Steak, rice & drunk salsa

It’s that time of the week again – Friday! What’s more fitting on a Friday than a recipe including alcohol, and this one certainly has it, both in the steak marinade as much as it has in the salsa. First time I stumbled upon a drunken salsa recipe, I was very interested how it would turn out, come to think of it I was certain it wasn’t going to be much, but I was absolutely wrong. Salsa turned out delicious, full of that smokey flavour coming from dark beer and spicy from the chili. Well, I’m leaving you to check the recipe out for yourselves and recommend giving it a try!

Hope you’ll have an amazing weekend that’s ahead and not party too much.. Stay tuned because I have a very tasty recipe coming up tomorrow!

Steak, rice & vegetable salsa

How to

  1. Whisk together salt, ground white pepper, red paprika, crushed garlic, dark beer, teriyaki sauce and a pinch of sugar in a small bowl. Season pork steaks with the mix of spices and set aside to marinade for at least 15 to 30 min.
  2. While the steaks marinade, prepare Salsa. Heat olive oil in a medium sauce pan, add diced onion and let it saute until soft for a few minutes. Then add diced carrot, eggplant, zucchini, garlic and let them simmer. After a few minutes stir in diced tomatoes, tomato paste, dark beer, jalapenos, chili powder and some salt to season. Cook to a boil and lower the heat so the vegetables cook in the sauce. Reduce the sauce until thick and all of the flavours have combined.
  3. For rice, heat olive oil in a second medium sauce pan. Add onion and let it cook on each side until light brown. Remove onion but keep the olive oil, add rice and pour some of the vegetable stock over it. Let the rice cook, season it with some salt, parsley and nutmeg while pouring in the rest of the vegetable stock. Cook rice until soft and cooked all the way through.
  4. Heat a large non-stick grill pan and splash with a bit of oil. Grill marinated steaks for a few minutes on each side. Serve steaks marinated in beer with rice and drunk salsa. Enjoy!

    I’m so intrigued by the drunk salsa! I wonder if it would work with gluten-free beer! Allergies are annoying!
