Our Favorite Steak Marinade
Our favorite steak marinade is pretty simple, but we love it. I don't have exact measurements because I just "eyeball it" when I toss it together.
I start by dropping the steaks in a plastic bag. I like to use the cheapo bags (like the kind in the fruit/veg section of the grocery store) so that I can throw them away after use without feeling guilty. :) If I use the more costly Ziploc kind, I feel compelled to wash and re-use!
I then add the following ingredients to the bag...
Red Wine Vinegar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Basically, I more or less use equal parts of the soy sauce, red wine vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil. For the salt, pepper, and crushed garlic, I use a bit of common sense depending on how much meat is in the bag.
I then mush it all around a bit in the bag and place the whole bag in a bowl or on a plate in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
The reason I use the plate/bowl is because sometimes those cheapo bags I mentioned do leak and I don't want to have to clean up a mess in the refrigerator later. :)
***On occasion, I do add a little crushed ginger to the bag also for an added zip.
I love a good marinade on steak, particularly if I can't afford the best cut and I feel it will need a little extra flavor and tenderness.
Hope our favorite marinade will help you come up with your own version to enjoy.
