I LOVED IT!! My husband always seasons the steaks and he was not happy when he saw me pouring lemmon pepper all over his precious t bones but they were fabulous. Very juicy due to the beer and so simple to make. I used Shiner Bock beer and I would definately reccoment a dark beer.

This was not good. I wont make it again. Just a waste of good ribeye steaks. I was really excited to try this recipe but was sorely disappointed.

I am by no means a cook. I am just starting out, and my fiance and I made this recipe last night and it was fabulous! We used a frying pan as well since we do not own a grill. I am just amazed at myself that I can cook something tasty! ;)

I marinated mine too long. We were having grill problems and I left the steak in the marinade close to 3 hours. The steak was dry but had a nice flavor. I will definately try it again and marinate it for about an 1-1 1/2 hours.

The flavor of these steaks is almost indescribable - the beer and lemon pepper combine nicely to lend a rich, robust taste to the meat. As a meat tenderizer, you couldn't have better - before marinating, I had two pretty tough cuts of beef, but by the time they were on the plates, the knife went through them like soft butter. I marinated them for about 2 1/2 hours and then poured the leftover juices into the pan to bubble right along with the meat for about 5 minutes, and I think it made the difference in sealing the flavor. I wasn't real wild about trying this recipe (I HATE beer), but I think this one's a winner! Next time I may attempt it with garlic cloves and onion powder. A keeper!

I was very sSurprised at how good this tastes! I was a bit leary of lemon pepper and beer, but it really works!

This was AWFUL! I used Killians beer and followed the directions. The lemon pepper did not go well with the beer. Yuck!

I loved this marinade. Although nothing fancy, it was easy and the steak melted in our mouths. If you don't like pepper I would cut back on the lemon pepper a little. Also, I used Newcastle beer.
