You will NOT be sorry if you marinate your steak in:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove of minced garlic or some garlic powder

When I read a similar recipe, my jaw dropped. It’s like… everything good in one marinade! Yum! I adjusted the ratios a little bit to suit my tastes… the original was a bit heavy on the Worcestershire sauce.

We made these steaks when we  had just moved in to the house, didn’t have any pots, pans, or the grill, and really wanted to eat something “real”… we found the broiler pan in that drawer under the oven and rejoyced!

To broil a steak, first turn on your broiler and put the pan in the oven to preheat.

When everything is super-hot, plop your marinated steaks on the pan and return to the oven (don’t forget oven mitts!)

After about 4-6 minutes (depending on how you like your steaks cooked), flip over your steaks.

And another 4-6 minutes later, you’ll have delicious steak.

I like mine on the rare side, so I kind of under cooked it… The edges were really good but I did have to cook the middle a bit more.

But… yuuuum.

  1. I marinated a steak for the first time, popped it into my toaster oven and timed it for 4 minutes on each side. It usually comes out great, but it was way too rare. Do you know if more time is needed to cook when it’s marinaded?

    • Your problem is you’re using a toaster over, which does not get hot enough to cook steak for 4 minutes. Use a cast iron skillet and your broiler next time and you won’t be disappointed.

      • Oven not over, sorry for the typo.

  2. […] I marinade lean cuts of steak over night with a mixture of low sodium soy sauce (or Worcestershire Sauce), low sodium beef broth, citrus juice (lemon, lime or orange) and a combo of herbs and spices. Zaatar – a Lebanese thyme seasoning – works quite well. I prepare my steaks in the oven – see tips on broiling steak. […]

  3. i,m gonna try this for father,s day wish me luck i,ll let u know how it turned out yo

  4. YOU ARE AMAZING FOR POSTING THIS. my husband is gonna love me 100x more because of this. I tried making steak on the foreman the other night (i SUCK at cooking) and ummm…………. alksdjfalskdfj! it was rubbery.

  5. Yeah, it was a little too rare… like I said, I ate the edges and then popped it in for a few more minutes. I only did 3 minutes on each side, so i think 4 on each side would’ve been better.
    But that’s how we do things… domesticity by trial and error. 😛

  6. Wow!!!! That’s really rare. I haven’t eaten steak in many years, but I never remember eating it that rare.
