Ready in 10 minutes

Here is a simple steak marinade that I created. Nothing too special about it, but it does make a tasty steak.

"I only used half of the soy sauce to make the flavor... flatter, more subtle, and man, it was delicous!"

Are you making this? 
1 cup worcestershire sauce
1 cup Soy sauce
1 cup red wine
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
0.5 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
0.25 cup olive oil

Original recipe makes 4



In a medium sized bowl, combine the worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and red wine. Crush the garlic and add to the mixture. Add the freshly ground pepper to the mixture. If you want to add a little kick to it, add a little bit of Tabasco sauce.

Place the steaks into this mixture, and marinade for at least 15 minutes. The longer you marinade the steaks, the more flavor they will inherit from the sauce.

Just before removing the steak for the BBQ, add the olive oil and mix. The olive oil will act as a sealant on the steaks, keeping the flavor in while it is being cooked.

As you are cooking your steaks on the BBQ, spoon the rest of the sauce onto the steaks, keeping the steaks moist while cooking.

Continue to use the sauce as you cook the steaks to the desired doneness, ideally using all the sauce.

I really liked this marinade. I'm not much of a steak-eater usually but I ate the whole steak tonight.

Low sodium soy is a good sub. Juices are red even when cooked well. Great marinade!
