It’s summer time and that means BBQ season is on!  And what better way to show your friends who masters the grill than by celebrating it with a steak and a couple of ice cold beers?

Brava Steak

Brava Steak with Lazy Salsa

Serves 6



·6 garlic cloves, unpeeled

·4 serrano or 2 jalapeño chiles

·¼ cup fresh lime juice

·2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil, plus more for steaks

·1 ½  teaspoons salt

·6 ribeye or strip beef steaks, 1 inch thick and about 8 ounces each


Lazy Salsa:

·1 jar (16 ounces) Jalapeño Cilantro Salsa

·½ cup Bohemia Beer

·Salt to taste



1.      Roast garlic cloves and chiles in an ungreased skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until soft and blackened in spots, usually 5 to 10 minutes for chiles and 10 to 15 minutes for garlic. Cool, and then peel garlic.

2.      Puree garlic, chiles, lime juice and 2 tablespoons oil in a blender or food processor.  Season with salt. Pour into a shallow dish and add steaks. Let marinate steaks for 1 hour at room temperature or 2 hours in the refrigerator.

3.      For the lazy salsa, heat the beer and salsa in a saucepan to a simmer. Cook gently to concentrate slightly, about 3 minutes. Cool and season with salt.

4.      Prepare a charcoal grill or heat a gas to hot. Brush the steaks with oil. Grill the steaks about three or four minutes per side for medium rare.  Serve with lazy salsa.
