It’s FINALLY summer which means it’s time to break out the BBQ. All winter long, one of the summer treats I crave the most is a nice grilled steak.
While there’s nothing wrong with a nice rib eye seasoned with some Montreal Steak spice and grilled to medium rare, Mr. Bacon prefers steak with a bit of a flavour kick so we wind up making steaks with this marinade more often. I use top sirloin steaks. They often go on sale in a ‘club pack’ of two for around $12-$14. That’s a lot of decently tender beef for the price so keep an eye out!
Best Ever Steak Marinade
3/4 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 cups tomato juice (I buy the small six pack of cans so I always have tomato juice handy without having to open a giant can)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Pour all of the ingredients into a large ziplock bag. Throw the steak in and prick it with a fork to let the marinade seep into the meat. Seal the bag up and marinate for 24 hours or overnight.
Grill the steak basting with the reserved marinade.
Let the meat rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
