Cook Time

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small white onion, minced
  • 1 12-oz bottle amber or nut-brown beer (not dark beer)
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 lb flank steak, trimmed
  • High-heat cooking oil (such as grape seed or safflower), as needed
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine garlic, onion, beer, mustard, soy sauce and rosemary. Transfer steak to a large resealable bag or container and pour marinade over steak, turning to coat. Transfer to refrigerator to marinate overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. Heat a grill to medium-high and brush grates with oil. Remove steak from marinade, discarding any remaining marinade. Season steak with salt and pepper. Grill steak for about 5 to 6 minutes per side, turning once, for medium-rare doneness, or 7 to 8 minutes per side for medium doneness. (NOTE: Test with an instant-read thermometer, steak should register 145°F in thickest part.) Rest for 5 minutes, covered, before serving. To serve, slice across the grain.
