Badlands Grilled Mojo Beef

Bringing a little taste of Cuba to Montana, this recipe for a mojo beef using a variation of a traditional marinade with the addition of the Badlands Extra Pale Ale from Meadowlark Brewing. After marinating overnight, the flat iron steaks were sliced across the grain and grilled on the Big Green Egg. We served the soft and tasty beef with grilled plantains and mojo onions.

In Cuban cooking, mojo is a sauce made with garlic, olive oil, pepper, and citrus juice.
