Marinated Steak over Green Salad

Food 2013 064

So this all started because I saw a recipe on Pinterest for the Best Steak Marinade in Existence.  You know I had to try it.  “The Best?”  Really?

So, I made steak one night.  Used the recipe from for the Best Steak Marinade in Existence.

It was REALLY good.  My kids ate it up and I made 2 steaks so I had plenty of yummy leftovers.  I actually ended up making 3 meals from the steak.

Steak Marinade:

  • 1/3 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/3 cup of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Garlic powder
  • 3 TBSP dried basil
  • 1 1/2 TBSP dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tsp minced garlic (we LOVE garlic so I changed to 3 tsp from 1 adjust to your taste)

Mix all ingredients in a Ziploc bag and add steak.  Marinate at least 1 hour up to 8 hours.


  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 1 cup of shredded lettuce
  • any of your favorite veggies – tomatoes, green peppers, onions, cucumbers, red peppers
  • 1/2 cup of steak Marinated, cooked and cubed
  • favorite cheese – Parmesan, cheddar, feta,
  • 3 tsp salad dressing

Mix all ingredients together and serve with a side of rolls or bread.

This was another of our to-go meals. The kids thought it was plenty filling and I was pleased that they were getting some greens and veggies.  I used the above recipe as one LARGE serving, a dinner salad.

It is getting tougher to come up with easy meals that my kids can eat in a car from one plastic bowl with one utensil.  I limit them to one utensil because I was losing forks and spoons at a rate to high to replace consistently and we all do not like plastic utensils that break.  I also like for the meals to cover all the bases – protein, vegetable, carb and dairy when possible.  It tends to keep them fuller during dance and the hour drive to and from the studio.
