Marinade for Steaks


Grilled steaks and risotto - that's a perfect combination in our house.

We usually grill filet mignon, but Jon picked up some NY Strip Steaks instead. The steaks seemed a little tough, so he created a marinade for them.

The steaks marinated in this mixture for about 6 hours.

  • 2 oz olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1.5 oz scotch (he used Johnny Walker Red)

One hour before grilling, he added 3 dashes Worcestershire.

This marinade was delicious, and sweeter than we both expected (in a good way!). Also, the steaks became much more tender than they would have been if we didn't marinate them.

I served the steaks with barley risotto and sauteed spinach.

A good marinade makes all the difference and this one looks really yummy! My hubby is cooking beef kabobs right now that he marinaded.
