Classic Steak Marinade

Submitted by: admin on April 2, 2020

Makes About 1 Cup, Enough To Marinate 4 To 6 Individual Steaks Or One 2-Pound Steak


1⁄2 cup soy sauce
1⁄3 cup vegetable oil
1⁄4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons minced chives
4 garlic cloves, minced
1-1⁄2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar


  1. Combine soy sauce, oil, Worcestershire, sugar, chives, garlic, and pepper in bowl. Transfer 1⁄4 cup marinade to bowl and stir in vinegar; set aside.
  2. Place remaining marinade and steaks in 1-gallon zipper-lock bag; press out as much air as possible and seal bag. Refrigerate for 1 hour, flipping bag after 30 minutes to ensure that steaks marinate evenly.
  3. Remove steaks from marinade, letting any excess marinade drip back into bag. Discard bag and marinade. Grill steaks as desired.
  4. Transfer steaks to shallow pan and pour reserved marinade over top. Tent loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes, turning meat halfway through resting. Slice steaks or serve whole, passing reserved marinade if desired.
