50 Shades of Steak: The Sexy Filet


Want a more interesting steak filet? Get it tipsy.

This Abita-based marinade adds a depth of flavor to your steak that is sure to impress.


Abita TurboDog
  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle Abita Turbodog ale
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco chipotle pepper sauce
  • 2 beef tenderloin steak filets, 2-3 inches thick
  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon
  1. Add the beer, garlic, onion powder and chipotle to bowl. Whisk lightly.
  2. Pour the beer marinade into a shallow pan, place the filets in the pan and let them chill in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours.
  3. In a charcoal grill, bring temperature to high heat (400 degrees).
  4. Wrap a strip of thick-cut bacon around each steak, securing it with a chef’s twine or skewers.
  5. Grill the steaks over hot coals for about 4 to 5 minutes per side for rare/medium rare, depending on thickness. You can go as long at eight minutes per side for well-done, but we don’t recommend it.

Happy Grilling!
