The creator commented:

No, I don't think it's going to taste good but I'm curious of how it's going to taste.

How she made it?

She cut a filet medallion-sized chunk from a whole watermelon.

Then, she marinated it and seasoned it like she would do for a steak. The watermelon filet went into a Ziploc bag with seasoning like olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, garlic powder, and other seasonings.

After continuing the preparation of the watermelon steak, she went on in saying:

Watermelon really soaks up any flavors...this is going to be really interesting.

She marinated it for around 15 minutes.

After the marinating process was complete, she pulled the watermelon from the Ziploc bag and seasoned it more, using steak rub.

To a hot skillet, she added cooking oil. Then, she placed the watermelon on the skillet. When it finished cooking, she prepared a wine reduction sauce to drizzle atop and she tasted it.

What did she think?

It's not bad but, it's weird.

What do you think about watermelon steak?
