Kona Flat Iron Steaks

Flat iron steak from the Meyers Cattle Company is the star of this dish. Marinated in the Koko Brown Ale from the Kona Brewing Company,  Island Teriyaki by Soy Vay, and crushed pineapple for at least 24 hours, the steaks grill up remarkably tender and tasty. The Island Teriyaki is probably the most delicious teriyaki marinade I’ve ever had.

By the way, the leftover steak makes a killer taco with jack cheese and mango habanero salsa…trust me.
