Tequila Beef Steaks
4 New York strip steaks (each 8 to 10 oz., cut 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick), fat trimmed

1/2 cup Tequila

2 tbsp Olive oil

1 tbsp Pepper, freshly ground

2 tsp Lemon peel, grated

1 Garlic clove, pressed or minced


With a damp paper towel, wipe steaks; put meat in a 1-gallon plastic food bag. Add tequila, oil, pepper, lemon peel, and garlic; seal bag, and turn to mix seasonings. Set bag in a bowl; chill at least 1 hour or up to 1 day; turn bag over occasionally. Drain steaks and place on a grill 4 to 6 inches above a solid bed of hot coals (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds, or set gas barbeque at this heat). Turn steaks to brown evenly; for medium-rare (cut to test), cook 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to plates; season to taste with Salt.
