Marinated Steaks: What to Prepare Ahead

You likely already have many of the ingredients in your pantry: items like balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and onion powder are great to have on hand.

Plan on grabbing the rest of the ingredients a couple of days before you intend to grill your steaks, as it’s highly recommended that you give steaks 1-2 nights to marinate. Overnight is good; two nights is even better.

Tip: liquid smoke typically comes in small bottles and is usually found in most major grocery stores; it’s absolutely worth it. It provides an extra boost of smoky flavor to your meats, and a small bottle can go a long way. We add a bit of liquid smoke on this smoky BBQ pulled chicken  and tender BBQ baked ribs…it makes a world of difference.

see this Steak recipe in action:

Note that in creating this recipe, we used both ribeye and T-bone steaks. The recipe is fabulous with either cut, as long they steaks are good quality and fresh from your butcher/grocer.

Once you have your handful of ingredients, simply combine it all in an airtight container and let steaks soak up the marinade flavors in the fridge until grill time. If needed, turn steaks over halfway through marinading time so all sides are nicely flavored.

Bonus option: after removing steaks from marinade, feel free to transfer marinade sauce to a saucepan and bring to a boil, so you can use it as a sauce to drizzle over cooked steaks. This is a simple and delicious way to make use of all the flavorful marinade.

  • Prep Steaks: Towel dry the steaks and pierce meat throughout with fork. Set aside.
  • Marinade: In a bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients until well combined. Rub marinade into the fork-pierced steaks and place in a single layer (pie pan or baking dish works well.) Coat fully with marinade. Cover and chill 1-2 days in fridge.
  • Cook: Grease your grill and preheat to medium high heat. Grill steaks 3-5 minutes per side or until your preferred level of doneness (medium rare is suggested.) You may either discard marinade or boil it in a saucepan while steaks are cooking, as it can be used as a sauce to drizzle over the grilled steaks.
  • Rest and Serve: Let steaks rest up to 5 minutes before serving with your choice of chopped herbs for garnish.


*With 2 generously sized steaks, you can either serve 2 steak lovers, or you can feed 4 people by slicing cooked steaks thinly and serving on a platter (boneless ribeye works best if you prefer to serve it pre-sliced, as you won't need to contend with bones.)
Actual cook time depends on the thickness of your steaks and the temperature of the grill.
