Belgian Beer no.18: Florival

I assume this can only happen in Belgium: a supermarket assigning an abbey to produce beers just for this particular supermarket. Not that I had an idea about all this before buying the beer. But indeed, it seem Florival has been especially ordered by the Delhaize.
So today I bought Florival. Produced since 1993, Florival is a blond beer of 7% which has a bitter beer taste. Florival is brewed at the Affligem Brewery

Rum steak with dark Florival (serves 1)

650gr rum steak
1 bottle dark Florival
2tbsp chopped garlic
2tbsp chopped shallots
2tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 oranges – juice
4tbsp brown sugar
1tbsp mustard
2tbsp olive oil
salt, pepper, chilli

In a bowl mix the beer, the garlic, shallots, Worcestershire sauce, chilli, orange juice, sugar and mustard. Add 2tbsp olive oil.
Cover the rum steak with the marinade, and leave for at least 1h.
Heat the oven / barbecue.
Pour the marinade into a bowl. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and reduce the sauce.
Dry the steaks and sprinkle some olive oil on top.
Grill the steaks 2min on one side, 1min on the other. Seazon.
Serve with the beer sauce.
