Pub House Steak

I hate beer, but it is a good marinade. This is another freezer stock-up meal.

2  one and one-half pound flank steaks (I used round steak)
1 1/2 cups dark beer (1 bottle)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 t minced garlic (about 6 cloves)
1/2 t black pepper
2 one-gallon freezer bags


Put one steak in each bag.

Whisk together beer, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, garlic, and pepper. Divide marinade evenly over the steaks.

Seal and freeze.

On serving day, completely that one entree in the refrigerator. Heat grill to medium and cook steak to desired doneness. Discard remaining marinade.
