DIRECTIONS

  • Slice onion paper-thin.
  • Peel garlic clove and put it through the garlic press.
  • Combine all marinade ingredients and stir well.
  • Pour marinade over steaks. Marinade 4-6 hours, turning steaks periodically. Do NOT over-marinade because beer marinades make the steak bitter if soaked too long.
  • Preheat your grill. You want a medium-high heat -- enough to get some good sizzle. There's no beating the flavor you get from a charcoal grill, but a gas grill will do the job. I do NOT recommend trying this on an electric, tabletop grill.
  • Grill 7-10 minutes per side or until you reach the desired doneness.
  • As you cook, drop a few bits of the onions from the marinade onto the coals or burner-covers to make an aromatic smoke which flavors the meat in a way really sets this recipe apart from other beer marinades.
  • The marinade will have tenderized the steak significantly, but if you cook it well-done it will almost certainly be tough anyway so I recommend medium-rare to medium.
