The key to cooking the perfect steak is having the right marinade. My Marinated Steak recipe shows you how to get the flavor you’re after in a few simple steps.

Step 1:

This is the easiest recipe ever. Put everything in a bowl. (This is my method of choice for mincing garlic. Grate it with a microplane. Perfect, just watch out for your fingernails.)

Step 2:

Stir it around.

Step 3:

Pour the marinade in a Ziploc bag.

Step 4:

Insert beef of some sort. This is an organic and grass fed tri-tip. It is the littlest tri-tip that I have ever seen. It was so cute that I had to buy it. Flank steak, London Broil, Sirloin, any cuts works and every cut will benefit from this amazing marinade.

Step 5:

Squeeze the air out of the bag and put the bag into a pan. Just in case. I don’t want to clean marinade out of the fridge, do you? I had it happen once and it was ugly. So now I use insurance.

Here is our grilled marinated steak. It was delicious. And I would like another one. Right now.

The Perfect 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.

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.

Balsamic vinegar would be great...

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!
