2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

How to make Garlic Steak Marinade

Step 1: Place the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk until well mixed.

Step 2: To a resealable zip lock bag or large bowl, add the steaks. Pour the marinade on the steaks. Before sealing the bag, squeeze as much air out as you can, then seal. Let the steaks marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Step 3: Steaks in skillet: Preheat a skillet on high heat until hot. Add the steaks to the skillet once hot and sear for about 3 minutes per side. Adjust the heat to medium-high and continue to cook the steaks, flipping as needed, to your desired doneness. It normally takes approximately 10 minutes to cook the steak depending on the thickness. For medium, the internal temperature of the steak should reach 145 degrees.

Step 4: On the Grill: To medium-high, preheat the grill. Place the steaks on the preheated grill and cook each side for about 4 to 6 minutes until the internal temperature of the steak reads 145 degrees for medium.

Step 5: Before serving, allow the steak to rest for at least 3 minutes. Enjoy!
