If you read my blog regularly you might know that I don’t like beer all that much. The worst beer I’ve ever had has to be Guinness. It’s just way too bitter for me. When an Irish friend of mine visited his homestead he brought back with him a bottle of Guinness steak sauce for me. This made me somewhat hesitant to use, but I’m always in for an adventure and I like cooking so nothing was going to stop me from using it.
Funnily enough I’m also not a fan of steak, but I had found a different use for it. I decided to mix it in with some baked beans to make a breakfast burrito. That actually worked quite well because of the slight smokiness of the steak sauce. Trying the sauce on its own though was a whole different experience. That bitterness I associate with Guinness was there with a vengeance. I won’t be putting it on any steaks, but I’ll still be able to use it in cooking.
