Hi Everyone! While most of the country is enjoying crisp autumn nights with the chill of winter around the corner, we have been blessed with some amazing weather as well…not quite what you would call “autumn temperatures, ” but lovely, nonetheless. Saturday night was a beautiful, warm evening with a bit of humidity in the air. Here in northern CA, a bit of humidity means it feels warmer…a special treat if it happens around dinner time because eating dinner outdoors becomes a no-brainer. That is exactly what we did. We had some friends over and ate dinner outdoors (without using the heater!). Hard to believe the end of October brought us such a treat! Fantastic!
I made steaks and marinated them in this marinade for about 8 hours. They were perfect and my hub, the master bbq’er, nailed the grilling!
(sorry no picture today…trust me, it’s yummy)
Shelly’s Steak Marinade
Combine the following:
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. Dijon mustard
2 Tbs. Worcestershire Sauce
1 1/2 Tbs. garlic powder (not salt)
3 Tbs. dried basil
1 1/2 Tbs. dried parsley
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp chopped rosemary
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp hot sauce of your choice
Add marinade to marinating pan. I use a Tupperware marinating container, but you can use a 13 x 9 inch pan as well. Coat steaks with the marinade and let sit in frig, covered, for 6-12 hours before grilling.
What did I love about this marinade? I loved the taste of this marinade…balsamic and Dijon mustard are a few of my favorite products to cook with. They rarely lead you wrong…
What didn’t I love about this marinade? Nothing. It came together easily, had simple ingredients, and it tasted fantastic!
