Summer Grilling 2013:

Best Steak Marinade Recipe

Reblogged by Ralph Kratzer

BBQThere is no better summer grilling protein than a beef steak. No matter which cut you prefer — porterhouse, ribeye, tenderloin — we have a great recipe for a go-to marinade that is inexpensive, simple to prepare, and tastes great on steaks that have been seared over an open flame.

“The grill is just a source of heat. Just like a stove, it is very user-friendly” — Bobby Flay

RECIPE:

Remember that this is a marinade, and should be prepared well in advance of actual cooking of the meats. Recommended marinade time is 2-12 hours.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup of Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Bunch of Green Onions (Chopped)
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic (Crushed)
  • 1 Teaspoon Chilli Powder
  • 1 Whole Bay Leaf
  • Juice of 2 Limes
  • 1 Tablespoon of Seasoned Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon of Celery Seed
  • 1/4 Cup of V8 Vegetable Juice (Secret Ingredient)

PREPARATION:

The best part about this marinade recipe is that it is incredibly simple. All you have to do is mix all the ingredients together in a large gallon-sized freezer bag, add your raw steaks into the bag and let the meat soak up all of that good flavor.

Hint: Use a paper towel to pat the steaks dry of all of the marinade before placing them on the grill. This will ensure that you get a nice crust on the outside of the steak. Don’t worry, you won’t lose any flavour, the flavour will actually juice back out of the steak while it is on the grill.
