Squatters Juicy IPA-Marinated Steak Tacos
2 large navel oranges, juiced
6 oz Squatters Juicy IPA
3 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 pinch red pepper flakes
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 lbs flank steak*
12-16 corn or flour tortillas
Freshly squeezed limes, for serving
Serve with your favorite toppings – salsa, avocado, sour cream, cilantro, tomatoes (DM Beer Belly for their cilantro cream recipe)
Add all of the marinade ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well to combine. Place flank steak in a large resealable plastic bag and pour in marinade. Marinate in refrigerator for 1-4 hours, flipping at least once. Don’t marinate much longer than this – the beer and the fruit juice will make the meat mushy.
Remove steak from fridge 30 minutes before cooking. Heat a grill over high heat (you can also use the broiler). Grill steak for 4-5 minutes per side, or until an internal thermometer reads 130-135° F for medium rare.
Let steak rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes. Slice against the grain, squeeze some fresh lime over top, and season with a little salt. Serve atop warm tortillas with your favorite toppings.
* Skirt steak would work well too. Just adjust cooking times accordingly.
