A beer marinade for a tender steak

Marinades infuse meats with flavor and also help tenderize by breaking down connective tissue in the meat before cooking. Marinades are liquid-y mixes of spices and an acid, usually a citrus or a vinegar, or in this case, beer. Don't worry about serving beer-soaked steak to kids or non-drinkers — the alcohol burns off during cooking, leaving super tender meat with a great char. 

Servings: 1 1/2 pounds meat


1 cup IPA (or other bitter ale)
1/4 cup lime juice
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. In a large zip top bag combine all ingredients. 
  2. Add steak and marinate in the fridge for 4 to 8 hours. Never leave uncooked marinating meat at room temperature for more than 40 minutes.
