Amazing Ginger-Garlic Steak Marinade

"This marinade tenderizes the steaks and makes them absolutely delicious. You won't need steak sauce for this one! I will sometimes use it on a big London broil which I'll slice against the grain. The result is tender and really delicious. I never measure anything for this. It's hard to mess up. Prep time doesn't include time marinating in the fridge."

Ready In:




  • Throw all ingredients in a Ziplock bag with your steaks.
  • Refrigerate overnight (tastes best), or for at least two hours.
  • Cook your steaks however you want.
  • Some people will probably scream unsanitary, but I like to boil down the marinade until it thickens in the same pan I cook my steaks in, and serve it as a pan sauce. I'm not dead yet!
  • Enjoy!

  1. Made it, ate it, good
  2. steak sounds wonderful, will try over the weekend, I just want to know, why is it unsanitary to cook the marinade and use it as a sauce??? sounds great to me!
  3. This is my new go-to steak marinade. I had some not so tender tri-tip steaks in the freezer. A couple of hours in this mixture and they cut like butter. The flavor is wonderful, not too sweet like some.
  4. This is the greatest marinade I have ever tasted..We used to just season the steaks and usa A1 sauce but now i use this and I dont need A1...Thanks!!!!
  5. I cut this in half for 3 rib-eyes, and loaded it up with fresh garlic and ginger. I also added a shot of olive oil. Marinaded the steaks for a couple hours, then tossed them onto a hot cast iron griddle. Delicious! I didn't have rice wine vinegar, so I substituted apple cider vinegar. These steaks tasted fabulous and we've found a new favorite. Thanks for a winner!


  1. Tried this recipe and it was awesome but I used balsamic vinegar instead of rice vinegar and smothered the steaks with balsamic vinegar,garlic and olive oil, and teriyaki sauce with salt and pepper to taste in mushrooms
