How to Cook the Best Steak of Your Life: 5 Minute {INCREDIBLE} Steak Marinade


We are blessed to have a freezer full of cow that we use weekly for burgers, roasts, etc.  We are also spoiled with a handful of sirloins, ribeyes, porterhouse, and T-bones steaks as part of our stash that we get to feast on frequently.  I have to say that this marinade makes the most INCREDIBLE steak – Life Changing. 

The last time we had this for dinner, Brad and I just kept saying, “This is INCREDIBLE.” And it couldn’t be easier!  You just need a blender and a handful of ingredients you probably already have on hand!


5 Minute {INCREDIBLE} Steak Marinade


  • 1/2 c Olive Oil
  • 1/3 c Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 c Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 c Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 T of Minced Garlic {I use this one}
  • 2 T of Dried Parsley
  • 2 T of Dried Basil
  • 1 t of Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 2-3 dashes of Tabasco Sauce


1. Blend the ingredients in a blender for 30-45 seconds until well blended.

2. Pour the marinade over the steak and allow to marinade {magical things happen} for 6-8 hours in the refrigerator. 

3. Cook the steak over a cast iron skillet or grill to your liking.

  1. Oh Jen. Will you think less of me if I stick with my bottle of cheap-o Italian dressing? We can still bond over a freezer full of cow, right? Even if I’m too lazy to dirty up my blender? 😉

    Side note: Would you like to make me a steak for dinner tonight? No? FINE.

    1. Mary, I know you are PG but it’s just a few pulses of the blender. You can do it. I believe in you.

  2. This sounds really yummy! What cut of beef to you use with it?

    1. Tonight I used Ribeye, but I think the sirloins were even better!

  4. Filing this away. Picking up my 1/4 cow over Thanksgiving….
    (until then – we clean out the freezer!)
