Beerbecue Beef Flank Steak – You’ll Have Them at “Beer”

If you thought beer was just a refreshing adult beverage
that made your friends seem more interesting and better looking, well think
again. I was simply stunned at how a glass of beer poured into a homemade
barbecue sauce created one of the most delicious grilled flank steaks I’ve ever

If you’re looking for something different for your Father’s
Day cookout, consider this super simple preparation. I’m not sure if it’s the
bitterness from the hops, or the malty notes, or just the alcohol, but
something happens to produce a tender, juicy, and very flavorful steak.

Of course, half the battle is cutting this correctly, so pay
special attention to that portion of the video. Cutting in half lengthwise will
make life easier, and then straight down across the grain will yield tender
slices of the smoky, aromatic meat. Drizzle on a little of the leftover sauce,
and you’re in for a real treat.

Any beer will do, but try to use something on the more aggressive
side if you can. Don’t forget, you’ll need to drink the other 5.33 beers, so
you might as well get something tasty. I went with Belgian ale, and it was a
beautiful thing. I hope you give this father-friendly beerbecue recipe a try
soon. Enjoy!

1 (1 1/2 lb) trimmed beef flank steak
