Ale Marinated Steak Recipe

By covering the beef in an ale marinade you make your steak incredibly tender with a wonderful sweet malt flavour.

[recipe][recipe title=”Ale Marinated Steak Recipe” servings=”2″ time=”1 hour 10 mins” difficulty=”easy”]


  • 1 bottle Irish Pale Ale
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic
  • 1 teaspoon runny honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 pack striploin steak


Pour the ale into a large bowl and stir together with the dried spices, honey, and soy sauce. Remove the steak from the packaging and submerge in the bowl of marinade. Cover the bowl and put the bowl into the fridge for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, cook the steak on a griddle pan/grill/barbecue. This marinade makes the beef very tender and it will cook extremely rapidly so if you like your meat rare, simply sear for 1 minute on either side!

Once cooked, pair your steak with the ale you used for the marinade and serve with homemade chips or a baked potato and fresh salad. [/recipe]

    I will try this recipe. – I have left over Ale from making the Irish Lamb stew and want to use it in a nice marinade.
    This looks great and will fit the need.
    Will return when I get this done!
