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:

      Fairy Tail is over.. and the final chapter was decent. No hentai fluff crap like I was expecting. Instead it had a nice retrospect back to the first handful of chapters of the entire series. As much as I hated and complained about the ending, I will miss this manga. Its hard to believe I've been reading it for 11 years. I'll have to pick up some other manga to read now.

      My PS3 died today. It was one of my favorite consoles of all time and the best bluray player ever. I tried everything to fix it except buy a new power adapter. If I buy a multimeter I can test it to see if thats the issue or not. But I'll probably be better off putting the $30 that would cost towards a newer model refurbished one. I would just get another ps4 for my living room, but I still have a bunch of ps3 games I still want to eventually play.

      Whether you were a big fan or not today is a tragic loss for the music world. Chester Bennington, lead singer and front man for Linkin Park, was found dead today at 41.
      I was a huge LP fan when I was younger (though I sort of lost touch with them over the years, their music past Meteora was so so) so this hits pretty hard for me. Their music, his music, helped me through a lot.
      RIP Chester, though you're gone your music and message will always remain.

      My new kitten Maggie is not giving me an ounce of privacy or free time. x_x We have been slowly integrating her in with our dogs and after the last couple days they seem to be getting along just fine now. We had to take her to the vet a few days ago to check her spay operation from the shelter. It was slightly infected. She got antibiotics, a fresh staple and has had a cone on her head since then and it won't come off for another week. She likes to knock over everything and almost spilled my glass of water on my laptop. x_x

      One year later my Cinch Controller is still running strong. I'm glad I went with this over Scuf. Scuf is the most popular, but they seem to be Xbox experts... even then I hear their paddles break within a year or less. Overwatch is what I've used to utilize on the most. Nier Automata is another but its not competitive. Every shooter I play I swap the right stick to crouch and O to melee. Being able to jump and melee without taking your fingers of the sticks has been a huge advantage. It at least helps you close the gap on 2 of the 3 advantages those mouse/keyboard modders have on console FPS. It's baffling how Sony and MS haven't cut Cinch, Scuff, Sharq, and all the others out of the equation by making their own controllers with programmable under-buttons.
