marinated steak recipe

We are actually still on vacation, we are having quite the adventure.  Someday, we will actually get home, but I promised new content for today and new content it is.

It is really hard to make a brown piece of steak look appetizing so I am going to apologize in advance for the less than inspiring pictures to follow.  However, I urge you to make this marinade for the next steak you are planning on cooking.  You know that you love a recipe when you pull it out of your binder and there are soy sauce spots all over it.  This marinade is cinch to whip up and 9 times out of 10, I have everything in the house that I need to make it.  Sometimes though, the tomato paste throws me off.  Tomato paste is one of those things that I seem to hoard or have none of.  I swear that I buy it by the case load and then go to the store and am convinced that I have none at home so I buy more.  And other times I am convinced that I have hoarded quantities of tomato paste in my pantry when I am making tomato sauce and I have none.  This girl can’t win.

Whoa, what was that?  Tomato paste issues obvi.

Anyway, this marinade has one of my favorite flavors of all time.  Sherry.  I love sherry.  When I am an old lady I bet that I will be one of those little old ladies that sips sherry in the afternoon.  But not cooking sherry, I am too classy for that of course.  Fancy sherry.  The sherry I used to cook with is very un-fancy.  This steak is absolute perfection on its own.  But, just maybe, you want to fancy it up?  Saute some mushrooms in a little butter and deglaze the pan with the same sherry and mirror the flavors in the marinade and the mushrooms.  I am salivating.

    oh my this looks delish! i’m always looking for ways to fancy up the beef :) think we will try this out this week!

  2. I’m always looking for a good steak marinade and this looks great. I usually wind up just using healthy sprinkling of kosher salt and cracked black pepper, which is good…but can get old. Thanks for the recipe!

    OK. I don’t get along very well with wine, and so I guess it may not be as tender if I don’t use mit but what would be a good substitute? Or is there a good one? I hope so. This certainly sounds good.
