Annelie's Steak Carpet-Bagger

When in Ireland you must visit the coastal area of Kinsale. That's where I met Bob Carpenter, owner and chef at Annelie's Restaurant. This bustling seaside town not only produces some of the best stout, they are also known for their cuisine. And, hey, with a name like "carpet-bagger," how could you go wrong?

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, mix the Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke. Place the fillets in the mixture and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
