How to Marinate Steak

Created January 10, 2017
Looking for a way to add more wow to your next steak dinner? Learning to marinate steak ahead of time is a quick and easy way to add tons of flavor in a short amount of time.

Letting steaks marinate in highly seasoned liquid makes for moist, flavorful meat, whether you’re using our Ginger Garlic Marinade, Orange Thyme Marinade or your own delicious concoction. No matter the marinade, just follow our three simple steps and you’ll be serving up mouth-watering, juicy steaks in no time.

What you’ll need: 

  • Steak
  • Shallow glass dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag
  • Basting brush
  • 1-quart saucepan 
How to: 

1. Mix all ingredients for marinade in shallow glass dish or plastic bag.


2. Add steak, turning to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate. Turn meat occasionally. Refrigerate steak in marinade for at least 1 hour, but no longer than 24 hours.


3. Remove meat from marinade; set marinade aside. Cook steak as desired, brushing occasionally with marinade.


Expert tip: 

Remaining marinade must be boiled to be served as a sauce. (If not boiled, discard for food safety reasons.) To heat, in a 1-quart saucepan, bring marinade to boiling, stirring constantly; boil and stir 1 minute.
