For the Marinade
In a small bowl, whisk together the beer, lemon juice, oil, sriracha, brown sugar, cumin, smoked paprika, salt, black pepper, and garlic.
Place the steak in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the steak and seal the bag. Turn the steak to coat both sides.
Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour or up to 24 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
Meanwhile, for the zhoug
In a food processor, combine the cilantro, garlic, jalapenos, cumin, coriander, and salt. Process until finely chopped.
Add 2 tablespoons oil and pulse to form a loose paste, adding up to 2 tablespoons more oil if needed.
Transfer the zhoug to a glass container. Cover and store in the refrigerator until 30 minutes before serving if marinating more than 1 hour.
Cooking the Steak
Remove the steak from the marinade and place in the air-fryer; discarding the marinade. Set the air-fryer to 400°F for 8-10 minutes for medium, 145°F when tested with a meat thermometer.
Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice the steak across the grain. Serve with zhoug.
- Since much of the caloric marinade isn't consumed, actual calorie and macros are probably lower than what is listed here.
- If you're in a rush, you could also just salt and pepper the steak and make it plain, since the zhoug has a lot of flavor.
- By the same token, you could have the steak without much of a dipping sauce if you wanted to cut out a step. They go well together, but each is flavorful enough to stand on its own..
