This recipe is courtesy of www.ontariocraftbrewers.com. This recipe features a brown ale from Ontario’s Neustadt Springs. Neustadt Springs is a small craft brewery located about an hour North of Guelph. Yummy stuff – check it out. If you can’t find Neustadt’s beer then use any mild, dark ale. In Alberta it should be easy enough to find Big Rock’s Traditional or, better yet, their Black Amber Ale….yummy. (Cripes, and I thought writing about barbecued food was hard on the willpower – this beer stuff is killer.)
Neustadt 10w30 BBQ Marinade Recipe
Ingredients:1/4 cup Neustadt 10w30 ale
2 (16oz) steaks
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder Method:
1. Preheat grill for high heat.
2. Use a fork to poke holes all over the surface of the steaks, and place steaks in a large baking dish. In a bowl, mix together beer, teriyaki sauce, and brown sugar. Pour sauce over steaks, and let sit about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 the seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder; set aside for 10 minutes. Turn steaks over, sprinkle with remaining seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and continue marinating for 10 more minutes.
3. Remove steaks from marinade. Pour marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook for several minutes.
4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill steaks for 7 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. During the last few minutes of grilling, baste steaks with boiled marinade to enhance the flavor and ensure juiciness.
