I liked this marinade. Didn't overpower the steak flavor. Left them quite tender. I marinated for about 3-4 hours. Curious why not to marinate it overnight?

I thought this was delicious! I have no idea what the steaks at Outback are like (don't care for chain restaurants) but this was good. The beer tenderizes the steak and the seasonings with the brown sugar create a nice crust. Will definitely use this recipe again.

I marinated the steaks but then we ended up going out for dinner that night. I cooked them the next day and they were fine. Maybe had more beer flavor, I'm not sure.
The sweet rub was good.

Actually they do marinate their steaks in 11 spices but the guy wouldnt tell me which.

This recipe doesn't turn out to be even close to the flavor of Outback's steaks. It's more of a teriyaki flavor, not bad at all but definately nothing like what I was hoping for.

I don't know if outback steakhouse marinates their steaks or not, this recipe was really good. I added a little cayenne to the seasoned salt/brown sugar rub for a little extra kick and then cooked the steaks in on my cast iron griddle instead of grilling because it was raining (I'm not that much of a die-hard griller!). Beer has always been a great tenderizer for beef and using good quality is highly recommended as it will impart some flavor onto the meat.

Made this with a gluten free beer for the marinade since I can't have regular beer. Not sure if it changed the flavor from the original recipe but it was very good. I also make my own seasoned salt since most commercial brands aren't gluten free, so again my recipe might have turned out different but we really enjoyed it. Will definitely be making this again and again since it's so simple and tasty.
