We are all still adjusting to the back to school schedule around here which makes the timing of Labor Day weekend so perfect. The kids will have one more opportunity for a lazy Monday morning. I’m already planning on several cups of coffee and will read the entire newspaper, front to back. Total luxury! I can’t believe the things I get excited about these days. It’s a sad state of affairs. I also plan to pull out a classic summer menu and take advantage of the beautiful weather we inevitably get as soon as soon as the kids return to school.
This is my favorite, go to, easy-peasy, steak marinade. I’ve tried bunches of them but always end up using this one over and over again.
I almost always use top sirloin with this marinade. When we grill around here we’re typically feeding a crowd so what you see here is about 3 pounds of steak. I cut the larger steaks into 3” to 4” inch pieces before marinating to ensure each piece will be nicely coated with marinade before grilling.
I recommend using an instant read thermometer so you can catch it right when it’s at a perfect medium-rare which will be about 135 degrees F. Always allow your grilled steak to rest for at least 5 minutes once you take it off the grill before slicing so all those good juices don’t escape.
I like to slice the steak prior to serving. This is something I’ve learned from years of cooking for a big family and hosting lots and lots of summer parties. It’s a great way to stretch a few pounds of meat to serve a large number of people since folks will typically just take a few slices and fill the rest of their plate up with side dishes. And, trust me, no one will complain. It’s steak!
