Beer-marinated Flank Steak …
makes for a luscious Labor Day picnic recipe. Trust me. You will not be disappointed. Flank steak is a lean, extremely flavorful cut of beef. It’s often used for fajitas, but it can easily become the star of the show if you marinate, then grill. Flank steak should be sliced thin against the grain to highlight its best bite.
And here’s a tip from me to you: If you’re making this for a family picnic, grill fest or outdoor soiree, it’s imperative that you grill at least two, maybe three. It’s just that good. Enjoy!
