Gluten Free Steak Marinade
This AWESOME steak marinade is one of our all time highest pinned/viewed posts. The recipe was inspired on my trip to Buenos Aires….and if you know how much they know about steak……..then you understand this recipe HAS to be good!
We love grilling season! If you are looking for a fantastic, no-fail steak marinade, this one is for you.
Typically when preparing steaks in the past I have used dry rubs… but this marinade makes the steaks so juicy and flavorful! It’s hard to beat the classic combination of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce when it comes to steak marinades. When you combine that with a splash of lemon juice (my secret ingredient), garlic powder, and several other dried herbs you will discover the best-ever marinade for all your favorite cuts of beef. It is so important to take a little time to give your meat some extra marinade love…..you won’t be sorry – it makes a huge difference.
This time around we cut the meat into kabob size chunks and cooked them to perfection! (Which isn’t hard when you have a marinade like this.)
A quick tip for marinades: Make the most of sealable plastic bags and use them to marinade your meat to minimize cleanup and provide easy opportunities to swish the ingredients around the food item so it gets an even coating on all sides.
Tip #2: Poke your meat with a fork before marinading to maximize the amount of flavor that penetrates into the meat.
Serve it with your favorite summer sides and enjoy …Bon Appetite our Friends and enjoy the season of grilling!
Gluten Free Steak Marinade
1-2 lbs of any cut of steak
1/3 cup coconut aminos (or soy sauce if not gluten free)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons dried basil
1 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
Poke meat with a fork and place into a ziplock bag and add all ingredients to the bag
Mix the meat and marinade together making sure that the marinade is evenly distributed
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and up to 24 hours
This does sound delicious! I never quite understood the difference between white and black pepper but I do love the soy sauce and worcestershire combination too.
To me, I think white ground black pepper has a little more flavor, but you could definitely use black ground pepper instead! 🙂
Just found your site from a link party and this marinade looks delicious! I think I will try it the next time we have steak.
So glad you’ve found us… This is one of my family’s favorite recipes! Hope you like it! 🙂
I’m not sure who posted that recipe, but I found this in my grandma’s recipe box many years ago and my dad has been making it every summer since.
I thought you said, “..The recipe was inspired on my trip to Buenos Aires..”
Yes! We’ve made it many times, but my tripped to buenos aires fired up my love for steak again. 🙂
what steaks did you use for this? i want to use this recipe at my wedding!
We always use Flank steak….but it would work with any steak cut 🙂
I am only going to have about 9 hours to marinate my steaks.. will this be enough time for this recipe?
No problem! Only a minimum of 1 hour is needed for the marinating time!
I find that when you slice the flank steak (especially a big one like from Costco/BJs) and marinate the sliced meat, it takes on the flavor much faster than it would as an entire steak. 9 hours should be enough time.
Thanks for the feedback nikki!
Thank you so much! I have been a vegetarian for 20 years and literally just started to transition back to meat – so I have no clue how to cook the stuff at all. I needed a quick recipe for five children, I did the marinade for one hour, and it was a huge success. Even our 16-year-old complimented it, and she doesn’t compliment much these days 😉 I absolutely plan on using this recipe again, forever more.
Yay! So happy to hear! Thanks for sharing 🙂
I’m trying it now…for peppersteak…so far the combination of the marinade is tasty just waiting for the hubby to come back with the lemon to add …gonna marinate for 4hrs..thank you so much!!! 😉
Yay!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Got some T-Bone steaks and tried this receipe.Marinated them for 24hrs..Put them on the grill..Very tender,juicy,and tasty.Could still taste the flavor in my mouth after a few minutes of eating
Sounds delicious. I don’t see where it says how much steak to use in proportion to the other ingredients. I live alone and would have to cut the ingredients down, but not sure by how much. I don’t want to be wasteful.
It marinates 1-2 pounds of steak… use all of the marinating ingredients either way!
We tried this last week, and we’re already having it again, so good!!
I am unable to find a worcestershire sauce without high fructose corn syrup. Is there a healthier alternative? I can replace the high sodium, chemical-rich, soy sauce with coconut aminos, but I’d love to find a healthy alternative for the Worchestershire. I appreciate any help.
don’t poke the steaks with a fork beforehand. youre gonna lose flavor in the searing process as well as the initial cooking process if you go reverse sear
Great marinade, used marinaded beef for a retro fondue. Delicious.
But an IMPORTANT NOTE: don’t assume that resealable ziplock bags make the clean up easier. They just shift the clean up from your kitchen to the environment where our children will have clean-up our mess in the future. This is not the 1900’s – Much better (and cheaper) to use a bowl or reusable container.
