This recipe came about because I didn’t have any Worcestershire sauce in the house and wanted to marinade a steak. Apparently most people who marinade steaks consider it an essential ingredient, so I had to come up with something of my own. This is such a big hit at our house, we haven’t tried any other recipe since.
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon honey
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
Add all ingredients to a container large enough to hold 4 to 6 steaks. Whisk ingredients until thoroughly combined. Add steaks and marinade in the refrigerator for 2 to 6 hours. If not all the steaks are covered with marinade, turn them in the container several times while marinading.
Remove steaks from marinade. Broil or grill steaks until they’re cooked how you like them. Bush with the left-over marinade once or twice while cooking.
