This is an excellent marinade from Martha Stewart. It is my go-to marinade for steaks. It sounded like a lot of garlic the first time I made it but I'm glad I kept the 4 cloves!


  1. Whisk together soy sauce, olive oil, garlic cloves, and lemon juice.
  2. Place steak in a nonreactive dish, and pour marinade over top.
  3. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight).

This is an excellent marinade. I ran out of time so this is what I did. I mixed the marinade in an oblong glass pan. Then I put it into the microwave a couple of minutes to get it hot. Then I put my frozen steaks in the marinade. I left them for about 10 minutes and then turned them over. Three times after that I turned the meat after microwaving the meat in the marinade for 5 minutes each time at power 30%. The I cooked them on my grill pan until medium rare. They wre wonderful. So if you don't have time to marinade for hours...this is a short cut. BTW I think this would be a good marinade for chicken as well. Made for Spring PAC 2010

I did exactly as directed. The steak was in the marinade at least 5 hours. I will have to try overnight. But I didn't have time. We loved the taste. Thanks Funfetti :) Made for PAC Spring 2010
