Sometimes having an incredibly simple go-to recipe can really save you when you’re in the middle of the week and you’re out of inspiration. It’s also great for when you’re having guests over for dinner and you need something that tastes good that’s not going to require a ton of effort.

At Mighty Flame Propane Cylinder Exchange, we have you covered! That’s why in today’s blog, we’re going to share an incredibly easy steak marinade that you can knock out with items you already have in your pantry. Bonus: it’s great with chicken as well, covering all of your bases!

Our Go-To Marinade Recipe

Like most marinades, the longer you can let your steak sit in this one, the better off you’ll be. We recommend giving it at least a couple of hours if you can and as many as 24 hours. Our suggestion is to make the marinade before you head to bed at night and give it until you get home from work the next day to do its marinating.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ½ cup soy sauce (or liquid aminos if that’s your preference)
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ cup worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (or parsley or basil if you prefer)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

And That’s All There Is To It

From there, simply throw your steak into a ziploc bag with your marinade and let it do its work. Once again, the more time you can give it, the better the results will be.

But what kind of steak should you use with this marinade? Great question. Of course it’s subjective and you can do whatever you like, but we’ve had the most luck with sirloin steaks made this way. We’ve also cut flatiron steaks into 2 inch cubes and had similarly incredible results. If you go the latter route, this is an ideal way to prepare a kabob. Add some potatoes and onions and you’re good to go. It’s a whole meal on a stick!

This is a good marinade to use with chicken as well. You can tweak things to your liking by adding a little more of one ingredient, cutting others out, or adding ones we haven’t mentioned. At the end of the day, this is just a good guideline to use, but let your tastebuds tell you what works best for you and make your changes accordingly. You know best, after all!
