Beer Marinated Sirloin Steaks

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.

Recipe Notes:
*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 Dijon mustard
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.


  1. Ooooh that's a great idea! The steak looks delicious!

  2. this looks amazing! I have been looking around for a good beer recipe! And those potatoes look mouthwatering!

  3. We always have a lot of steak in the freezer, because we order half a steer from a local farmer. I never thought to marinade it in beer!

  4. Aw sweet, I love Leinenkugel's beer. I bet this steak is delicious! Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays!

  5. We always have leftover beers from get-togethers. We just don't drink a lot anyways. However, Leinenkugel's is my husband's favorite beer (and the only beer I will drink) and I use it for cooking a lot. I will definitely have to show him this recipe. And point out the red lager. We haven't seen that around!
