I’ve used this marinade so many times over the years. It really is one of the best! Everyone who eats it asks me for the recipe. Here’s how to do it:
Combine all these ingredients into a large ziplock, container or whatever you like to marinate in. Try to marinate your steak for as close to 24 hours as possible. It really makes a big difference in flavor. Cook the steak however you prefer- grill, cast iron, or whatever method is your favorite. Make sure to cook it to your own personal desired level of doneness (not sure if that’s a real word but let go with it anyway).
💥2 tbs brown sugar 💥 1/4 cup soy sauce 💥1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce 💥2 tbs balsamic vinegar 💥2 tbs lemon juice💥1 tsp garlic powder💥3 fresh garlic cloves 💥crushed 💥2 tbs olive oil 💥 1 tsp salt 💥2 tsp black pepper
🥩 Once you have combined all of the ingredients together add your steak. You can choose whatever cut you want but I’d highly recommend skirt or flank steak. Skirt being my number one. That’s because it hold a marinade like no other and it’s super quick to cook. Just a few minutes on each side and you’re done.
🥩 One big tip when you’re cooking a steak in a marinade that people often skip is drying the steak. Make sure when you remove the steak from the marinade you dry it with a dish towel. This will create a nice crust but not burn any extra unnecessary marinade. I say unnecessary because all that flavor has already penetrated the meat so it’s good to go.
🥩 Also, don’t forget to take your steak out of the fridge for a little before you cook it. You don’t want to take a super cold steak and place it on a hot surface. Taking the meat out a little before (getting it close to room temperature. I usually do about 30 min) will ensure an even cooking temp. You’ll be going with the steak instead of working against it.
🥩Let your steak rest under a tin foil tent for 5 min before slicing. All those awesome flavors will setting into the steak. And If you are using skirt steak, don’t forget to slice it on an angle. It can really help against this cut tasting too tough or chewy.
I hope you guys like this one. It’s one of my favorite marinades ever!
