Two nights ago, I cooked the much anticipated beer soaked beef. Austin’s been eyeing this recipe because of the beer; I’ve been wanting it because I love beef. The makings of this dinner actually started 3 nights with the marinade.
|12 oz beer|
|2 Tbsp olive oil|
|1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed|
|2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice|
|1 Tbsp dark brown sugar|
|1 tsp table salt|
|1/8 tsp whole cloves|
|1 1/2 pound uncooked lean flank steak, 1-inch thick, washed and patted dry|
- In a 9- X 13-inch glass baking dish, combine beer, oil, garlic, lemon juice, sugar, salt and cloves; add steak. Cover dish and marinate in refrigerator, turning once or twice, at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.
- Place a grill pan in broiler; preheat broiler to high. Remove meat from marinade and broil about 5 minutes per side for medium rare, or longer until desired doneness.* Remove meat from broiler and place meat on a plate; loosely cover with aluminum foil and let stand for about 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place grill pan on stovetop over high heat; carefully pour marinade onto grill pan. Bring to a boil (beer will foam) and cook until all alcohol burns off, about 5 to 7 minutes.
- Thinly slice steak against the grain and serve with sauce. Yields about 4 ounces of steak per serving. 6 points per serving.
