Guinness-Marinated Steak Sandwiches for Jessica’s Baby Shower

My friend Jessica from Sunny Side Up is having a baby! Baby girl, Maeve (love that name so much), is going to be here soon, and to celebrate, Krystal from Mrs. Regueiro’s Plate and Jessica from My Baking Heart are hosing a virtual baby shower. The name Maeve is of Irish descent and Jessica loves Irish dancing, so we’re celebrating Irish pot-of-gold style.

Like your typical person who knows next to nothing about Irish cuisine, the first thing that came to mind was something with Guinness. Perhaps not the best choice for a pregnant lady, but the vast majority of the alcohol is cooked off, so it’s okay. :) Guinness pot pie seemed too heavy for a shower (particularly at the end of August) so I decided to go with sliders instead.

The steak (I decided to use flank) is marinated in a mixture of Guinness, soy sauce, Worcestershire, molasses, garlic, onions, and rosemary. And? It’s oh so good. Some of the marinade is reserved and boiled down to spoon over the steak, so all those flavors really come through. Admittedly, I thought it might be a little too salty, especially the reduced marinade, but I needn’t have been worried. The molasses added just the right amount of sweetness, and the flavors in the soy and Guinness paired perfectly with the mushrooms and onions too. I would definitely use this marinade again (bonus: you only use 1 cup of stout, so you have drink the rest).

Make sure you stop by and congratulate Jessica, and be sure to check Krystal and Jessica’s pages for the full round-up of all the delicious offerings!
