    I saw today that it will air on Sunday. I bet once the show airs you will be able to print the recipes and hopefully that one will be included.

      I just now saw a commercial for that show. That didn't even look like the Aaron on the foodnetwork star show. Did he wear earrings on the finale show??

          Show: The Next Food Network Star
          Episode: Finale

          1 (12-ounce) rib-eye steak
          Jerk seasoning, recipe follows
          Plantains, recipe follows
          Collard Greens, recipe follows

          Preheat grill or grill pan on high heat.
          Rub jerk seasoning on steak. Place steak in a plastic bag to marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator. After marinating for 1 hour, remove steak from refrigerator and let sit for 15 minutes. Grill steak for 12 minutes (6 minutes on each side). Remove from grill with tongs and let rest for 8 to 12 minutes. Serve with plantains and collard greens.

          Jerk seasoning:
          1 tablespoon allspice
          1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
          1/4 cup light brown sugar
          1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
          1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
          1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
          2 teaspoons salt
          1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
          2 tablespoons canola oil

          In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients with 2 tablespoons of canola oil.

          Canola oil
          1 ripe plantain
          4 ounces butter
          1/4 cup finely chopped fresh scallions
          1/4 cup honey
          1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

          Preheat a medium frying pan and coat with canola oil. Slice plantains on bias, then saute until brown. Mix in butter and scallions. Then remove from the heat. Stir in honey and parsley with a large spoon.

          Collard greens:
          12 ounces fresh collard greens, coarsely chopped
          1 tablespoon butter
          1/4 cup finely diced onion
          Crushed red pepper flakes
          1/4 cup chicken stock
          Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

          Wash collard greens thoroughly. In a medium stock pot, place collards in hot water for 3 minutes, remove and drain.
          In a large saute pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter, then add onions and crushed red pepper, saute. Then add collards and chicken stock to saute pan. Cook on high heat, stirring occasionally for 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
