Marinade for Steak

Marinade for Steak created by Peter J

We've been using this marinade for 25 years and never tire of it. The taste is wonderful and, if left overnight, the marinade helps to tenderize the steaks. (If tenderness is a big issue, add a couple of tablespoons of vinegar to the recipe below). Prep time does not include time for marinading.

    Great marinade. If you have a food sealer I suggest you place the steak in the bag and run the marinade function. Strapped for time I had it marinate for ~20mins under pressure while I prepped the remaining dinner. Too easy. Alternative to Red Wine, use equivalent measure of Jack Daniels, add some Chipotle chillies and place in a BBQ with some hickory chips. Sensational flavour.

    Loved it! Marinated a top round steak for about 4 hours in fridge, added a very nice flavor. Didn't have any red wine, so used red wine vinegar and turned out great. Will definitely try to marinate longer next time, but still good with a few hours! Thanks for posting.

    Very different and flavorful marinade. Used Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce and marinated New York strip steaks overnight. These were melt in your mouth with a wonderful flavor. Will definitely use this marinate again. May try it on pork chops next. Thanks for sharing!

    Great combination. Used this for T bone steaks and left them over night. I turned the meat after several hours on one side. Steaks had a nice flavor and tender.
