Melt in Your Mouth Steak

"This steak is very very delicious and juicy. My mother says I have spoiled her and swears it is better than the "Outback Steakhouse." If you like tender, juicy steak here it is. Prep time includes an hour for marinating. The longer the better!! If you want to decrease serving size it is not necessary to decrease amount of marinade."

Ready In:
1hr 20mins




  • Place thawed steak in a casserole dish fit to size of steaks.
  • Sprinkle desired amount of meat tenderizer on one side of each steak and then, using a fork, fork the meat tenderizer into the steak very thoroughly (you cannot overdo it, the more the better!) Flip each steak over and repeat step 2 on other side of steak.
  • Combine last seven ingredients in a separate bowl and microwave for 2 minutes.
  • Pour mixture over steaks (the heated mixture helps the sugar dissolve and the meat soak the marinade up better but is not required).
  • Marinate desired time however the longer the better.
  • Put the steak on the grill and cook it how you like it.
  • (I usually save the marinade and baste in while cooking, this keeps it extra juicy) Enjoy!

  1. Oh my gosh. This was out of this world. No need for steak sause for this steak. I used New York Strips and marinated them for 3 hrs. I will probably marinate them longer next time. Thank you so much Chance
  2. Please try this! I marinated our sirloin steaks for 24 hours. This sauce produced the most incredible flavor. I will definately be using it often.
  3. This was WONDEFUL!!! The steaks were so tender you could cut them with a fork. This is a keeper...
  4. The Steak is very tender & juicy. It has excellent flavor as well and is fast and easy to prepare. Doris
  5. I decided to use the recipe for bone in pork chops and grilled them on the gas grill. OMG.. they were DELICIOUS! Moist.. tender.... I marinated them for about 5 hours. I can't wait to try steak!<br/>UPDATE: 5/8/2014 I have now used this marinade for pork chops, steak and chicken legs. For the chicken legs I just put the meat tenderizer into the marinade and not on the chicken. Take a look at the chicken legs on the grill. They were delicious!


  1. This marinade is awesome! I made it tonight with venison, and my family is still complimenting me on how tasty and tender the meat was. I did however not use the meat tenderizer, and used italian seasoning instead of thyme. Thank you so much for sharing!
  2. Wonderful flavor. I used basil instead of thyme - personal preference - and minced 2 large cloves of garlic. I marinated the sirloins for about 4 hours and grilled them to medium. The flavor was absolutely wonderful and the meat was very tender.My daughter had her new boyfriend over for dinner, and I wanted to impress. This worked. Will make again.
