A flavorful beer marinade using a pale ale and a mixture of savory and sweet ingredients to create a delicious beef marinade that’s perfect for grilling!
Summer grilling is in full swing, so it’s time to break out your favorite marinades. From beef to veggies, we all have have one that we love.
For today, Kim and I are sharing our favorite beer marinade for beef. Notice, I said beef. I wouldn’t use it for chicken, fish, or vegetables.
How to make a beer marinade:
First, grab a medium mixing bowl or large measuring cup.
After that, add in the beer, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce.
Then, use a whisk to mix all the ingredients. Now, pour the beer marinade over your choice of beef.
Place the meat into the fridge and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes. However, I wouldn’t let anything marinate for more than 2-hours.
Last, remove the roast or steak from the fridge and grill it to your desired doneness.
That’s it, your beef beer marinade is done! Kim and I hope you enjoy this condiment and wish you all the best 🙂
Should you marinade steak?
If you want to add a ton of flavor to any cut of meat, then you should marinate it. Furthermore, marinated meat is tenderized through the use of vinegar(s).
How do you marinate meat quickly?
The only thing I’m aware of is to refrigerate it and allow the meat to marinate for at least 30-minutes. With that being said, there might be other ways.
