How Would You Like That Steak?

I'll ask you the above question but in truth, it's a crap shoot at best when I bring your steak to the table. Chicken. Pork. Ribs. No problem. Steaks? Problem.

We had Kenny & Pam over for dinner last night. Guess what we had? You got it...
I used a new steak marinade recipe. I know that you should try it on yourself first but then reason is not always my strength. The marinade turned out to taste surprising good. It's a keeper. Simple recipe. Very simple.

1/4 cup dark beer
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce (I didn't have teriyaki sauce so I used soy sauce)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Don't let the dark beer put you off. It did not overpower the meat. Enhanced I believe would be the word.

Grilling the steaks turned out to be a snap. With a dual burner grill; Kenny took care of he and Pam's and I watched over mine and Alyson's. The pressure was off :)
We skewered some fresh veggies to add to the grill and that was that...

Alyson made homemade strawberry shortcake for our dessert, one of my all-time favorites.

Our gracious friends brought along a nice Talus cabernet sauvignon. All in all, a fine meal with fine friends!
Life is good...
