Author Notes

This was something I dreamed up because we do a lot of flank steak and we love the South Western flavors.
The rest of the ingredients just echo the flavors of the south west.
I oddly enough do not care for steak, but love this because of the blend of flavors. —jane mcmillan

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak, cut into 4 portions
  • 6 ounces beer, Corona is excellent here
  • 1 small onion, peeled and quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 small bunch cilantro
  • 1 cup crema or sour cream for garnish
  1. Put the steak in a large gallon zip lock bag.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the crema, rotate bag a few times and set in fridge to marinate, I usually do this in the morning for supper that night. During the day I turn the bag over a few times.
  3. Pre heat grill to medium high, and grill steak to your liking.We like this with a little crema, and a side of yellow rice and refried beans.

I made this last night. Great flavors. I grilled the onions as well. Delish. We served it as a build your own taco / fajita.

I like your marinade. For the extras I would cook up for a sauce!

LOL don't tell anyone, but you can drink what doesn't go in the marinade.
