Guinness Surf & Turf 

Makes 4 – 6 servings 

Guinness Draught Marinated Ribeye 

1 X 1 ½-inch thick cut ribeye steak 

1 can Guinness Draught 

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 ½ teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons smoked paprika 

Zest of 1 lemon, grated on a microplane

1 tablespoon sea salt 

1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper 

Guinness Garlic Herb Compound Butter with Lobster 

1 cup butter, softened 

2 tablespoons Guinness Draught 

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons diced fresh chives 

1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon 

1 tablespoon minced fresh basil 

Zest of 1 lemon, grated on a microplane

Sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper

2 – 3 halved, uncooked lobsters (about 1 ¼ pounds each) 

First, marinade your steak. 

In a large bowl, combine Guinness Draught, garlic, spices, lemon zest, sea salt, and cracked black pepper, and mix well. Submerge the steak, cover, and chill in the fridge to marinade for at least 4 hours (or up to overnight). *Before cooking, be sure to bring your steak to room temperature in the marinade mixture on the counter for 1 hour. 

Next, make the compound butter. In a large bowl, combine the softened butter, Guinness Draught, garlic, herbs, lemon zest, and a pinch of salt and pepper, and mash together with a fork until super soft and well combined. Note! This makes extra compound butter. Perfect for your next seafood, steak, and pasta night! Awesome. 

Preheat a grill to high-heat. 

Slather the flesh of your uncooked lobster halves with compound butter, coating every nook and cranny. Place the lobsters on the grill, flesh-side down, and cook for about 2 minutes, until starting to char. Flip, add a little extra compound butter to each lobster for good measure, then continue cooking for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, grill your steak until cooked to your desired doneness (medium rare is best, my friends). Be sure to rest that steak at least 5 minutes before slicing into thin strips. Sprinkle over a little finishing salt (solid move). 

Serve your unreal delicious Guinness Surf & Turf with your favourite seasonal veggies, and of course, a pint or 2 of the good stuff. Delicious!
