FEED YOUR FACE: Beer Steak

I really like this one.
Get your favorite cut of steak, you need it about 1-1/2 inches thick.
You'll need (per steak):
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/8 teaspoon lemon crystals (sour salt or citric acid)
3/4 teaspoon medium ground pepper
canola oil or vegetable oil
2 bottles of a high malt/low hops beer, like Coors Killian's Red

An hour before cooking, combine the salt, lemon crystals, and pepper.
Rub that on each steak (both sides). Then brush lightly with oil, and then with beer on both sides.
Preheat oven to broil, or heat up your grill on high.

Broiling: You want to place steaks about 6 to 9 inches from the heat. Brush steaks one more time with beer, then put them in the oven to broil.
While the steaks are cooking, baste them several times with the beer. You want to create a thin coating on the meat.
Turn the steaks and continue cooking and basting on the other side 'til the steaks are done to your liking.

Grilling: Turn down the grill to medium to medium high.
Brush the steaks again with beer before you put them on the grill.
Baste the steaks several times more with beer. Turn them over and continue basting with beer as you cook them 'til the steaks are done to your liking.

Throw in some baked taters or open up a can of your favorite veggies.
You now have a great meal. Oh yeah, the other can of beer is for the cook to have, while cooking.
Also, some beers are a natural tenderizer. (Could this be why I'm soft around the middle?)

So, there you have it. Enjoy, and FEED YOUR FACE!
