Guinness Marinade for Steak

I think I was suffering a little from heat exhaustion yesterday.  You see "The Darlings" were competing in a very large athletics event and I was the designated parent helper!  Lucky me!!  It meant I had to be out on the track, in the sun.  My "replacement" parent helper never turned up and let's just say I was out there escorting kids around the track for a VERY long time!!!

That didn't deter me though when I got home from setting to and making dinner.  Unfortunately I was so tired and SO hungry (no lunch break) that I completely forgot about taking photos!!  So please forgive me.

I had a spare bottle of Guinness that has been sitting on the kitchen bench since I made the ribs a while back, so I was keen to find a way to use it up.  I have never really thought to add tarragon to a steak marinade before so I decided it was worth giving a go, and it was a great flavour to compliment the steak!!

Guinness Steak Marinade

1 cup Guinness
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 onion, finely minced in the food processor
1 french shallot, finely minced in the food processor
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs worcestershire sauce
1 tbs dijon mustard
2 tbs tarragon, finely chopped
2 tbs continental parsley, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine all the above ingredients in a large ziploc bag.  Add Steaks and marinade for at least 1 hour.

Barbecue steaks to your liking.

After a hard day in the sun a BBQ'd steak was just what the doctor ordered (that and a nice cold beer!!!)
