I have found that by using a few simple ingredients and a cast iron skillet I can bake even the cheapest, crappiest cuts of steak taste yummy just like a restaurant steak.
And who doesn’t love a restaurant quality steak at a fraction of the cost and the ability to make it in their own home at a moments notice?
Because its March and I’m all about Irish cooking this month, I paired my skillet steak with some Guinness. The result was fan-tab-u-lous. Not to mention it paired really well with my Guinness Grilled Shrimp I whipped up for a chef challenge.
Now, if you are wondering if the old-fashioned Irish really cooked with Guinness, I can tell you they most certainly did. Guinness has been around since 1759. It is one of the most successful beer brands around the world. Did you know that Guinness is brewed in almost 60 countries and is available in 100 of them? I didn’t either until I checked out Wikipedia. But, I did know it had been around at least since 1800. I was only off by 50 years.
