Steakhouse Marinade

Grilling shouldn’t be just a summer activity; it can happen all year long. This steak marinade can make a less expensive cut of meat into a gourmet feast. No need to splurge on the most expensive beef with this flavorful steak marinade.

cook time




2 steaks whatever is on sale and looks good

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic minced

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or white vinegar

2 teaspoons yellow mustard

2 tablespoons soy sauce



Mix all ingredients together and place steaks into freezer bag with marinade overnight. This makes enough marinade for two large steaks. I opt for a little shorter cooking time and prefer my meat medium rare. If you are unsure, a meat thermometer is the best gauge for the perfect steak!
