Here is another great recipe for my “Cooking with Beer” collection. We had this for dinner last night and I tell you it was easy to make and a real treat! What I love about cooking with beer is that most recipes are very simple and turn out incredibly good. I used Brick Brewery’s Red Baron  lager, because I like supporting local companies any chance I get. The marinade takes literally minutes to put together, the steaks do not have to be premium cuts (I actually used marinating top sirloin instead of strip-loin, which we prefer. After only couple hours of marinating, the steaks turned out very tender and very, very tasty.

I served with with mushrooms sauted in garlic butter, parsley butter potatoes and corn-on-the-cob.

Do you need instructions on how to best cook Corn-on-the-Cob?

How to Cook Corn on the Cob

Grilled Beer Steak Recipe:


  • 1 cup of lager beer
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of molasses
  • 2-4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 – (1 inch thick preferably) marinating steaks

In case you don't know this about me - I almost religiously get all recipe ingredients ready before starting to mix and cook. I find that it actually makes cooking easier and faster - and you won't forget an ingredients!


Whisk together beer, soy sauce, molasses, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl

  1. Whisk together beer, soy sauce, molasses, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl

Beer, Soy sauce,Molasses,Garlic,Salt and Pepper - that is all there is to this marinade!

Place steaks in a resealable food storage bag

I used heavy ziplock freezer bags with double closure - just to make sure the marinade stayed in the bag!

Add marinade and mix well

Marinade in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

It was amazing how good the steaks look after marinating - rich in colour to say the least.

Grill steaks on a covered grill over high heat for about 8-10 minutes on each side or to desire degree of doneness.

We cooked the steaks on a hot grill for 8 minutes on each side - we like medium/rare steaks, and they were done to perfection!

The steaks were as good as they look - and sooo tender!

Grilled Beer Steak, served with garlic mushrooms, parsley butter potatoes and fresh corn on the cob - now that's what I call a great dinner!
