Beer Soaked Beef $6.56

Got your attention?  Mine too - actually, Joe's more than mine, but it sounds like a great dish - and probably something Jillian would approve of as I got it from the Weight Watchers site a million moons ago.  I thought it would be good thinly sliced and served over a bed of romaine lettuce - with a ranch dressing maybe if you don't like the beer marinade? 

Anyway, with no further delay:

Beer-Soaked Beef

12 oz. beer .50
2 tbsp olive oil .20
1 large garlic clove .10
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice .10
1 tbsp brown sugar .10
1 tsp salt.02
1/2 tsp whole cloves.05
1 1/2 lbs raw lean flank steak - washed & patted dry.$4.49
romaine lettuce 1 lb $1.00
in a 1 gallon ziplock type bag, combine beer, oil, garlic, lemon, sugar, salt, & cloves - zip and shake to mix:  add steak and marinate in frig, turning 1 or 2 times, for somewhere between 2 and 24 hours.

Heat Broiler or grill (times for broiling, adjust accordingly for grill) Remove meat from marinade (DO NOT DISCARD MARINADE) and broil on a "grill pan" for 3 1/2 minutes per side for medium rare longer for more-done meat.  Remove meat from broiler to a plate, loosely cover with foil and let stand for about 10 minutes.

Weightwatches said this is 6 "points", so that means somewhere around 325 calories for this entree - a fav. dressing from the frig will clearly cost you more calories!

Meanwhile, place grill pan (if you used one) or a frying pan on stovetop over high heat - carefully pour marinade heated pan, bring to a boil and cook until all alcohol burns off, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Slice steak thinly and serve with sauce over a bed of romaine lettuce.
