This easy steak marinade will have your friends bringing their steaks to
you, asking you to marinate it for them! It adds a delicious, elaborate


Serves: 2

  • 1 large jalapeno

  • 1 large beef steak

  • 1 tablespoon black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon red pepper

  • 1 tablespoon white pepper

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon meat tenderizer

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 2 tablespoons ground sea salt

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1/3 cup red wine

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco(R) or Crystal(R))

  • 6 teaspoons minced garlic

  • 2 limes, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder

  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation method

Prep: 30 mins
| Cook: 15 mins
| Extra time: 1 hour, marinating


First, we'll create a rub for the steak, and then the marinade.


Begin by slicing the jalapeno in half and seeding it thoroughly.
Firmly rub the steak with the jalapeno halves, covering all sides.
Reserve jalapeno.


In a clean, dry bowl, mix the black pepper, red pepper, white pepper,
garlic powder, meat tenderizer, paprika and sea salt. Rub mixture over
entire steak until bowl is empty.


Mix the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, red wine, olive oil, hot pepper
sauce, garlic, lime juice, mustard powder, and salt and pepper to taste
in a large, shallow dish. Stir concoction well.


Set steak in marinade, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at
least 1 hour and up to 30 hours. Half-way through marinating process,
turn steak over and re-cover.


Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.


Grill steaks to desired doneness, about 7 minutes per side for
medium-rare. After grilling, let sit for 10 minutes before cutting or
eating for maximum flavor. Enjoy!

Spice up any cut of steak with a tasty and easy steak marinade recipe.
Marinating a steak in herbs, spices, wine, vinegar and other fresh
ingredients allows you to add just the right amount of flavor to a
steak, tenderize it and bring out the wonderful natural flavors and
juices of any cut of meat.

These are some tips that i have learned from one of the chef who work in continental treat restaurant
in Edmonton, I have driven by this restaurant a few times before and
noticed that they are open really late so I decided to drop by one night
after work and pick up dinner. The staff were helpful and friendly
which is pretty impressive even at late hour also, and luckily i managed
to extract this tip from him that was unknown to me.

    Love the marinade idea but isn't steak tartare a dish that is raw beef mixed with spices and sometimes an egg?

    This is strange !  Another reader and I posted a similar note earlier, saying that we thought "tartare" meant "raw".  Those posts have been deleted.

    Have the Forum Nazis been at work here?

    Edit/Update:  The OP posted his thread twice, and we responded to the other thread.  I feel better now.

    And I wasn't trying to be a smart a** either. Just trying to see if I was missing something.

  • I'm pretty sure tartar is finely cut and seasoned raw beef.  Its excellent stuff.

    I'm a suspicious sort of guy I guess, but that post smells somehow of spam.

    With all of those strong flavored ingredients do you think you can taste the meat?
    If you don't think too good, don't think too much.
