You probably have everything you need in your kitchen right now to make this perfectly easy Steak Marinade!
Last week I bought a big package of kind of cheap steaks. I’m not talking about on-sale cheap. I’m talking about not that great cuts of meat. I knew they might not be the most tender steaks we had ever eaten, but they would certainly better than no steak. Since I expected them to be a bit lacking in flavor and texture on their own, I wanted help them along with a good marinade for steak.
I remembered pinning this Best Steak Marinade in Existence recently, so I looked up that recipe. I didn’t have all the ingredients called for, so I modified it a tad to come up with the recipe I’m going to share with you here. Now, I am a pretty literal person. I couldn’t call this “THE Best Steak Marinade in the Galaxy” because I really haven’t tried them all.
There are about an infinite number of ways to marinate meat, and who am I to say that mine is the best? I also think you can hardly go wrong if you mix up a concoction of soy sauce and spices and pour it over steak. It’s steak we’re talking about here! It’s pretty hard to mess it up. So, I would call this “A Pretty Good Marinade for Steak” or “A Perfectly Fine Meat Marinade.” Soak your steak, chicken, or pork chops in this, and you won’t be sorry.
