At our house, we have a tight grocery budget, so we don’t eat steak very often. When we do, it is usually the cheaper cuts, and they need a little “love” to make them taste really good.
This is a marinade that I used on last night’s charcoal steak and they tasted fantastic. Actually, fantastic doesn’t do it justice. It was fantastic to the 3rd power. When I grilled my steaks last night, I also tossed a couple of small pieces of firewood on top of the briquettes, which really gave the meat a smoky flavor.
1½ to 2 lbs steak
the juice from a freshly squeezed lemon
½ tsp dried oregano
½ tsp salt
½ tsp dry mustard
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp minced garlic
Place steaks and all ingredients in a plastic gallon bag. Seal and shake and massage meat until all ingredients are mixed and cover the steaks equally. Place in fridge and marinate for several hours. Grill to your liking.
