave it great flavor. The flash-fried shallot on top may have been the best part!
Happy cooking and eating!
