Nearly every time we have guests at our house, someone brings a case of beer and ends up leaving the leftovers for the hosts. This is very nice of our friends, except that we’re wine drinkers…not so huge on the beer. So what to do with the left over beer? Use it as a base for a steak marinade!
After marinating in the beer, these steaks were so amazingly flavorful and tender! There are a lot of strong flavors in this marinade, but they blend together beautifully to make a very harmonious dish.
*I used a dark Leinenkugel 1888 Bock in this recipe
Beer Marinated Sirloin Steaks
Adapted from Epicurious
¼ cup light soy sauce
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp black pepper
½ cup dark beer (see recipe notes)
1 ½-2 lbs sirloin steaks
Whisk all ingredients (except the steak) together in a large measuring cup.
Place the steak in a gallon sized resealable bag. Add the marinade and turn to coat. Refrigerate 24 hours or overnight, flipping the bag several times. Or place in the freezer and use within 1 month, the steak will marinate as it thaws.
Grill the thawed steaks over medium-low heat, flipping once, cooking to preferred doneness.
