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:

      My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.

      The new firefox update is amazing. It feels a lot faster even if it does look like a Windows 95 program.

      I've been watching this Comet channel nightly for the last couple weeks. I love this channel now. Its what syfy used to be. Its all scifi re-runs. I've been watching Andromeda, Stargate Atlantis and the 1995 Outer Limits series. Most of these shows are in SD, but adjusted to HD. Looks horrible up close but from a distance and while watching in bed its just like the old days. lol. And they have a whole bunch of b movies.   http://www.comettv.com/schedule/

      My right joystick on my Cinch PS4 controller is going bad. It doesn't register right turns very well. I think it has something to do with me taking it apart after the charge port fell into the controller. Part of that is my fault for being spoiled by USB-C and not checking if its in the correct orientation. It lasted me a good year and a half. I'm too spoiled to go back to a regular controller so I ordered another one.
