The Way to Grill a Healthy Steak Recipe
Meat is something to eat less of, yes. But a backyard barbecue just isn't the same without grilled meat of some sort. So at least make the meat you eat as healthy as possible. Look for lean cuts—loins and rounds are good choices. And then try marinating them in beer. Food scientists reported in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in 2008 that marinating a steak in beer can reduce the formation of cancer-causing compounds during cooking by as much as 88 percent. (The malt and hops in beer contain antioxidants, compounds that block the formation of carcinogens.) Who says you can't be healthy without sacrificing flavor?
