Ingredients

  • 585ml light beer
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 red onion
  • 1tsp ground black pepper
  • 9 to 1.3kg flank steak
  • 2tbsp brown sugar

Instructions:

Combine 2 cups of the beer, the lime juice, lemon juice, garlic, onion, and measured pepper in a large, nonreactive bowl and mix. Add the flank steak, cover, place in the refrigerator, and marinate at least 30 minutes or overnight.

When ready to cook the meat, heat a grill to high (about 500°F). Remove the meat from the marinade (reserving the marinade juices), pat it dry, and season well with salt.

Transfer the marinade to a medium saucepan, add the remaining 1/2 cup beer, and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, skim off any foam or impurities that come to the surface, and let the mixture reduce by half, about 20 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a heatproof bowl, mix in the brown sugar, and season well with salt and pepper.

Place the meat on the grill and cook to medium, about 7 to 10 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. If serving as a main, slice the steak against the grain into 1-inch strips; if serving as a filling for tacos or burritos, coarsely chop. Place in a serving dish and cover with the reduced marinade juices.
