Marinate your steak!

Especially inexpensive cuts.  Inexpensive cuts of steak like flank or hangar steaks, are perfect for marinating.  Adding a marinade with a vinegar base will make the steak tender and delicious.  We barbecue quite a few of these because they’re just so versatile and the marinade flavour options are endless.  I’ve shared quite a few of my marinade recipes here in this post, so make sure to check them out for different ideas.

Honey Garlic + Ginger = Delicious

This flavour combination is one of my favourites for a steak marinade.  The meat is just SO flavourful.  In addition to the honey, garlic and ginger, this marinade is made with soy sauce and balsamic vinegar, so it almost tastes like teriyaki steak.  It’s so good.

Recipe Tips:

  • I like to marinate my steak in a disposable ziplock bag.  It’s easy, fuss and mess free.  Also, having the marinade and the meat in a bag makes it really easy to massage the sauce into the meat.
  • For best results, let the steak marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but overnight is best.
  • Make sure to massage the bags a couple of times during the marinating time, as this helps to ensure that the steak will be coated in the marinade as much as possible.
  • Right before you are ready to grill, give the steaks one last good massage in the marinade.
  • You can freeze your steaks in the marinade.  When you are ready to use them, just thaw the steaks in the fridge until they are completely unfrozen.
