Kick your summer grilling up a notch with this beer marinated grilled porterhouse steak topped with sauteed onions, blue cheese crumbles, and arugula.
Beer Marinated Grilled Porterhouse Steak
I mentioned recently that I’ve been grilling a lot more this summer than in previous years. Before that my husband was in charge of grilling. He makes a good steak, but I wondered what it would be like marinated in a hoppy beer like Blue Moon White IPA. It has a strong citrus taste, so I decided to experiment with flavors I normally wouldn’t put together, and make a marinate of the beer, garlic, and just a little bit of sriracha sauce. The result was fantastic!
Before I could make the marinade, I had to head to my local Price Chopper grocery store. They have everything you need for summer grilling covered (it’s where I found the cedar planks for my Cedar Plank Salmon, seriously the first time I saw cedar planks in a grocery store!). I planned on making the steaks the next day. The next day around noon, I got everything I needed ready to make the marinade,
mixed the beer, minced garlic, and sriracha together, then poured the marinade over the steak in a gallon freezer bag. I put it in the refrigerator for what I was planning on be about 6 hours, but then my husband’s uncle ended up in the hospital (he’s okay now). I ended up grilling the beer marinated porterhouse steak the next afternoon, but I did pull the steak out of the marinade, pat it dry, and place it in a new freezer bag after about 10 1/2 hours (I remember it was just about 10:30 PM). I did that because I was afraid that the vinegar in the sriracha would “cook” the steak. Once I finally got to the grill:
Resting (make sure you do this!):
Plated and topped:
And the most important part, eating! Paired with a Miller Lite so I could really enjoy the flavor of the steak.
It wasn’t spicy at all, just really flavorful. I’m sure I’ll be making it again before the summer is over!
- 1 pound porterhouse steak, trimmed of excess fat
- 1 bottle Blue Moon White IPA
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon sriracha
- salt and pepper
- canola oil, for brushing
- ¼ of a red onion
- 1 tablespoon butter, for sauteing the onion
- ⅛ cup blue cheese crumbles
- small handful fresh arugula
- In a small bowl, mix together the beer, minced garlic, and sriracha. Place the steak in a seal-able freezer bag and pour the beer mixture over the steak. Seal the bag, pushing out excess air from the bag, and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (do NOT marinate overnight).
- Take the steak out of the refrigerator, remove from the bag, season with salt and pepper, and place on a plate to come to room temperature, about one hour.
- Saute the onions over medium heat until just softened. Turn off the heat and let the onions sit in the pan while you grill the steak.
- Lightly oil the grates of the grill with canola oil or vegetable oil. Heat the grill to HIGH.
- Brush the steak lightly with canola oil. Place on the grill, close the lid, and cook for 5 minutes. Turn down the grill only if it flares up. After 5 minutes, turn the steak with a pair of long tongs, and cook for 5 more minutes for medium (160 degrees F).
- Remove from the grill to a clean plate and let rest for 5-10 minutes while you reheat the onions over medium-high heat. Top the steak with the onions, blue cheese, and arugula. Enjoy with a ice cold Miller Lite.
The steak can sit in the marinade for up to 10 hours.

I really enjoyed this steak! My husband enjoys having a Blue Moon White IPA at the Arena Bar and Grill in Wilkes-Barre on occasion, and I usually order a Miller Lite at the Pour House where my friend Amanda Jane works, or at Charlie’s Cafe in Ashley.
