    I would put beer in almost everything. The flavor goes well in almost any food you can think of, especially steaks and burgers. Not a surprise that it won

    Alcohol is not normally used in marinades if you want the flavor of the drink you need to flame off the alcohol first.

    If you do something like this again, you should use an Islay scotch. It is a lot smokier, so I think it may compliment it Wwell.

    Would have liked to have seen bourbon for USA, but moonshine was surprising.

  • Lunay LeZarde
    Lunay LeZarde 11 days ago

    First, how could you not find Guinness? Second, while moonshine is undoubtedly American, I'd have to say that bourbon is far more representative of American tastes in liquor. Why so? Because moonshine can be made anywhere, but authentic bourbon can only be made in America.

    Alcohols taste different with different steaks. Also, if you had marinated then removed the marinade, this would’ve turned out far different.

    Hold up everyone says Guinness for Ireland but you said liquor. Why not Jameson whiskey? Otherwise Guinness would've been an interesting flavor with the nitrogen and dark coffee and chocolate profiles. TRY MORE BEERS

    Hey you can re do the video and just cook down the alcohols be for you put it in the bag , it will leave the flavor and take away some of the alcohol taste. You can also add difent things to the different countries bags that compliment the regin and alcohol corresponding with the counties

    How about Kilkenny for a beer marinade? It's an Irish dark ale. Gorgeous flavour, not sure how it goes with a steak.

  • Richard Scheibel

    The problem with this test is that alcohol will not burn off until it gets to about 175 degrees. even the searing will not cause most of the alcohol to evaporate. They were tasting the harsh alcohol not the underlying flavors. The reason they liked the beer best is because it has the lowest alcohol content. I still have to agree that the plain one is the way to go.

  • Paul Garza

    Bro Guinness.

  • Not important Username

    Was really hoping you soaked a steak in Jaegermeister

  • Fernando Colombo de Amo

    You gotta eat the picanha steak with rock salt only and drink cachaça but not 51, we have better cachaças here. 51 cachaça is only good when you make caipirinha drink.

    In México we dont marinade steaks with alcohol since alcohol can wash out the flavor and fat. If you want to use alcohol in any steak use as "flambé", the same goes for fish. Birds can go well with white wine but don't leave it more than 2 hours.

    Before whatching I can already say, Heineken, vodka and probably (not a thing in germany) Moonshine are going to taste horrible (because Heineken is disgusting IMO), zequila, scotch, etc. are going to taste okay and red rine is going to taste good, because in Germany meat with red wine is eaten by some people (but not with steak, mostly deer or boar etc). I don't like it but many people I know love it, same with Calvados.

    • xGxPhantom Zzz
      xGxPhantom Zzz 2 months ago

      Should have chosen a really nice beer, a good beer marinade tastes nice. Has to be a darker, strong beer and don't cheap out.
