St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Party: Guinness Braised London Broil

All I can say is, yum. Beer + red meat is an unbelievably delicious combination. I let the meat soak up my sweet & spicy Guinness marinade for a full 24 hours, and wow. But don’t take my word for it, try it yourself!
Note: You can easily make this gluten free by substituting a gluten free beer.
Guinness Braised London Broil


1/4 cup ketchup
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp spicy or dijon mustard
2 inch piece of ginger, sliced
4 garlic cloves, cracked and peeled
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp yellow mustard seeds
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 shots of Sriracha or other hot sauce
2 sprigs of rosemary
3 sprigs of thyme
14 oz. Guinness or other stout
2 lbs london broil (I used two 1 lb-ers)


1. Mix together all ingredients but meat in a heavy zip-top bag. Add meat, then marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours (I did a full 24).

2. Using a pair of tongs, remove meat from marinade into a baking dish. Pour in enough of the marinade so the meat is just submerged.

3. Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes depending on the size of your cuts of meat (if you use a single cut at 2 lbs, it might take longer; you can also braise this on the stove-top in a large dutch oven).

The cost:
meat: 17.98
other ingredients: <3.00

Grand total: $20.98; serves 6-8
