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 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 ribeye or strip beef steaks, 1 inch thick and about 8 ounces each

Lazy Salsa:

  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, 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 3 or 4 minutes per side for medium rare.  Serve with lazy salsa.
