  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder


  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl or in a resealable gallon sized freezer bag. Mix to combine.
  • Add steaks to the marinade. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or up to 24 hours.
  • Cook steak as desired. Marinade makes enough for 2 pounds of steak.


  1. This marinade can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days, so it's great to make in advance if you're entertaining. You can even freeze your marinade for up to 2 months if need be!
  2. Feel free to use a low sodium soy sauce if you're watching your salt intake.
  3. The steak in these photos is topped with an herb butter which is super easy to make. Simply combine 1/4 cup softened salted butter with 2 tablespoons fresh chopped herbs, 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Add a dollop of butter on top of each steak as it comes off the grill.
