This is the best steak marinade! A delicious and easy homemade marinade that’s bursting with flavor! Perfect for any cut of beef, but absolutely divine on Ribeye steaks!
The countdown to Memorial Weekend is on and Father’s Day is just around the corner! The grill has been broken in for the season and we’re looking forward to many more afternoons and evenings of preparing our meals out on the deck. We’re big fans of steak in our house, and here in the Midwest, we have some of the best beef around!
I’ve been preparing this homemade steak marinade for a few years now and have found it to be one of the best recipes I have. It’s so easy to throw together in the morning. During the day you’ll have trouble taking your mind off of the wonderful meal that awaits you! I normally broil or grill the steaks after using this marinade.
I start by mixing my concoction of sauces, herbs, garlic and onions in a bowl.
Ribeyes are already one of the most flavorful cuts, and when you pair them with this marinade, it’s heaven. Can you see how I used my fork to poke little holes into the steak? This is to help tenderize the meat and get the marinade right into the center of the meat.
It really can’t get much easier than this. After I mix everything, I place the steaks into a Ziploc bag and pour the marinade right in. Now, I like to leave the onions in chunks and the rosemary floating around the liquid. If you’re averse to chunks and roughage, you can always place all of the ingredients into a food processor until well blended and then pour into the bag.
Allow the marinade to infuse the meat for at least four hours. When the meat is ready, it will have soaked up most of the marinade in the bag believe it or not.
And, this is when my hubby steps in. He’s the “Grill Master” of the family, or so he likes to be called. I can’t deny he does a killer job. If you think these steaks look good, you should taste the salmon he makes on the grill! We use my famous Brown Sugar Salmon Marinade and the fish just melts in your mouth.
I hope you enjoy this marinade recipe as much as we do. Just writing this post is making my mouth water. Thank goodness warm weather is finally here! I have a feeling I’m going to be giving our grill a workout this summer!
The Best Steak Marinade
A delicious marinade, bursting with flavor! Perfect for any cut of beef, but absolutely divine on Ribeye steaks!
- 1/4 cup Worchestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 5 tablespoons soy sauce
- small onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon garlic pepper
- 1 tablespoon crushed, dried rosemary
- 1/4 cup minced garlic
- 3 tablespoons steak seasoning ( I use McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning)
- 3 tablespoons A1 Steak Sauce
- 4 Ribeye steaks (about 10 oz. each)
- Combine all ingredients (except steaks) in a bowl and mix well.
- Pierce steaks on both sides with a fork, and place into a Ziploc bag. Pour marinade over steaks and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight for the flavors to infuse the meat.
When combining all of the ingredients, you could put the mixture into a food processor to get rid of the chunks of onion, etc. – I, however, prefer the larger pieces of garlic and onion on the steaks. It’s all personal preference! The recipe makes enough to marinade 4 – 10 oz. steaks. If your steaks are larger, double the recipe. The meat will soak up all of the goodness!
