How long do you marinate steak?
The marinate time really depends on the cut of meat. To really simplify it, the cheaper the meat, the longer I marinate.
So a cheap sirloin tip steak gets 6-8 hours, or even overnight, while a NY strip steak only needs about 2 hours.
This is also a great money saving tip! Buy a cheaper cut of steak and let it marinate overnight. The marinade will add tenderness and flavor and no one will never know that you didn’t spring for the super expensive cuts of meat!

First, start with a clean and oiled grill.
Then, place the steaks on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes, until brown and a little charred. Turn the steaks over and grill for another 3-5 minutes.
Let steaks rest on a cutting board or plate for 5 minutes before slicing.
How to Tell When a Steak is Done
I like to use a meat thermometer to make certain that my steak is perfectly cooked.
Here is a guide for internal temperatures:
- Medium-rare -an internal temperature of 135 degrees F
- Medium – an internal temperature of 140 degrees F
- Medium-well – an internal temperature of 150 degrees F
