How to Marinate Steak
Hi everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home, sharing my go to steak marinade recipe that I use every.single.time. that I make steak.

If you don’t have one of those fancy marinade containers, just use a baggie! Works just as well!
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 over night. 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!
