Balsamic Marinated Steak, this will be your new go to Steak Marinade. It is packed full of delicious flavors and I promise, you will love it. Balsamic Vinegar paired with perfect a blend of seasoning to include Oregano and Basil. It is perfect on the Grill, cooked in a Cast Iron skillet or broiled in the Oven. It doesn’t matter how you cook it, it matters how you marinade it! A perfectly marinated steak can make your meal.
How to make:
It is super easy to make the marinade, which is something I love with my busy schedule. You just mix all the marinade ingredients together in a mason jar, measuring cup or bowl. Give it a good shake or mix and let sit while you prepare the meat. I have found that tenderized meat also allows it to better soak in the marinade. Also stabbing it with a fork helps. Not only does it help the flavor but it is also a great way to take out the frustrations of the day. Yes, I tend to do this with all the proteins I make and it makes a difference.
Put the Steak into a seal-able container, cover with the marinade and seal. Put in the fridge from one hour to a day or two. I usually let it marinade for one day, I think it is the perfect amount of time but it is also good if you can only marinade it for an hour.
I love to pair my Steak with a baked potato topped with my favorite lactose free sour cream. Ok let’s face it, sometimes its more like sour cream topped with baked potato. Don’t judge, I know I am not the only one. With summer coming I love to pair my steak with balsamic marinated tomato, basil and feta cheese. When not eating it with a sour cream smothered baked potato or feta and tomatoes I love to slice it up and put it on top of a salad paired with seasonal veggies. In spring time its strawberries, summer time roasted peppers and in the fall it a slaw with broccoli cabbage and radishes. You honestly can’t go wrong with what your pair it with.Print
