Guinness-Dijon Marinade Recipe

There's no need to overcomplicate marinades. You simply need a tenderizing agent, which can definitely multi-task as a flavoring agent. That's right, Guinness is a double agent. And it also loves mustard. Two cats out of the bag right there.

You can use another stout, but I love Guinness' mellow sweetness and lighter carbonation. It should go without saying that actual step 1 is drinking the other half.

large steak
  • 1/2 bottle Guinness
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1 large sprig fresh rosemary
  • several grinds black pepper
  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl and allow to sit, uncovered for 30 minutes. This will allow the rest of the carbonation to settle. 
  2. Pour marinade over steak in a large casserole dish or in a plastic zip-top bag, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours, turning once halfway through.
  3. Remove steak from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature before grilling.
