Put your grill to use and take advantage of this weather! This amazing grilling recipe will make the perfect family dinner!


2 beef skirt or flank steaks (1 pound each)
1 bottle (12 ounces) beer
1/4 cup lime juice
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
8 spring onions or green onions
1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
Corn tortillas, minced fresh cilantro and lime wedges


Pound beef with a meat mallet to tenderize. In a large bowl, mix beer, lime juice and 2 tablespoons oil until blended. Add beef to marinade; turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut partially through onions, leaving tops intact. Drizzle with remaining oil; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Drain beef, discarding marinade; sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper. On a greased grill rack, grill steaks and onions, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°) and onions are crisp-tender, 2-4 minutes on each side.

Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.

Serve with tortillas, onions, cilantro and lime wedges.
