Steak Marinade

Yields4 Servings
Prep Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr

  cup olive oil
  cup soy sauce
  cup lemon juice
 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
 2 tsp garlic powder
 ½ tsp onion powder
 1 tbsp dried basil
 1 tsp black pepper
 few dashes of your favourite hot sauce, optional

1

Combine all of the marinade ingredients together. Place in a large Ziplock bag, add your steaks of choice, squeeze out as much air as possible, seal the bag and allow to marinade, refrigerated, for 2-10 hours. Turn the bag with steaks over once in a while and massage the steaks if desired.

This could also be done in a container, but airtight Ziplock bag will infuse the steaks with the marinade better.

2

Preheat the grill. While the grill is preheating, dry your steaks with paper towels - this will help to get a nice sear on the steaks; if not dried - you will end up steaming the surface. Discard the marinade and the Ziplock bag. Grill your steaks and enjoy.

Notes:
3

Switch it up! How about balsamic vinegar instead of lemon juice? Minced garlic and finely diced onions will be a nice variation (feel free to decrease garlic/onion powder, if using fresh.) I've also added 1/4 cup Ginger Ale. Add other things like fresh ginger. A tablespoon or so of brown sugar (careful, extra sugar may cause more browning/more flare ups.) Some Dijon... Limitless possibilities!
