  • 1 thick steak (or two smaller thick steaks) around 14 oz / 400g in total
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 can beer I used a porter, but a strong ale or stout would also work well (14.8oz / 437ml)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • juice of one lime
  • ½ teaspoon Black pepper

For cooking


  • Combine the garlic, brown sugar, beer, oil, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice and black pepper in a large bowl or container.
  • Place the steak in the marinade. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Pre heat the oven to 275F / 135c.
  • Place the steak in a small baking tin and place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. For medium rare, the steak should register at 90-95F / 32-35c. Once done, remove the steak from the oven.
  • Add a tablespoon of oil to a pan with the butter and place on a high heat.
  • Once hot, place the steak in the pan. Cook on one side for 2 minutes.
  • Flip the steak over and cook for another 2 minutes whilst basting the top side of the steak with the fat in the pan.
  • Remove the steak, let rest for 10 minutes before carving and serving.


  • Let the steak come up to room temperature before placing it in the oven.
  • When you sear the steak, have the pan as hot as you can to get those perfect crispy bits.
  • Let the steak rest for at least 10 minutes before serving to let the juices redistribute.
  • Nutritional values are based on one of two servings and are an estimate only.
