Beer Marinated Grilled Skirt Steak

Dads love two things: grilling good meat and beer. Father’s Day is this weekend, and there’s no better time to cook up something delicious for a Father’s Day dinner. This beer-marinated grilled skirt steak recipe is sure to impress even the most discerning of dads, so break out the charcoal and get grilling!


  • 1 Orange, thinly sliced with peel
  • 1/2 Onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 Garlic cloves, halved and mashed
  • 6 Eight ounce skirt steaks
  • 1/2 Cup soy sauce
  • 1 Cup beer (read below)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


SY Skirt Steak

  1. In a wide, shallow glass baking dish, scatter half of the orange slices, half of the onion slices and half of the garlic pieces on the bottom of the dish.
  2. Sprinkle the steak all over with salt and pepper and put in the dish on top of the orange and onion slices.
  3. Scatter the remaining orange, onion and garlic over the steak and pour in the beer and soy sauce.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 1 hour at room temperature or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
  5. Set your grill on medium-high heat.
  6. Remove the meat from the marinade.
  7. Grill the steak about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Grill less for rare or leave on longer for medium-well done.

A Note on Beer Selection

Beer marinades are a relatively new method that’s really taken off in recent years. The type of beer you choose can have a significant effect on the meat you’re cooking. Too light a beer such as pilsner, lager, and pale ale add little to no flavor to steaks and chops; but at the other end of the spectrum, heavier, darker beers like porter or stout add an unpleasant, smoky flavor to the meat. Aim for a middle ground between the two such as hefeweizen, amber ales, or extra-special bitters (ESB), which are ideal for cooking steak, and can add notes of nutty flavors, light citrus, and even malt.
