Fabulous Freelancer Foodie Recipe: Beer-Barbecued Steak

This beer-barbecued steak recipe is a wonderfully zesty complement to a baked potato, corn, a salad, or all three!

Note: the original various of this recipe appeared in the Betty Crocker cookbook, Best Recipes for Grilling.


  • 1 bottle (7 ounces) of beer (brand is according to preference)
  • ¼ cup chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon-style mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon of red pepper sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon of liquid smoke
  • 1 coarsely chopped small onion
  • 1 crushed clove of garlic
  • 3lbs of beef sirloin steak that is 1-inch thick.


  1. Set the steak aside in the refrigerator, and mix all of the other ingredients together.
  2. Heat the ingredients in a saucepan until boiling.
  3. Reduce the heat, and allow the mixture to simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  4. Once the mixture is ready, brush it on the steak.
  5. Cover and grill the steak 4 to 5 inches from medium coals, turning the steak 2 or 3 times and brushing it 4 or 5 times with the mixture until it reaches the chosen level of doneness (25-30 minutes for medium).
  6. Cut the steak into serving-sized pieces, and serve it with the remaining mixture as a beer sauce.
