How to prepare marinade
This steak marinade recipe is so simple! All you literally have to do is mix together all the ingredients and add the mixture and steak into a Ziploc bag.

Should I marinate steak?
Absolutely! While steak has wonderful flavor in itself, a steak marinade will take it to a whole other level. Marinating your steak allows for your taste buds to have an enhanced experience with every single bite.
Can you marinade steak too long?
The longer that you continue to marinate your steaks, the strong the flavor is going to be. If you’re using a marinate that is salty, it is possible that you can marinate your steak too long. A good rule of thumb is not marinating for longer than 24 hours in length.
Do different cuts of steak required different marinade recipes?
Not at all. Once you decide on a steak marinade that you love, use it for all the varying cuts of meat! If you love it, be happy that you found one that’s versatile to use.
Should you rinse off any excess marinade from your steak?
No, if there happen to be any marinade on your steak that seems in excess, leave it on there during cooking. There’s a cook chance that once you start flipping it on the grill it will either cook into the steak or fall off if it’s too much. Always discard any remaining marinade you have left over.
What are you waiting for? Grab some steaks and toss them in the marinade.
Then invite your friends over and toss the steaks on the grill.
No one is going to say no to that invitation for dinner!
