Here’s what you’ll need to make The Best Steak Marinade (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Soy sauce – to reduce the salt you can use a reduced sodium soy sauce.
  • Lemon juice – use fresh squeezed or lemon juice from a bottle.
  • Olive oil – we used an organic extra virgin olive oil, but any olive oil you like will work well.
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Garlic – use fresh garlic for the best results.
  • Italian seasoning blend
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • Red pepper
  • Steaks – rib eye or New York strip are great choices.
