Preparation Time:  7 min
Cooking Time:  14 min
Level of Difficulty:  Easy

This meat is wonderfully tender and so well-flavored. Marinate it in the morning before you go to work and just pop it in the oven when you get home.

  • 12 oz beer
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove(s), 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 raw 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 3 1/2 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.
  • Slice steak thinly and serve with sauce. Yields about 4 ounces of steak per serving.
  • *You can also cook this recipe on the grill and reduce the sauce in a saucepan on the stove.


  1. Can't say much to the point system, but the recipe looks great [always love beef and beer combinations.] I'd probably cheat and make it in the slow cooker though.
    Best wishes

  2. I don't always stick to the points exactly but I love the recipes! It sounds really good. I think i'm going to make it tomorrow for dinner!!!


I love comments!!! I will try to reply to your comments. But please be patient. I have three kiddos in the house and sometimes I am a tad preoccupied.
