Recipe: Steak and Beer

Steak and Beer

Preparation Time: 5 minutes.
Cooking Time: 12 - 30 minutes.
Serves 4-6

4 Steakhouse Classic sirloin or club steaks
2 cloves of garlic, crushed 1/2 cup beer
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon Robertsons black peppercorns, crushed

Place steaks in a dish and add the garlic, beer, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and oil. Turn to coat evenly and marinade in the fridge for 2 - 3 hours. Remove steaks from the dish and reserve the marinade. Sprinkle peppercorns onto the steaks and press them in firmly. Leave steaks to attain room temperature. Cook steaks on a hot grill until done to your liking (see table below), basting them occasionally with the reserved marinade. Cut the steaks into bite-size pieces, pour remaining marinade over and serve with mashed potatoes and a good glass of South African Cabernet Sauvignon.
