Simple Steak Marinade for Grilling

This is just a simple, basic marinade for steaks.

2 8 - 12 oz. steaks (whatever kind you prefer)


1/4 cup olive oil
3 - 4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon red onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
1 teaspoon fresh Italian parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Place steaks in glass baking pan. Mix marinade ingredients
and pour over steaks, making sure to allow marinade to flow
underneath steaks. Cover with plastic wrap and place in
refrigerator for about 4 hours, turning steaks once after two
hours or so. Grill to desired doneness. Salt to taste and eat.


1. You can adjust ingredients as needed; larger steaks may
require a bit more olive oil, and the amount of garlic desired
varies from person to person, of course. Peanut oil can be
used just as well as olive oil.

2. Steaks can be panfried instead of grilled; the recipe works
equally well for both.
