 So, in honor Father’s Day,  Kim Barber with Weight Watchers is here  is debunking the top 5 myths – that will prove men can lose weight without sacrificing their manhood.

This meat is wonderfully tender and so well-flavored. Marinate it in the morning before you go to work and just pop it in the oven when you get home.

 12 oz beer   
 2 Tbsp olive oil   
 1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), peeled and smashed   
 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice   
 1 Tbsp dark brown sugar   
 1 tsp table salt   
 1/8 tsp whole cloves   
  1 1/2 pound(s) 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, at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.
·         Place a grill pan in broiler; preheat broiler to high. Remove meat from marinade and broil about 3 1/2 minutes per side for medium rare, or longer until desired doneness.* Remove meat from broiler and place meat on a plate; loosely cover with aluminum foil and let stand for about 10 minutes.
·         Meanwhile, place grill pan on stovetop over high heat; carefully pour marinade onto grill pan. Bring to a boil (beer will foam) and cook until all alcohol burns off, about 5 to 7 minutes.
·         Thinly slice steak against the grain and serve with sauce. Yields about 4 ounces of steak per serving.
·         *You can also cook this recipe on the grill and reduce the sauce in a saucepan on the stove.
