The Best Steak Marinade

I’ve tried a lot of different steak marinades! Some good some bad, nothing compares to this steak marinade I’m about to give you! We use it over and over! The only time we change it up is when we make Carne asada. This marinade gives the steak so much flavor you are going to love it.

What Is The Best Cut of Steak For this Marinade

I find rib eye, new york strip, top sirloin, skirt, and flank steak work best. 

Cooking Steak

This comes down to personal preference, I like mine medium-well but more on the well-done side. You want to take the steak temperature in the thickest part of the meat, make sure to insert your thermometer horizontally. Never cut into the steak you will lose all the juices that keep the meat moist and tender. Here is a temperature guide.

  • Rare: 125 – 130 degrees
  • Medium rare: 130 – 135 degrees
  • Medium: 135 – 145 degrees
  • Medium well: 145 – 150 degrees
  • Well: 150 – 160 degrees (my preference)
