I’m a midwestern girl and my hubby is from Texas, so we both enjoy our steak and potatoes. For holidays like Easter, we always look forward to breaking out the grill or smoker and putting together an awesome steak or in this year’s case, a brisket. We bought a 4 lb brisket last weekend that we’ve been DYING to eat this week and I got to marinading it today and realized I’ve never shared THE BEST STEAK MARINADE RECIPE with you.
I mean…seriously guys. It’s awesome. It makes my mouth water while I’m mixing it and it’s probably all stuff you already have in your house! My dad has been marinading steaks this way since I was young and you HAVE to try this out.
There’s the ingredients…
A1 Steak Sauce
Here’s the big thing…I don’t “measure” my ingredients. I can’t tell you the EXACT amounts of everything to put in. I will tell you this:
- I use probably 1/2 cup-1 cup of steak sauce depending on how much marinade I need for the size of my steak
- I put in about equal portions of Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce (maybe 1/8-1/4 cup)
- I use 1/2 cup to 1 cup of Italian dressing
- I use around 1 tablespoon mustard
- I used around 1 tablespoon of lemon jiuce
The mixture will taste good no matter what, you can taste as you go and adjust. The biggest ingredients are the steak sauce and italian dressing. The next two in line of most used would be the soy and Worcestershire sauce. And the least used is the lemon juice and mustard. If you follow that overall idea you’ll be in good shape. We make enough to cover our steaks and if you can, let marinate over night. If not, a few hours will do the trick, as well (but overnight will KILL it!).
Once everything is all in there, I whisk it up and pour it on my meat. Usually I’ll use a knife and stab some slits in the meat a few times to help soak up the marinade more.
Here’s my brisket…already marinating for Easter Sunday smoking. I cannot WAIT to get started cooking it!
This is really great paired with Cheesy Potatoes too!!
