    Trim fat from beef. Make cuts about 1/2 inch apart and 1/8 inch deep in diamond pattern on both sides of beef. Place in shallow glass dish. 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.
  • 2
    Brush grill rack with canola or soybean oil. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove beef from marinade; reserve marinade. 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.

    Cut beef diagonally into thin slices. Serve beef in pita bread halves with tomato and onion.

Expert Tips

  • “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.
  • 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.
