Salty Steak Marinade. It’s So Yummy.

plated2

Let’s talk about steak. But, first, get out your tissues. I have a sad story to share with you all.

Once upon a time there was a girl and she loved steak. She was a pretty good cook, but her steak was never anything great. It was just boring old steak. She was in a steak rut, if you will. A little olive oil, some salt and pepper, and if she was feeling adventurous, maybe some seasoned salt or garlic powder. The girl’s steak was decent, but steak isn’t supposed to decent. It’s supposed to be delicious.

See. It’s a sad story. But, wait! Here comes the happy part.

One day the girl was crying and carrying on about her lack of steak cooking capabilities when the girl’s mother said “Lo, I will fix your substandard steaks but good.” And the girl said “Mom? I’m not sure that sentence made sense.” And the mother said, “Listen to me, for I know of what I speak.”

The end.

Actually, that was just THE BEGINNING. The beginning of great steak.

I’m going to stop telling stories and just tell you how to make some super flavorful steak now, okay? And, hey, I heard your big sigh of relief. That was rude.

The first thing we are going to do is plan ahead. I’m not usually good at planning ahead, but it’s worth it in this case. We’re going to marinate the steaks for at least 2 hours, preferably more, so get this started well before dinner time.

The marinade consists of salt, pepper, garlic salt, water, oil and vinegar. I got a little crazy this time and threw in some of Daregal’s Grilling Herbs and woo boy, it really kicked this marinade up. Don’t worry if you don’t have Grilling Herbs, you can just use dried or fresh rosemary, thyme and parsley. (I do recommend Daragel’s Fresh Frozen Herbs, though!)

marinade1

In a small bowl, mix together 1 1/2 tablespoons of salt, 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper, 1 teaspoon garlic salt, 1/4 cup warm water (warm, because it helps dissolve the salt), 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil, and 2 tablespoons of white vinegar.

Whisk it together. Lick the fork if you want. I won’t judge.

adding-herbs

Normally I don’t add any seasonings other than the salt, pepper and garlic salt, and the steaks turn out delicious. The flavor really goes all through the meat.

This time I decided to get a little crazy. I added about one tablespoon of Daregal’s Grilling Herbs. If you don’t have this, you can leave it out altogether or you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme and 1 teaspoon dried parsley.

in-bag

Now add your steaks (any kind, 1 to 2 pounds)  to a big ziploc bag and dump the marinade in. Pop it all in the fridge for at least 2 hours. If you think about it, turn the bag over a couple times so that every part of the steak gets a chance to soak in the flavors.

When you’re ready, cook your steaks as you normally would.

Yum.

    I really appreciate what you write here, very refreshing and smart. One issue though, I’m running Firefox on Fedora and some of your site structure are a little misaligned. I realize it’s not a popular setup, but it is still something to keep an eye on. Just giving you a heads up.

    @dainty39gm,

    Hi there! I’ve never tried poking holes in a steak before and am not sure how well that would turn out. Would the juices run out? Not sure.

    Anyway, my favorite thing about this marinade is that it really does seem to flavor the meat really well. No holes needed. :)

    I think I used too much salt.. When I tasted it, it was salty.. Later I found out I was tricked and used sea salt instead of regular table salt but I only used 1 tablespoon.. Should I rinse them off before cooking? Or should I be fine? We pull jokes in my house but I hate to waste a 30$ steak!

    Along with diamonds, gold is exchanged during marriage ceremonies
    in most parts of the world. To create probably the most
    out of one’s investment you have to be prepared to do your homework.
    Rather of just selling the gold you will get much more cash
    from the sale and worth from the coin itself.

    Hostels are a fantastic and often overlooked potential choice for people traveling on more limited budgets –
    and they usually provide a more authentic, local experience than big hotels.
    Hostels have probably been around for over a thousand years as a low
    cost place for a traveller to stay for the night. The booking procedure is quick and once a hotel room is
    booked, you will get the confirmation email immediately.

    Small and not too heavy, this tool includes more or less everything you will need when on a camping, hiking or fishing trip.
    For serious collectors, these high quality knives are well worth the price.
    Chopping, slicing, dicing, and peeling, can be so much easier with a set of great quality, forged steel knives that have handles that enable a firm, sturdy grip.

    Such games indirectly teach children about aspects of life on earth.
    And if this is the case, one will project these associations onto
    others and interpret their behaviour in such a way.
    you means having NO contact with your ex, unless
    you are meeting for the children or.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
