Best Marinade in Existence
Post Updated February 2021

This is absolutely the best steak Marinade in Existence. No store-bought ( or any of my current homemade marinades ) come even close to this homemade marinade.

I forgot about posting this even though I promised I will do so many weeks ago. This is now definitely our number 1 marinade for especially steak, but also see the list below !

Well, here we are and I hope you will add this to your homemade marinade recipes collection as well – so worth it !

Best steak marinade ever !

Besides being the best marinade for all types of beef steaks, the marinade is also awesome with the following:

  • Pork
  • Poultry
  • Lamb
  • Seafood (not longer than 30 minutes though, as seafood is already very tender)
  • Vegetables (again not too long, only long enough to absorb some flavor)
  • Roasts

You have to try this Marinade ! It really is the Best Marinade in Existence !

Anyhow, this is the way I like my steak done – medium, but well done on the edges (try explain that to your waiter in a restaurant..).

I never bother to make large batches, as this Marinade takes only minutes to make, and it contains all standard, everyday pantry ingredients.

This way I can also make a single batch, double or even more, depending on how much meat we want to cook on a specific day.

I always have to share the recipe with all our family and friends when we have them over for a barbecue or dinner ! Many people refer to this recipe as the best steak marinade for bbq, but it is so much more.

Using this Marinade turns out the meat (whether cooked on the barbecue, oven or pan-fry), tender and juicy, each and every time.

Cooked to perfection and ready to be served

Over time we have used the Marinade not only with most red meats, but it is also very good with chicken and pork.

My daughter also marinated a pork roast (for a special dinner) and they loved it !

She did however, marinated the roast over night as she had a busy day ahead.

Every now and then she turned over the marinade container. And then she cooked the roast, using her rotisserie gadget in her oven. Below the roast she had a dish with plain, lightly salted potatoes into which the juices from the roast dripped.

Hearing about how fantastic her pork roast turned out, I just had to try it, also with the potatoes in a separate dish below the roast. Absolutely amazing !

Do I still cook my steaks as normal with a good amount of butter in my cast iron? Stumbled on a Pinterest pin.

Julianne, after marinating, I still cook the meat (various methods) the same as before. I have however never cooked steak in butter before, but we normally do steaks over the coals (straight after marinating) or we use our George Foreman, the side which presses (sprayed lightly with cooking oil)

Do you think this would work for bison? Very lean and dries out easily.

Hi there, I had to look up what bison is as I have never had this type of meat before and stumbled upon an article from Northfork. I do think this marinade would be just fine to use, but you can also read Northfork's article >>> HERE

Hi Terri, to be honest I have never had deer meat (any type). If you do try the marinade on deer steaks, would you be kind enough as to let me know how it turns out as I am sure other readers might also be interested ?
