Guinness Marinated Steak
Guinness Marinated Steak - When in doubt, drink the stout. It’s slightly more authentically Irish than the green variety and goes perfectly with this recipe. Just remember to buy more Guinness than the recipe calls for. You know, so you can stay, er, hydrated while the steaks are on the grill.
- 4 beef steaks, cut of choice
- 4 cloves garlic
- ½ large onion
- ½ teaspoon rosemary sprigs, plus more for garnish
- 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- Handful fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
- 2 (440ml) cans Guinness
Step 1: Place steaks in one or two deep glass dishes; set aside. Place garlic, onion, rosemary, Worcestershire, soy sauce, brown sugar, parsley, Dijon, and pepper in a blender. Cover, and blend for about 30 seconds, or until the mixture is smooth.
Step 2: Add one can Guinness, cover, and blend for another 15 seconds. Remove cover, pour in second can of Guinness, and stir with a spoon until incorporated.
Step 3: Pour mixture evenly over steaks, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least eight hours, or overnight, turning over half way through.
Step 4: Preheat grill to medium-high; place steaks on preheated grill and cook, as desired (discard marinade). For medium rare, cook for 3-4 minutes each side; for medium, cook for 4-5 minutes each side; for medium well, cook 5-6 minutes each side; and for well done, cook for 6-7 minutes on each side.
Steps 5: Remove steaks from grill and cover with aluminum foil.
Steps 6: Let rest for 5 minutes before serving, so the juices can settle back into the steak.
Step 7: Garnish with rosemary, if desired, and enjoy!
