Memorial Day is just a few days away, and you know what that means! It’s time to light up the grill for hamburgers and hot dogs and to enjoy a beer with friends and family. To spice up this weekend’s feast with new flavors, you should try some delicious dishes specifically made by incorporating the rich taste of Guinness, inspired by the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.
Justin O’Connor, Executive Chef of Guinness Storehouse, was good enough to share the recipe for his amazing Guinness BBQ Marinade, which is to die for! You can be sure I’ll be making good use of this marinade throughout the summer! Check it out:
Guinness BBQ Marinade
200ml of Guinness reduced over heat to 50ml
8 Fl oz of olive oil
30grams crushed fresh ginger
4 cloves of crushed garlic
2 tbsp of chopped, thyme, rosemary, parsley and sage
2 Fl oz of honey
Salt & fresh black pepper
Mix all in a bowl and use for all meats and fish before Barbequing.
And of course, what summer BBQ is complete without some refreshing alcoholic beverages? Here are three options worth checking out this weekend:
