    Grill on all sides for 5-10 minutes, for medium.
  • 3
    1/4 cup Slab Bacon (cubed)
    1 tablespoon Olive Oil
    2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
    1/4 cup Whiskey
    1/4 cup Apple Cider
    Spalsh of Sherry Vinegar
    In a sauté pan, fry the bacon with 1 tablespoon olive oil until crisp and fat is rendered, about 5 minutes. Add the sugar, stirring to keep it from burning, and cook for 1 minute. Deglaze the pan with whiskey, once the alcohol has cooked off, and add the apple cider and a splash of sherry vinegar.

    1 Apple (cored and sliced thin)
    2 tablespoons Sherry Vinegar
    1 head Watercress
    1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
    1 Shallot (sliced)
    1/4 cup Olive Oil
    Salt and pepper
    To make the salad, combine the apples and watercress. In a small bowl, whisk together the sliced shallot, dijon mustard, sherry vinegar, a pinch of salt and pepper, and then, in a thin stream, add 1/4 cup olive oil, whisking to keep emulsified. Toss the watercress and apples in the salad.
