Recipes For a Gourmand


(A gourmand is someone who takes great pleasure in consuming excellent food in large amounts.)


A terrific marinade for flank steak, skirt steak or London Broil starts with a primary ingredient— Coors Beer. The recipe follows:

  • 2 Cups of Coors Light beer
  • One minced green jalapeno-no seeds
  • ½ cup of bees honey
  • ¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • One cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup of 100% pure peanut oil
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tablespoons BBQ sauce
  •  1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 3 Minced Large Cloves Garlic

Start with a large mixing bowl.  Add the ingredients together and blend using a large whisk.  Whip the ingredients until the mixture has a consistent color and the contents seemed to be properly mixed.  I used three pounds of flank steak that I had the butcher at Fresh Market cut for me.  I then placed the steaks in a large Tupperware Marinating container and pored the mixture over the meat. I let the steaks stand in the mixture for 24 hours, turning the container over every two hours when I was awake. I set aside a small portion of the marinade that had not been in contact with the meet for basting when I grilled the meet the next day.  The meat was unbelievably tender and very tasty.  ENJOY GOOD EATING!
