This was a favorite when I was growing up!! We rarely had meat but when we did, we sure loved the bold flavors this marinade brought out!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

During the summer grilling season, grilled steak is a must. This recipe is for a marinade that will give your steaks tons of flavor. It has an Asian flair. The ingredients in the Beau Monde seasoning are unique but work together. We let our steaks marinate overnight. They had not only a rich color but also flavor. Simple to throw together, this will break the rut we sometimes get into when grilling a steak.

How To Make bold tastin' grilled steak

Test Kitchen Tips
If you can't find Kitchen Bouquet, Gravy Master is a great alternative (substitute with 2 tablespoons).
  • Mixing together Beau Monde seasoning.
    Mix together all 9 Beau Monde Seasoning spices and place in a small jar or zipper bag. (I couldn't find ground bay leaves so I used my blender to grind up 2 bay leaves.)
  • Soy sauce, onion, and garlic in a food chopper.
    Combine soy sauce, onion, and garlic in the container of an electric blender. Cover and process at high speed for about 1 min. or until the mixture is very smooth.
  • Adding gravy coloring to mixture.
    Stir in gravy coloring.
  • Adding spices to marinade.
    Stir in Beau Monde seasoning.
  • Marinade poured over steaks in a glass dish.
    Arrange the meat in a shallow baking dish. (I prefer to use gallon zipper bags.) Pour 1/2 c marinade over top, for each piece of meat. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
  • Grilling the marinated steaks.
    Allow to stand at room temperature for 2 hours before grilling. On your favorite grill, slightly oil, then place the meat on top and cook to your desired preference.
