Best Steak Marinade in Existence

***I got this recipe from All Recipes. I have made this one time and I have to admit I fell in love with it because so far it is the best marinade I have found. It is flavorful, so much that I did not even need to use A1 on my steak and for me that is amazing!***

Ingredients:

1/3 cup of soy sauce

1/2 cup of olive oil

1/3 cup fresh lemon ( approximately 1 whole lemon, depending on how much juice the lemon gives. I needed to use a little extra lemon juice from a bottle.)

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1 1/2 TBS garlic powder

3 TBS dried basil

1 1/2 TBS dried parsley

1 tsp. ground white pepper

1/4 tsp. hot sauce (like Tabasco sauce, but use your favorite kind) (optional)

1 tsp. dried minced garlic (optional)

Directions:

Place the soy sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, basil, parsley, and pepper in a blender. Add hot sauce and minced garlic if using. Blend on high speed for 30 seconds until thoroughly mixed. Pour marinade over desired type of meat and cover. Refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Cook meat as desired.

 

***Cooks Notes: I did use the hot sauce, it gave it a wonderful flavor and at a 1/4 tsp, there was a mild kick, but not too bad. If you like you can always add more. I did not have any dried minced garlic so I used regular minced garlic and it was fine. I refrigerated my steaks for 24 hours and not the recommended 8 and it was fine. I think the longer in the marinade the better it is, but that is my opinion. When I make London Boils, I am going to try this marinade with them too. ***
