The Guinness Ribeye

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.

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.

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.

      The two best anime this season so far are Goblin Slayer and SSSS.Gridman. Goblin Slayer caused a huge uproar over its first ep.. which honestly is stupid. Plenty of acclaimed anime have had an uncomfortable rape scene. A heavily censored scene that took up all of 10 seconds of the episode. However, whether intended or not, it got everyone talking about it. After that, it resumed as a normal but violent anime. It also wasn't random, it established the goblin's as pure evil. SSSS.Gridman is your standard over the top Trigger mecha anime... but it starts out off the rails. I don't see how they can get much more bat shit crazy. That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, Zombie Land SAGA, and Double Decker: Doug and Kirill have all been fun and quirky though. Overall I'm enjoying this season even if I'm skipping on a few of the shows.

      I got my new fridge hooked up over the weekend. Built in water and ice maker is amazing. I never realized how convenient that really is. Thanks goes out to the inlaws and aunt for the amazing gift.

      This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done.  ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.
