Searching for the perfect BBQ/Grilled Steak Marinade

jlisa1 May 22, 2012 04:39 PM

I have a few marinade recipes that I have used (on both chicken and steak), but I want that very classic steak flavor that I have had occasionally over the years (but before I would ask for a recipe). A little salty but wonderful flavor that seems to make the steak heavenly with every bite. Sometimes I have had it at steakhouses but I have no idea how to make it at home.

Any help is greatly appreciated (but no MSG recipes please!)

    Best from-scratch Steak Marinade?

      I'm not being smart, but better steakhouses don't marinate their beef. Is it possible that the flavor you crave is simply a well-cooked steak with nothing added? A well-cooked steak (especially one that has been dry-aged) has a whole host of wonderful flavors.
