RECIPE: BEST STEAK MARINADE ON THE PLANET!

Six or eight years ago, Ray surprised me at Christmas with a Big Green Egg. It was the start of learning to smoke and grill in a vastly different way than I knew in the past! I have loved that 'grill' and it has been the inspiration for a multitude of recipes. 

A few weeks ago my father visited and I bought a beef tenderloin, sliced it and marinated it over night. We had guests over to visit for dinner with my Dad and every one of them raved about the steak. Now, mind you, I only marinated it - one of our friends did the difficult part - manning the grill!

We still swear by this marinate. If you try it, let me know what you think...

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 3 TBSP minced garlic
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 2 TBSP olive oil (I use bacon olive oil when I have it on-hand)
  • 2 TSP ground, smoked black pepper
  • 1 TSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 TSP Onion Powder

DIRECTIONS:

Combine all ingredients in a gallon sized freezer bag. Marinate for at least a couple of hours - it's even better if marinated overnight. I turn the bag every couple of hours. Then, drain, pat dry and grill. 

I have also prepared the marinade in the freezer bag and frozen the steaks for weeks. Thaw, drain, pat dry and grill as above.

ENJOY!

Debe Maxwell, CRS  the only time I eat red meat is if we are in  a restaurant and now even that is rare. I would love this, but it has been a long time since I cooked red meat at home....Endre

Endre Barath, Jr., did you get a grill on your range? I have one and that helps during inclement weather. 

That said, I oftentimes prepare 'different' main dishes for Ray and me - I'll have sashimi and grill a steak for him! The sides are the same and it's easy to throw only one steak on the grill - especially when I'm grilling inside!

If you try it, Kat Palmiotti, let me know what you think! When we had our friends over when my Dad was here, I was surprised at the response. I was sure that I had grilled for all of them in the past. Now, I know what to prepare for my next dinner party though! LOL

Hey Debe Maxwell, CRS  I have not grilled outdoors in over 9+ years so with that said I did not want to grill indoors either:)Endre

Debe unlike my friend Endre I grill outside as often as I can, especially steak, so I am going to give this a try.

The ingredients in that marinade sound really good.  I've not heard of Bacon Olive Oil before.  I'm going to look for it.
