The {We Finally Have a Grill!} Perfect Steak Marinade

This is my favorite steak marinade that is easy to throw together and will give you delicious steaks whether you marinate them from two or twenty-four hours.  I always change things up slightly each time I make it based on what I have on hand but this is the basic outline. As I wrote in my last post, we had family over for dinner last night and we successfully used our grill for the first time.  Is anything better than food hot off the grill (and a clean kitchen to boot!)

What to buy (serves 6-8):

  • enough steak to feed your crowd (I made 6 smaller filet mignons and 3 flank steaks to feed 6 with some leftovers)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons ginger paste
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon coffee grounds

What to do:

  • whisk all of the ingredients except steaks until combined
  • pour marinade over steaks and marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator, discard marinade
  • grill steaks on medium high to your desired heat
