Steak Marinade

Ginger Porter


My husband won't eat a steak unless I have marinaded it with this marinade I came up with. I am a cook who doesn't measure. My kids requested that I start measuring their favorite recipes so that they can recreate the same tastes from mom's cooking, when I leave this mortal world...=) I managed to write it down for them. It will take even a very cheap cut of steak and make it mouth watering. Just leave in the marinade longer.

pinch tips: How to Measure Ingredients



6 large steaks


15 Min


1/4 c
steak seasoning (montreal works best.)
1 c
olive oil
2-3 Tbsp
balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp
light soy sauce
1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1-2 Tbsp
finely chopped garlic
2-3 Tbsp
mae ploy sweet chili sauce (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all of the ingredients together with a whisk. I mix until the sauce is thickened or emulsified.
Place steaks in a ziploc baggie or casserole dish. Pour marinade over the steaks. If you are using a good rib eye or new york strip, a couple of hours is sufficient. If you are using a leaner, less expensive cut, marinade over night for a tender juicy steak.
While the steaks are marinading, flip them a few times or massage them if they are in a baggie.
When you are ready to cook, pull the steaks out of the marinade and place on a hot grill. Rub them around in the marinade before cooking. Don't scrape off the marinade. That's it! Great for a roast also.
