This recipe comes from my Dad's recipe file. It's a real treat to visit and have Dad make his trademarked, perfectly grilled and seasoned porterhouse steaks! The marinade is so simple that I'm able to do it in 5 minutes before heading off to work in the morning. Enjoy!
- 2 (1 lb) porterhouse steaks
- 1⁄2 cup canola oil
- 1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
- Whisk together oil and vinegar until well blended, add remaining ingredients. Pour over porterhouse steaks, or any steak for that matter, in a dish or in a 1 gallon sized storage bag. Marinate at least 8 hours. Grill or broil and enjoy.
- Note: this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for more steaks.
I used this marinade on some T-bones. I added some coarse ground black pepper and used shallots instead of onion. The steaks were delicious, juicy, and tender. I brought them to room temperature before grilling and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. They certainly did not have the texture of "Rubbermaid". I actually tried your marinade before posting a review and I am glad I did. This would make a great marinade for less expensive cuts of beef. Let's face it, top cuts are not always in everyone's budget. Thanks for sharing your Dad's recipe with us!
This is a marinade that I adore. We used to use one almost identical to this (just added black pepper) on flank steak. It turned out delicious and *tender*. We all have our personal taste and this one suits us to a "T".
A very subtle marinade. I added 1 teaspoon of honey. Found that the marinade enhanced the flavor of the steak, Chef Bob's rant aside. Thanks for posting!
