Stacey's Stove ~ Savory Steak Marinade

Savory Steak Marinade

Hubby and I are both meat & potatoes lovers.  If asked what our last meal would be, this is it.  During a typical week, it isn’t often that we are able to have dinner together as a family.  Shawn is a Firefighter, so his schedule rotates.  Typically, he has about 3-4 shifts a week where he isn’t home for dinner.  When his 1st day off falls on a Friday, it’s steak & steamers for dinner.  It is sort of an unspoken vow…no words exchanged…no “what’s for dinner honey?”…if it’s Friday, it’s steak & steamer night!  For those of you who are not from New England, steamers are soft shell clams that are steamed (we steam them in beer and old bay seasoning) and served with butter (or as us Rhode Islanders would call it – “bud-dah”).


Hubby was in charge of marinating the steaks and he did a great job,
however one can only eat the same marinade of soy sauce and garlic for so long.
Tired of the same ole, same ole, I researched and researched (and researched),
until the “savory steak marinade” was born.
It is so good (yes, it’s that good!) that my daughter will no longer
order steak from a restaurant because it is “blah” in her words.

Any cut of steak will do…we usually stick to porterhouse, rib-eye, or NY strip.

Here’s what you need for the marinade!

A mixing bowl, measuring cup, whisk, and measuring spoons…
(Okay, let’s be honest, sometimes I just throw all of the ingredients
into a Ziploc bag and voila, but that wouldn't be pretty now, would it?)

Add all of the dry ingredients…

Add the minced garlic…

Pour all of the wet ingredients into the bowl and mix well…

Place the steaks into a fancy marinade container
(ahem…Ziploc bag)
and pierce each steak 2-3 times with a knife…

Pour the marinade over the steaks, cover and refrigerate. 
Yes, I know…right now you are questioning this recipe…the voice in your head
(it’s okay, I have one too…okay more than one)
is saying “I’ve NEVER seen a green marinade for steak?”
Don’t listen to the voice…walk away from the voice.
