World’s Best Steak Marinade


Food 2013 075

We are a family of carnivores.  A few times we have tried going vegetarian or semi-vegetarian but the smell of a really good steak cooking always seems to lure us back.  Even my mostly vegetarian daughter can’t resist a good steak.  The other night when I made a comment about my daughter being mostly vegetarian my son commented, “I could easily be a vegetarian too if meat didn’t taste so darn good!”

When I saw the recipe for “Best Steak Marinade in Existence” from Plainchicken.com I was skeptical.

You know when you see Best… you have to try it.  I thought for sure this would be okay but not the best steak marinade in existence.

Verdict:

I think it was pretty amazing.  I marinated two steaks and we ate three different meals using the leftover steaks.  It made every dish I added the steak to taste better because of the additional flavor it brought to all the dishes.

I used gluten-free Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce so that my mostly gluten-free son could eat the same meat as we did.

Ingredients:

  • 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)

Directions:

  1.  Mix all ingredients in a Ziploc bag and add steak.
  2. Marinate at least 1 hour up to 8 hours.
  3. Cook as you normally would a steak.
