Guinness Beer-Barbecued Beef Roast

Guinness Beer-Barbecued Beef Roast

Beer and beef, what better combination could you ask for? A well-marbled cut of beef provides the necessary flavour to this dish, along with Dijon, and fresh tarragon. Remember, this recipe only calls for a quarter cup of Guinness, so…enjoy! 

  • Ingredients

    ½ cup canola oil (125 mL) 

    ¼ cup Guinness beer  (60 mL) 

    2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (10 mL) 

    1 Tbsp brown sugar (15 mL) 

    2 cloves garlic, minced  (2) 

    1 shallot, very finely chopped (1) 

    ½ tsp pepper  (2 mL) 

    2 tsp Dijon mustard  (10 mL) 

    2 Tbsp chopped fresh tarragon (30 mL) 

    1 – 4 lb well-marbled beef outside round roast  (2 kg) 

  • Directions
    1. Combine first 9 ingredients in medium bowl. Mix well. Pour into a large re-sealable plastic bag.
    2. Pierce roast all over with a carving fork or large skewer. Add the beef roast to the marinade, seal the bag and marinate the roast in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
    3. Drain marinade from the roast and discard. Place the roast on a rack in a roasting pan. Cook roast on barbecue, using indirect heat, for 1 ½ to 2 hours or to internal temperature of 145°F (62°C) for medium-rare beef.
