Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade


"I concocted this marinade on a lark and it turned out great. The flavors complement and do not overwhelm the natural taste of beef."

  1. Preheat grill for high heat.
  2. Use a fork to poke holes all over the surface of the steaks, and place steaks in a large baking dish. In a bowl, mix together beer, teriyaki sauce, and brown sugar. Pour sauce over steaks, and let sit about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 the seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder; set aside for 10 minutes. Turn steaks over, sprinkle with remaining seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and continue marinating for 10 more minutes.
  3. Remove steaks from marinade. Pour marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook for several minutes.
  4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill steaks for 7 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. During the last few minutes of grilling, baste steaks with boiled marinade to enhance the flavor and ensure juiciness.

This was very good. I think there are ways to improve upon it, which is why I gave it 4 stars. I did change a couple of things. I used a ziploc bag for the marinating process, I didn't add any g...

Addendum to my previous review (a previous 5 star rating). Simmer your left-over marinade on the bbq side burner (or stove top) until it thickens. Don't let it burn. Makes a great thickened s...

I've only used this marinade on chicken until this past weekend. I marinated some filet mignon on Sunday evening and we grilled them last night. The tenderness of the meat was to die for!! The f...

This is really an under used marinade. It was very tasty, super easy and I will use it again for sure. The marinade is slightly sweet. I didn't have any teriyaki sauce so used A-1 Sweet inste...
