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

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill for high heat.

    Advertisement
  • 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.

  • Remove steaks from marinade. Pour marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook for several minutes.

  • 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.

Okay marinade. Not bad, not great! My 4 wheeling group gave this a 6 out of 10. Sorry, probably won't make it into the rotation. Read More

I actually made this from a Sandra Lee recipe on food network....just about the same recipe. I used 1/2 c. beer, 1/4 c. teryaki, 1/4 c. brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of Mccormick Montreal steak grill seasoning. Marinated a small skirt steak and a small flank for 24 hours. Grilled and the family inhaled....what a very tasty marinade. Will definately make again. Read More

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 garlic powder but added 4 tablespoons of minced garlic I used a whole bottle of Guinness 1 TBSP of Soy Sauce 5 TBSP of brown sugar 1 TBSP on Worcestershire Sauce and a TBSP of black pepper. I didn't have any teryaki on hand which is why I used the soy sauce. We used a tri-tip and marinated it for about 10 hours. Threw it on the grill for about an hour and it was really tasty. My husband really liked this recipe. I think next time I'll through in a couple of jalapeno's during the marinating and some cayenne for a little heat. Read More

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 sauce to drizzle over the cooked steaks to maximize the flavors from the marinade. Read More

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 flavor was so savory and delicious! This is such a versatile marinade. We served it with grilled rosemary potatoes and some grilled squash. Read More

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 instead. The steaks were tender juicy and had great flavor. I was afraid the marinade would burn because of the sugar but I didn't have any issues with that. Read More

This is a FABULOUS recipe. I followed it exactly. I used it on a large package of tri-tip steaks from Sams Club. Grilled them to a medium rare and we have been eating them all week. This is a great recipe to give your meat tons of flavor and tenderness. I marinaded these steaks in a large ziplock freezer bag in the refrigerator over night and let them warm up to room temperature before grilling them on a gas grill. Yum!!! Read More
