I don't know where I picked this up. I've been doing it since I first started cooking, and it's just a great flavor for steaks. I'd suggest at least a nights worth of soaking if you have the time to. The main flavor in this marinade is the Italian mixed with the Worcestershire.
- This recipe is best if you beat the steaks and stab it a few times with a fork so the juice can soak into the meat.
- Mix Italian dressing and Worcestershire sauce. This is the main thing--if you would like to add more or less of either, just make sure the Worcestershire isn't overpowering the Italian dressing.
- Add minced onion, garlic powder, seasoned salt and pepper to tastes. I usually use at least a shake or two from each bottle, a little lighter on the salt and pepper then the other two, but its not a science in the recipe, just go with your tastes.
This was a great marinade for our Bison sirloin steaks. I used Good Seasons homemade dressing and added all of the optional seasonings. I marinated the steaks for 8 hours and they were tender and juicy.
I added about 3 T. dehydrated onions, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. fresh cracked pepper, and just a few shakes of salt. I marinated my London Broil steak, stabbing it all over with a fork so the marinade would soak into the meat. I marinated for about 9 hours, then grilled it on my George Foreman grill inside. The steak went great with some garlic mashed potatoes and peas. Thank you! Dave
Excellent marinade! I cut everything in half as my steaks were pretty thin and let marinade for a day and they turned out wonderfully. This marinade has such a delicious flavor. Thanks for posting, I will definitely be using this again!
