I know I can’t!! This Pub-Style Steak is inspired by one of those little cards that you get at the grocery store, and turned out even better than I imagined…so delicious! 🙂

How to make Pub-Style Steak:

For the Marinade:

In a large bowl, combine beer, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. Add the steaks, turn over and cover with plastic wrap. Marinate for one hour on the counter OR place in the refrigerator for a few hours until ready to use. Turn steak occasionally so both sides end up equally inebriated…..

Remove steaks from the marinade, reserve the marinade. Pat steaks dry with paper towels, and season with salt and pepper.

To cook the Steaks:

Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until hot, about one minute. Place steaks in the hot skillet and cook for four to five minutes {depending on thickness}.

This Pub-Style Steak is the most amazing steak that you will ever eat | cookingwithcurls.com

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G…have I said that enough times  yet? 😉

Recipe Notes:

  • My steaks were about 1-inch thick, so 4 minutes on each side should get you to your desired doneness. A 1.5-inch thick steak will take about 5 minutes on each side.
  • Do not leave the sauce in a cast iron skillet and walk away to take photos, or your sauce will continue to cook and evaporate. Serve immediately!

In case you are wondering why I always specify grass-fed beef, it is for good reasons.

  • Grass-fed beef is higher in Omega-3 fats {like salmon} and has less Omega-6 fats {the bad kind} than corn-fed beef.
  • Grass-fed beef does not have e-coli. Cow’s were designed to “graze” in the fields and eat grasses. Their bodies do not process corn correctly and that’s when you end up with e-coli.
  • It tastes better.

I have decided to start creating some Dinner for Two recipes. They won’t all be fancy, or just for special occasions. Sometimes you just need something different for dinner when it’s just the two of you home for dinner, or the kids have moved out and you don’t want a week’s worth of leftovers! 😉

P.S. this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if needed.

  1. “Equally inebriated.” Best line of the day! These steak look amazing! My only question is about the rest time. We always let ours rest for 5 minutes, but it seems like these will be resting longer. Were they still warm? That’s the only thing I hate about resting meat…I want to eat them now when they’re HOT! Either way, I’m absolutely making these. I love a good steak and these look incredible.
