Flank steak is already quite tender (as long as you don’t over cook it) but his really makes it even more yummy!  Be sure to use a dark beer or an ale but not one that has a great deal of hops because the hops will make the food taste bitter.    Enjoy!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com

Beer Marinated Flank Steak

2 (16 ounce) flank steak pieces

1/4 cup dark beer

2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1-2  teaspoon garlic powder

  1. Preheat grill for high heat.
  2. Use a fork to poke holes all over the surface of the steaks, and place steaks in a large baking dish. In a bowl, mix together beer, teriyaki sauce, and brown sugar. Pour sauce over steaks, and let sit about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 the seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder; set aside for 10 minutes. Turn steaks over, sprinkle with remaining seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and continue marinating for 10 more minutes.
  3. Remove steaks from marinade. Pour marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook for several minutes (it will thicken up a bit)
  4. Lightly oil the grill grate with Pam Spray for grills . Grill steaks for 5 minutes per side, or to your preferred meat color, but remember flank steak will become very tough if you need your steak to be well done.   During the last few minutes of grilling, baste steaks with the boiled marinade to enhance the flavor.    Enjoy !!!!

There are so many different beers you can enjoy for your marinade.  If you use a beer with fruit, you may want to reduce the quantity of sugar in the recipe.
