Green moms, this a fact you must know for marinating. Food scientists have found that marinating meat in beer can reduce the formation of cancer-causing compounds during cooking by as much as 88%! Wow! That is huge! So, I tried out this fact tonight with an adapted recipe originating from O Magazine.
1 London Broil (or any meat)
Kosher salt and pepper
3T Olive oil
1 (12 oz) bottle or can of flat beer
1/4 cup of lime juice
1 Medium onion, finely chopped
4 Cloves of garlic, minced
2t. Red pepper flakes
1/4C Chopped fresh parsley
Season meat with salt and pepper on both sides generously. Place in a glass baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Turn meat to insure both sides are fully covered.
Combine beer, lime juice, onion, garlic, pepper flakes, and parsley. Mix and pour over meat as a marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 2-6 hours.
Grill meat to desired taste. Enjoy!
