This is a recipe I found online, with a few personal modifications. Whether you like Guinness Beer or not really isn't the issue. This makes some good tasting Ribeyes.

For this you will need:

  • 1 USDA Choice/Prime Ribeye steak
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 ounce soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Vidalia onion
  • 1 teaspoon shallots
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • And of course Guinness Beer

These measurements are suggestions. Alter them after you own taste, if you want more garlic, less Dijon, and more pepper, that's entirely up to you. It really depends on the thickness of your steak... and how many steaks you plan to cook. But for this, lets just say its one.

-Pour the Guinness into the container you plan to marinade your steak in and make sure you fill it up enough to where at least half the steak will be submersed into it.

-Chop up the garlic, shallot, parsley, tarragon and onion and toss it in. Add the Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, salt, and pepper next.

-Make sure its nice and mixed up, and then let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour without the meat. This will allow the ingredients to bond.

-Take your Ribeye and stab it a few times with a fork on both sides and drop it in the marinade. The tiny holes you made will soak up the juice better.

-Cover your container and let it soak for 6-10 hours in the fridge. I don't recommend any less than that, but if you have to, no less than 4 hours. Make sure you flip the steak over half way through the duration.

-Finally, Its time to cook. If you pan sear your stake, pour the remaining marinade over the steak while it cooks, and maybe a little more Guinness out of the bottle you're drinking from. ;) Do this a little bit at a time until the juice cooks into the steak, then repeat. You don't want to boil your steak.

-If you grill, take a marinade brush, and brush the remaining marinade onto the steak until the desired temperature. I recommend medium, as I am not a fan of well-done.

It's a lot of work, but I assure you it is well worth it. As much as I love the grill, I prefer the pan sear method for this one, just be sure you have a pan that will get hot enough to cook it evenly.

omg that sounds good. What if I only have coors light on hand? Is the beer flavor really noticable or is it to achieve a unique flavor? *wants to try*

Yes it does matter. Coors light is too weak, the worcestershire sauce will overpower it so you probably wont taste it. Guinness is a very strong tasting beer, and it reflects in the marinaded stake. Other porter beers might work as well, such as Yuengling Black & Tan or Sierra Navada. Dark beer is the key. Also the 6-10 hours of soak time is very important.

Believe it or not, this recipe is superior to the Maker's Mark one I have. I'll post that one later.

Ah, thanks for the heads up! Do you think Boddington's or Red Stripe would be too weak too? I'm just asking because I've never tasted guinness beer before. ^_^;

Its pretty close to boddingtons, might be a little stiffer. Just make sure you don't get Guinness Extra Stout. I like it but is pretty much the strongest tasting beer I've ever had, Its almost like coffee. LOL Is there anywhere that sells single bottles? Try one, if you like Boddingtons, you should like Guinness... its one of those occasion beers, where you have to be in the mood.

When you marinade, that distinct flavor comes out, but its not overpowering, It adds to the meat flavor of the ribeye. I know Strider likes Guinness as well, and someone else on here as well.

Red Stripe will be too weak, but Boddington's should come out pretty good. Its that stout flavor you are looking for to get into your steak.

Ok good, I think I'll look for a single guinness and try that first, but if I can't find a single bottle/can I'll try this with a boddingtons. mmm... steak. :drool:

      Ancient Magus Bride is simply outstanding. I wish I would have gotten to it sooner. Its like a darker Spirited Away with some XXXholic and Mushi Shi mixed in. From all the promotion Funi did on facebook, it was nothing like what I thought it was going to be. They really need to work on conveying themes better. Its partially why it took me so long to get around too it, because it didn't interest me at first. If you're ever in the mood for a mystical anime, this is the one. The world building is fantastic.

      3 episodes into Stiens:Gate 0, and it's a feels trip. I liked the first one, but I wouldn't consider myself a fan. But this one is just tugging at my feelings with Okabe interacting with Amadeus. On a funny note, its wierd how everyone's tits got huge. Wtf?

      I'm going to preface this by saying I'm normally not a fan of Super Robot mech shows (more of a Real Robot guy myself (Gundam/Macross)) and never really have been (there are exceptions but they are few) so that will tell you just how much I adored this show.
      It took me 11 years to finally sit down and watch it (and it's spent many years on my Netflix to watch list (I watched in on CR though) but I finished Gurren Lagann tonight and I have to say I absolutely fucking adored it. I don't understand why it took me so long to finally watch it but god am I glad I finally did. I haven't been this pumped after watching a show since I finished Kill la Kill (funny considering Trigger is also responsible making that gem). I'll admit it was a little rough in the beginning and if it wasn't for Kamina I would of dropped it but man am I glad I stuck through it, it only kept getting better. I'll admit, my taste for shows like this has dwindled over the years and I'm not really into the over the top, ridiculous shit anymore but god this just scratched an itch I didn't even know I had. Sure, I have my issues with the show (some pretty poor character development in some of the secondary characters, story is a little hard to follow after a certain point, some of the mech based science bugs me, and the whole Spiral Energy thing is ridiculous) but god damn do they seem insignificant when put up against an awesome soundtrack, awesome visuals (a little jenky considering how old it is), and a downright stellar main cast.
      If it wasn't for my absolute love for Zeta Gundam this might have taken the place as my all time favorite mech anime (you all know me well enough to know how high of praise this is). I can't wait to watch the movies this weekend (yea they're recaps but apparently the second movie makes the final fight even more epic then it already was) and I'm sad to think there is no more of this wonderful show to watch (manly tears were shed at this realization).

      Finished Darling in the Franxx today. Its definitely not for everyone. It starts out confused to what it is. A lot of people could give up on it after the first few eps. What's seemingly a corny mecha series with horny teens quickly evolves into an interesting and mysterious world were a group of kids try to find their place on society and struggle to cope with their emotions. Lately, I've been unintentionally watching series with slow build ups that lead to big payoffs and this is one of them. Having to wait each week for a new episode deprived me of the instant gratification or lack there of I'm accustomed to. The series ends without answering a lot of questions and adding a few more about the actual social structure and why the world is the way it is. But the questions about Hiro's issues and his explainable connection to 002 are all resolved. The animators of Gurren Lagann did this series, and it's easy to see that. Instead of a over the top epic tale, we get a darker world with mysterious creatures that probably wont be explained until next season.
