Secret Steak Marinade

When it comes to Super Bowl....

Secret Steak Marinade

It's not so much about the game at our house, it's all about the meat and the party.  We follow college football, you remember the Boise State Broncos, yeah we love 'em and Saturdays are our day of viewing all Fall long.  We do have a family get-together, just a fun tradition and my guy pulls out all the stops when it comes to choice rib-eyes.   He likes to put on his own show at his grill!  

So it's tough to make raw meat look appetizing.  Actually you are looking at the pretty picture here.  If you are at all squeamish look away, but you will miss one of my best recipes ever...really!

Years ago I came across this.  For the life of me I can't remember where!  Appropriately named,
Secret Steak Marinade has been my secret until now!  No one can figure out what's in this, and it's not hard.  It gives any cut of steak or chop a marvelous flavor.  Give it a whirl.  I think you'll be pleased.

Secret Steak Marinade

The main players, soy sauce, onions, garlic, beef stock and seasoning....that's it!

Secret Steak Marinade

Peel and quarter the onions and toss it all in the blender.  Blend it thoroughly....

Pour it over your meat in a zip bag.  Allow it to stand at room temperature for up to 2 hours, or in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.  Be sure to flip the bag over several times.

Grill to your liking, generally 5 to 10 minutes per side over a hot grill.

We served steaks and chicken with a favorite veggie, (the kids request), a fresh green salad and you got it, a perfect Idaho baker!  Believe me when I say dinner was a hit and this time Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, got the love!!!!  Now if we could just find the silverware....back to unpacking tomorrow!

Secret Steak Marinade
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup beef stock
  • 2 tsp. Bon Appetit Seasoning
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process 1 minute on high.  Use 1/4 cup of marinade per steak or chop.  Allow to stand at room temperature for 2 hours or in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.  Then bring the meat to room temperature before grilling.  Grill to your liking, generally 5 to 10 minutes per side.
 

 Thanks for stopping by!
