You’ll Love This Beer-Marinated Peppered T-Bones Recipe

T-bone is one of the most popular cuts of steak out there. Many families only ever enjoy this cut at a restaurant, but with this recipe you can enjoy them at home. This is a particularly unique steak recipe, since it uses beer in its marinade. Don't worry about giving this one to the kids; the alcohol will burn off during cooking.

This recipe is packed with flavor. Aside from the beer, onion, chili sauce, mustard, paprika, and black pepper give the steaks a rich and savory taste. Note that this recipe uses two kinds of black pepper: ground and cracked. If you read the recipe too quickly, you may mistakenly assume that they're the same.

Keep in mind that these steaks need to marinate for at least four hours. Ideally, try to marinate them overnight. This will really allow the marinade to penetrate deep into the meat for a truly rich flavor. If you don't allow the steaks to marinate for long enough, the flavor won't properly set and you'll be left with a disappointed family!

Remember to preheat the grill before cooking. Preheating the grill ensures that the meat cooks evenly. You don't need to preheat the grill for too long; five to ten minutes should be more than sufficient. Once the grill has been preheated, follow this recipe's cooking instructions and enjoy!

Beer-Marinated Peppered T-Bones


1 cup chopped onion
1/2 of a 12-ounce can (3/4 cup) beer
3/4 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup parsley
3 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 beef T-bone steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 1 pound each)
1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons cracked black pepper


In a large glass baking dish combine onion, beer, chili sauce, parsley, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, paprika, and the 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Place steaks in marinade. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours or overnight, turning steaks over occasionally.

Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Sprinkle both sides of steaks with the cracked black pepper.

Grill steaks on an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 5 minutes. Turn and grill to desired doneness, allowing 7 to 10 minutes more for medium (160 degrees F) doneness.
