Outback Steakhouse Steak Marinade
1 cup Scottish Ale
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon monosodium glutamate
Place any cut of steak in a shallow pan (a pie plate works great). Pour the ale over the steak and cover the pan. Place it in the refrigerator for 1 hour to marinate. Turn the steak occasionally to ensure both sides get soaked.
After 1 hour, remove the steak from the refrigerator. In another shallow pan, combine the remaining ingredients. Stir the dry ingredients until they are completely blended.
Remove the steak from ale and dip it into the dry ingredients. Turn the steak to mix and coat it with the ingredients. Rub the mixture generously over all sides. Leave the steak in the dish with the dry mixture, and cover it with plastic wrap.
Place it in the refrigerator, turning occasionally, for 30 minutes.
When the 30 minutes are almost up, preheat a skillet or grill to med high heat. Add a bit of butter and heat until it begins to bubble. Then remove he steak from the refrigerator.
Add the steak to the hot skillet or grill and cook it to perfection. Cook steak as desired and serve immediately. Makes enough marinade for 1 1/2 pounds of beef.
