Best Steak Marinade in Existence


When I saw this recipe on allrecipes.com I couldn't resist trying it.  I mean, with a name like "Best Steak Marinade in Existence" how could I not test it out?  I have to admit, this actually might be the best steak marinade I've ever had.  It is packed full of flavor and doesn't use any crazy ingredients.  I already had everything in the pantry to make it.  We used this marinade on skirt steak and it was delicious.  I plan on trying it on pork tenderloin and chicken (of course) very soon.

  4. I was afraid this recipe was going to have Italian dressing in it. Seems like most steak marinades do and I HATE Italian dressing on anything but a salad.

    Can't wait to try it!

  7. I just made this one last week too! Second time; the first time we made fajitas with it and added green chiles (canned) into the mix. It was great either way!

  9. Interesting. I don't have white pepper and I never have dried parsley, but I do have a few steaks thawing for supper tonight and everything else the recipe calls for. I may give this a try... Thanks for sharing.

  11. I had the same thought when I saw it and we've used it a couple of times and enjoyed it both times. I look forward to your thought regarding pork and chicken.

  13. I just made this last night on chicken. It was FAB! I couldn't believe I had all the ingredients on hand....except the white pepper. I can't find it at my grocery store.

  14. I've seen this same recipe and at the time dismissed it because steaks like ribeyes and strip steaks don't need a marinade. But using it was skirt steak like you did (or flank or flat iron) is a great idea.

  15. Tried it the other night -- it was delicious!!

  16. This was the first recipe I made when I started working at allrecipes for a family bbq and now barley no meat goes uncooked without this marinade!

  17. Silly question but where did you skirt steaks that big?!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sara, we got the skr steaks at The NY Butcher Shoppe in Birmingham. They have a great selection of meat. We also just bought some great looking skirt steak at Publix last night.

  20. Finding this marinade makes me happier than a bird with a french fry!

  21. this IS the best marinade! i make a few minor subs (montreal steak pepper mix for the white pepper, and reg minced garlic for the dried minced garlic, and no hot sauce).

    we love it, the company we've had over for it love it too (3 diff times now!).

  23. I normally don't eat steaks but when I tried one from a social event prepared by a catering company in Bristol, I have grown a liking to it and now, I can actually make one! Great recipe.

  24. You think I could use this marinade in the crock pot? Its getting too cold to grill here.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I made this and it's incredible! I doubled the marinade and used half of it to simmer with mushrooms to top the steaks with. So, so good!!

  26. Have you ever tried slow cooking steak with this marinade?

    1. It should work fine. I've never slow cooked a steak. We always grill or pan sear it.

  27. Used this last week with a few changes. I doubled the soy saunce and threw in a teaspoon each of oregano and rosemary.

    Utterly fantastic on a skirt steak grilled at 600 :)

  28. Can you marinade longer than 8 hours?

    ReplyDelete
  29. How long do you grill it? My husband says it really is not going to make it tender but I think it will.

  30. DO you think lime juice would work as well as lemon juice?
