Shiner for your Steak Marinade


Hello All!!!  And welcome back to Food~Flavor~Fun!

A great place to find and share some great recipes that are loaded with flavor, to be prepared and shared with family and friends to bring a lot of fun, joy, and great tastes into all our lives.  I’m so glad that you’ve joined me today!  Welcome!  Welcome!  Welcome!

This has been a great weekend.  We had a graduation party for my daughter.  We had a lot of family and close friends drop by.  What a joy to share these great milestones!

Today I’d like to share a skirt steak marinade that I’ll be having on my menu tonight.  It’s very easy and I just love the flavor.  The name comes from the Shiner Bock beer I use in the marinade.  If you have not learned to use different marinades to add flavor to your meats or brines to add flavor and moisture, you’ve got to give them a try.  Marinades add flavor, tenderize tough cuts and really change up the flavors when using the same cuts of meat.  It will help you not get tired of the same ‘ole thing.  Give this one a shot.  I think your going to like it.

Shiner for your Steak Marinade


  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried cumin
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (yes, that pepper mill thing)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) Shiner Bock beer (or other dark beer)
  • 2 pounds skirt steak (flank steak works too)


Lay the meat out on a flat surface.  Sprinkle with a pinch of each of the oregano, cumin, pepper and salt.  Work the spices in with your fingers.  Do both sides.  Nobody likes one sided flavor.

Place the remaining spices in a large zipper bag.  Add the oil, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and beer. Seal the bag and squeeze the contents around to mix up the sugar and the spices.  Reopen and add the steak to the bag, re-seal and turn to coat well.  You can refrigerate over night or allow to marinate for several hours.  Longer is better.

Remove the steak from the bag and discard the marinade.  Grill over medium-high heat for 4 minutes per side.  Don’t over cook this cut of meat.

Transfer to a platter and let rest for 10 minutes.  Slice the steak across the grain to make it more tender to eat.  Enjoy!
