This is a blast-from-the-past posting. I made these awhile ago but didn't have a chance to post about them until now. Well I assure you, it was worth the wait.
Some people despise chain restaurants, regardless of what type of food they have. I can understand some of that loathing but not all. A good example? Outback Steakhouse. Mmm, mmm. Those steaks! That bread! Oh my, delicious corporate America all piled high on my plate. Yes please. So for those of you who can't imagine dining at a chain, read no further. But for those who share my love of that fabulous Aussie restaurant, you'll want to keep reading!
My husband is a pretty plain Jane guy when it comes to his steaks. He doesn't want you to season it or top with garlic butter, just sear the meat and serve it up. However, he also shares my love of Outback. So this imposter marinade was a win-win recipe to try.
- 3 beef sirloin steaks
- 1 cup beer
- 1 TBSP packed dark brown sugar
- 1 tsp seasoned salt (I use Lawry's)
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Place the steaks in a shallow pan, pour the beer over, and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
- Remove the steaks from the beer.
- Combine the dry ingredients and rub over the steaks.
- Let rest for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Preheat the grill to med-high eat and grill steaks to the desired degree of doneness.
Well take me to Queensland, I'm coming home! Fantastic! Of course nothing beats the real thing, these were an awesome second. If you feel like dressing up your steaks just enough I would highly recommend givnig this a try. I do think that the longer you let the steak marinate in the dry ingredients, the better.
