Easy Steak Marinade with Chili Sauce

As much as I love going to eat at a good steakhouse, I definitely prefer to eat steaks cooked at home on our grill. There is just something about being able to season and grill the steaks on our charcoal grill that really puts them over the top!

Since we love to grill steaks at home, I am always on the hunt for new and flavorful marinades. We have been using this Master Steak Marinade for the past few weeks and we LOVE it! It is seriously delicious.

The best part is that this marinade uses simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Give this a try the next time you want a steak dinner. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

How to Make Master Steak Marinade

This marinade is super simple to make. Simply whisk together red wine vinegar, chili sauce, vegetable oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, salt, pepper, and garlic. Pour the marinade over the steaks and let them marinate for at least 30 minutes to 8 hours. Remove the steaks from the marinade and cook until they reach your desired temperature.

  • I used Heinz Chili Sauce. It is near the ketchup at the grocery store.
  • You can whisk up the marinade and refrigerate it until you are ready to cook the steaks. It will keep for several weeks refrigerated in an air-tight container.
  • I like to let the steaks marinate all day in the refrigerator. I put the steaks in a gallon ziplock bag and pour the marinade over them and pop them in the fridge before breakfast.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steak for doneness.
    • Rare Steak 120–130°F (Cool to warm red center, soft and tender texture)
    • Medium Rare Steak 130–135°F (Warm red center, perfect steak texture)
    • Medium Steak 135–145°F (hot pink center, slightly firmer texture)
    • Medium Well Steak 145–155°F (Mostly brown center, firm texture)
    • Well Done Steak 155°F and up (No color, very firm and drier)

What to Serve with Steak

This marinade would be perfect when you fire up the grill for Labor Day or tailgating this fall! Give it a try! I promise you will love it! We usually serve the steaks with a salad and a potato casserole. We also love this with some green beans and mushrooms.

Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these yummy steaks:

  1. Have you ever frozen your marinade? Some day I'd love to do a marinade exchange with friends. If 5 people were participating I'd make 5 batches and have them in Ziploc bags to swap out with their recipes. Then each person can decide if they just freeze the bags or add the meat of their choice and then freeze so it all marinates as it thaws. Do you think that would work with this recipe?

  2. This looks like it can be a life long commitment recipe! Yum! Love a good marinade to have in my arsenal! Question – chili sauces can vary —- which one do you use? Heinz? Asian? This can work for London Broil too!

    1. I use 1 tbl of Heinz Chili Sauce and 1 tbl of Asian Sweet Chili Sauce in my version of this recipe. Best of both worlds. And make that a heaping tea of mustard powder.
