Beer Marinated Flank Steak

There is no better cut of meat for marinades than flank steak. Flank steak is an awesome cut of meat. And an excuse to buy a 6 pack and steak? Count me in!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins


  • 2 Flank Steaks
  • 12 ounces dark beer I used Dos Equis Amber
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper


  • Learn how to pronounce Worcestershire (it's worst-a-sure, not war-chester-shire).  You're welcome...
  • Mix the beer, Worcestershire, the juice from one lime and cumin in a large bowl and combine thoroughly.
  • Place the steak in a large Ziplock bag, pour in the marinade and place in the refrigerator.  Marinate the steak for 4 hours (at least 2), turning the bag occasionally.
  • Light the grill to high heat for direct grilling.
  • Remove the steak from the marinade and sprinkle with a generous amount of Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.
  • Flank steak cooks pretty quick, so don't overcook it.  Remember, you can always throw it back on the grill for a few minutes if it needs more time.  As always, these times are approximate and it always depends on the thickness of the meat and the temperature of your grill.
  • Place the flank steak over the hottest part of the grill and grill for about 4 - 6 minutes on each side for medium rare.
  • Let the flank steak rest for about 5 minutes on the cutting board to let the juices settle in the meat.
  • Slice thin, against the grain and serve with the left over beer!
