On my way home from work last tuesday I decided to stop by the super market and grab a couple of london broils. Â When I got them home I had no idea what to put on them as a marinade. Â Salt, pepper and other spices get old after a while. Â I have a few Saison Du Buff's laying around, 4 to be exact and I figured why not marinate a steak in that. Â The beer it self as such a floral smell, it should be perfect for a steak. Â Long story short I did not marinate that long maybe 3 hours if that. Â I would try it again with smaller steaks and letting them sit longer, maybe over night in the bag with some fresh spices. Â So we sprinkled it with some salt and tossed it the grill. Â About 15 min later we this.
The steak was real juicy and you could taste the beer here and there. Â What really set it off was the Butter Sauce with Garlic, Tarragon and Thyme that our fellow contributor Jared whipped up.
And of course I had a good beer for the occasion. Â A Nugget Single from Mikkeller and this was a real treat. Â I at first sniff I was hit in the face with hops and citrus having a quick sip It was a little bitter but then the hops and citrus flavors come out and finishing very dry but crisp. Â I was hoping for more of a Nugget Nectar as I assume most buying this would expect. Is it worth $$? No, but I will definitely get this brew again in the near future!
