tbsp. olive oil
garlic clove, peeled and smashed
tbsp lemon juice
tbsp brown sugar
tsp whole cloves
pounds 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, for at least 2 hours up to 24 hours. Use broiler or grill to cook about 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare, longer until desired doneness. Remove meat and cover with alumninum foil and let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, pour remaining marinade in a sauce pan, bring to a boil and cook until all the alcohol burns off, about 5 to 7 minutes. Thinly slice steak against the grain and serve with sauce.
