I grocery shop with a budget each week so the best steak are not always an option. Actually the best cuts of steak are generally not an option so we are big fans of using fresh homemade marinades to make up for our more budget friendly meet choices, we use marinades to add flavor to meat as much as we use it to help tenderize our steak. This Asian Marinade is a great way to add ginger and soy flavor to less expensive cuts of beef as well as nice cuts that you may normally not marinate.
Asian Steak Marinade
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon minced white onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flake
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Make sure to use a bowl or container that has a lid. Place meat in bowl turning to coat. Let meat marinate for at least 2 hours turning periodically. Meat will have more flavor the longer it is left to marinate and letting sit over night results in great flavor.
