Steak Marinade Recipes, Hints & Videos

Making steak tonight but need a steak marinade recipe? We've got what you're looking for! Marinating is the process of soaking meat in an acidic liquid such as lemon or lime juice. Other great marinades include wine, yogurt or soy sauce, and a blend of herbs and spices. Traditionally this method is used to flavor and tenderize tougher cuts of meat such as chuck and round steak.

The process of marinating causes the meat to break down on a molecular level, rendering the steak more tender. The steak also becomes infused with the flavors of the marinade further adding to the quality of the meal. After the meat has been marinated for 1 hour to up to one day it can be prepared in a variety of ways including grilling and frying. But whatever method you choose to cook your marinated steak, remember to never use the same liquid you used to marinate the meat to baste it, as any harmful bacteria that would be cooked out of the meat will be reintroduced during the basting process.

Marinating steak is the simplest and tastiest way to take an average cut of meat and turn it into something spectacular. You can start with a basic steak marinade and move on to more complicated flavors like poblano peppers or pineapples.

Mix all ingredients together. Next, prick the steak with a fork on both sides of the meat. I also prick the sides of the steak too. Put steak in a Tupperware Marinade pan or you can use a large zip lock storage bag. Pour marinade sauce over the steak. Next, close the top onto the bottom pan or zip up the storage bag. Marinate 2-3 hours (or overnight) turning over occasionally to evenly marinate the meat. Broil or grill the meat. Enough marinade for a 1-2 lb. steak
