Beer Marinade for Steak Instructions

  1. Prepare your steaks marinade a few hours before you want to eat. This step isn’t necessary. But it will make everything taste better since the meat has time to soak up the flavours.
  2. Put all the ingredients into a ziplock bag and then add your steaks. Zip the bag and make sure it’s locked. Now mix the bag up so the meat is covered with the marinade. You don’t have to shake the bag. Just turning and even ‘massaging’ the meat with help the juices get into the grooves of the steaks. You can even poke holes into the steaks before putting them into the bag to help the juices get inside. 
  3. Leave the steaks in the fridge for a few hours until you can’t wait any longer and need to try them. If you remember, come back and flip them over a few times and mix them again before putting them back in the fridge. 
  4. When you’re ready for your BBQ, preheat your grill or BBQ until it’s very hot. This is the best method for cooking steaks. It sears the outside of the steaks so all the juices get trapped inside and can’t escape.
  5. With the left over marinade in the bag, put it into a pan or pot and bring it to a boil for a few minutes.
  6. When you’re steaks are done to your liking, put them on a plate and drizzle your marinade on top. Now get ready for a mouth full of flavour!
