Makes 10 servings

Steak is expensive, and not something you can necessarily pick up at the corner mini mart. But sometimes if you are grilling for a particular occasion–St. Patty’s Day, your boyfriend’s birthday, the last day of school–special times call for special meaty measures. If you slice up the meat and stick it inside a sandwich or taco, the steak will stretch a surprisingly long way. The marinade requires very few ingredients to be purchased. Better yet, it only requires 1 pint of Guinness, which leaves you to figure out what to do with the rest.
2 cloves garlic, pushed through a press, or finely minced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons salt
1 pint Guinness
4 pounds flank steak
In a large dish or bowl, combine the garlic, mustard, salt, and guiness. Stir to combine. Place the steak in the marinade and place, covered lightly, in the fridge for 1-2 hours (it may take this long for the guys to figure out how to use the grill). Grill to medium-rare. Slice and serve.
