    • 2 pounds flank steak, cut against the grain in 1 inch strips
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 cup gluten-free dark or amber beer
    • ¾ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
    • 3 tablespoons Sriracha or similar red pepper hot sauce
    • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 3 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 3 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
    • 3 teaspoons paprika
    • 2 teaspoons salt

    Bamboo skewers, pre-soaked.

    If you're using something other than original Sriracha Rooster sauce, then be sure to work out the sugar-spice-vinegar-salt balance.

    Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl.

    Place flank steak strips in a resealable plastic bag or glass container with a lid.

    Pour marinade over and stir until coated. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

    About a half hour before grilling remove steak from marinade; discard the marinade.

    Slide strips onto pre-soaked bamboo skewers. Grill on barbecue to desired doneness. Serve with gluten-free beer and your favorite chips for a great snack.

    Or, if you're feeling bold, serve it with this spicy green chile dipping sauce.
