Beef and Beer, Armen's Epic Carne Asada

Beef and beer.  They go together like freedom and happiness.  If you've ever wanted to combine the two, listed below is one of my favorite recipes.  Ensure you have some beer on hand to enjoy while cooking, because it helps to make things better.

1/2 large onion diced
1/4 cup garlic diced
1 kiwi peeled
4 jalapenos chopped

Combine the marinade ingredients in a blender and puree.

Put the steak in a gallon ziplock bag and pour the marinade in until the meat is covered.

Now you are ready to grill.

After you have finished grilling, cut the beef into small pieces.

Eat the meat.
