I was wondering why the used marinade wouldn't be fine, if the sauce will be simmered long enough to thicken. I think that should kill any micro-organisms.

Of course it will. Any nasties that are present in the marinade are also on the meat itself, so if cooking the meat makes it safe, why wouldn't cooking the marinade do the same thing?

I'm guessing SLoB thought she meant she would simmer the steak in the marinade.

Y'know, I don't know why I never thought to utilize my cast iron skillet to do a steak, but yeah, that would make a wonderful "crust" and then add the sauce after ... MMM! Now I want a steak!

Oh oh oh!
And RT, this may sound extremely elementary but when you slice the steak, do so going across rather than with the grain of the meat to insure tenderness, going with the grain will make the meat tough as shoe leather, for sure!
But I'd beat that you know this already

Thanks! Chef John covered how to cut the steak in his video.

Several times he's also covered if and how we should use the leftover marinade. The original video has us simmering the sauce for 5 minutes. Plus after the sauce simmers, he uses it to baste the meat over the grill 5 minutes per side, so my thinking is if the meat is basted and then put sauce side down on the grill for 5 minutes, it's probably safe.

When I cook my chicken in their respective sauces, they usually cook in the sauce for 40 minutes to an hour, depending if I'm making legs or breasts and I've never had a problem.

So this turned out OK, except I didn't like the sauce.

I have been using marinades as sauces for years. I pull the meat out of the marinade, dump the marinade into a saucier, and bring it to a boil (while stirring, of course). Nothing bad is going to survive boiling temperatures. If you add a thickener, you'll need to bring it to a boil, anyway, although I usually just simmer the marinade without a lid to reduce it.

If I taste my marinade before I use it, and it tastes good, it seems to always taste good as a sauce. Not all marinades taste good on there own. Did you taste the Chef John beer marinade before you used it?

Ni, because I hate tasting things before I'm ready to eat them. I have no idea why - it's just something I don't do.

Tasting food as I'm going along is one of the first things I learned after I joined this site. If you don't, you really have no idea what the outcome will be. If you do, you have opportunities to tweak it - add more salt or a spice (not necessarily referring to heat) or herbs, or a splash of vinegar or lemon juice for brightness, or Worcestershire or soy sauce for increased savoriness. I even cook a tablespoon of a sausage mixture to make sure the seasoning is right before I cook the whole batch.

My cooking improved a lot once I started doing that.

Tasting as you go is the only way to really know if you are getting correct seasoning and flavoring in a dish. Granted that not all foods can be tasted as you go, but anything that can be tasted, should be.
