can or bottle (12 ounces) regular or nonalcoholic beer

Mix honey, soy sauce, gingerroot and beer in small bowl; pour over beef. Cover and refrigerate, turning occasionally, at least 4 hours but no longer than 24 hours.

Cover and grill beef 6 inches from medium heat about 12 minutes for medium doneness, turning after 6 minutes and brushing frequently with marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.
  3. Cut beef diagonally into thin slices. Serve beef in pita bread halves with tomato and onion.

“With my husband being the ‘king of sandwiches,' this is good for us. The steak is a lean cut with hardly any fat.” Cathy P.
A Note from Dr. B.:
Lunching on an oversized deli sandwich can cost you anywhere from 600 to 800 calories. Instead, bring a healthy lunch from home. Pack sandwiches that feature lean meats or cheeses for a midday protein punch. Also include raw vegetable sticks and fresh fruit for fiber and nutrients.
