Who doesn’t love to throw a steak on the grill during the summer or into a cast iron pan at any time of the year? No one, vegans and vegetarians aside.
While a beef connoisseur will argue that a really good slab of meat doesn’t need any seasoning, I like to give mine a little pizzazz, a little excitement without taking over the flavor that makes it so beefy in the first place.
I have two go-to methods of achieving this culinary heaven. The first is marinating my meat in that plain, old Italian dressing. A great choice.
But…the second option is marinating with my BEST easy steak marinade.
Get ready for it…

Rich and flavorful blends of caramel and vegetable seasoning create a deep brown, crusty exterior while leaving the interior nice and tender.
I mean seriously, look at this lovely piece of meat!!!
Tell me that didn’t make your mouth water just looking at it!
My favorite way to prepare steak using this marinade and then lighting up the grill. It is a little sweet with caramelized molasses notes and a bit of smoke and char offset that nicely. It almost intensifies the beefiness.
Everyone always raves about it and asks me for my secret, expecting it to be something difficult and time-consuming. When they realize how easy it is, they’re always impressed.
The whole dish can be ready in as little as half an hour, for the nights when you’re running short on time.
However, I’ve also left the steak marinade on for up to 24 hours and usually like to throw the steaks in the marinade in the morning or early afternoon so I don’t have to think about it later.
That way, when it is time to grill, everything is ready to go.
