World’s Best Steak Marinade

My hubby and I have been doing the keto diet together and love it!  We have a fun trip coming up together and it is time to get rid of this baby weight for once and for all.  I have loved this diet because it is more a part of our lifestyle.  We are able to eat the meals that we still love, just have higher fat and lower carbs.  Well, the keto diet includes a lot of steaks.  And today I am sharing with you the BEST steak marinade!

What do you use to marinate a steak?

This steak marinade is packed with dried herbs, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic.  These ingredients all come together to give you such amazing flavor and the perfectly cooked juicy steak!

How do you make a steak tender?

There are two ways that I use to make a steak tender.  Acidic tenderizers are a great way to get a tender steak.  I include lemon juice in my marinade to help to soften the steak.  I also break down the fibers by pounding the meat before I cook it.

Why is my steak tough and chewy?

The muscle fibers in meat have to be broken down and the proteins turned into gelatin in order to make meat tender. This happens very quickly over high heat with tender cuts of steak like filet mignon, but tougher cuts of meat require slow cooking, usually in some sort of liquid to keep them from drying out.

How long do you marinate steak?

As soon as your marinade is ready to go you add your steaks and let them soak up all of that delicious flavor.  It also tenderizes as it marinates.  The minimum to let these steaks marinate is 2 hours, but can also be marinated overnight.  The flavor is seriously out of this world!

I love to cook my steaks in a skillet.  It only takes minutes to get that crispy brown edge and medium cooked inside.  But you can also use this recipe to grill.  It is perfect for both.  It is going to give your steaks the very best flavor!

I know that you will agree that this is the world’s best steak marinade with the very first bite!

Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • pinch of red pepper
  • 1½ pound steaks, I used rib eye, New York is also great
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • fresh chopped parsley
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, pepper, salt, and a pinch of red pepper. Add steaks to a resealable zip lock bag or large bowl and pour the marinade on top. Marinate for 2 hours or overnight.
  2. To make the steaks in a skillet:
  3. Turn the skillet to high heat. Add the steaks. Cook on each side for 3 minutes or until outside is browned. Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook the steaks to the desired doneness. Mine took about 10 minutes flipping 3 times to get a medium well.
  4. Top with butter and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

  1. Just wanting to verify, is this recipe for 1 steak or multiple (if so how many)? Cooking tonight so hopefully I will get a response within a couple hours.
    Thank you♥

  2. Very nice. Thanks. I do have some, well, opinions on this keto diet thing which are not favorable (nor do I think, like virtually all fad diets, it is very healthy) but who cares the important thing is the recipe and the food

  3. I have used this twice. The second time i actually cooked stew meat in the marinade in the slow cooker. Was fabulous!

  4. Hi Alyssa, what herbs mixture do you use to marinade your steak with? I see the herbs, but I don’t recognize them and in what ratio quantity?

  5. Hi, I’m allergic to soy sauce but I have tried this recipe and loved it. I know I can replace the 1/3 cup soy sauce with coconut aminos, but do I also replace the 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauve with coconut aminos as well? I know Worcestershire sauce has soy as one of its ingredients. Please advise me!

  6. I tried this recipe twice and it was an absolute hit. I used lesser oil and butter but it was still fabulous. Thanks a lot for this recipe.

  7. You were right the steak with this marinade was delicious. What do I do with marinade after? Do I throw it out or Cani keep it for another steak? Please advise. Thank you.

    1. If the marinade has not touched the steak I like to use it for another dish and either store it in the fridge for 2 to 3 days or start marinating another steak with it. Once the marinade has touched the meat then it will need to be discarded.

  8. how are you on a keto diet and eating potatoes?? i thought that was one of the foods you shouldn’t ever eat on keto or am i wrong?

    1. Yes, the Keto diet does not recommend potatoes because they are high in carbs. The steak is the main dish for this recipe. I added the potatoes for those of you who are not following a Keto diet as well as my kids when I dished the plate for them. It is more of a beautiful shot at the end on what side you could add that goes well with this marinaded steak recipe. Hope that helps clarify for you! XOXO
