“The World’s Greatest” Marinade
by Craig Maltby for Club LT
Summer is the season for grilling – but not all grilling recipes are created equal. Some guys leave the heat too high. Others can’t tell their cumin from their cayene.
If you’re grilling steak that weekend, here’s a marinade that’s gonna get ‘em talking. And asking for seconds.
• ¼ cup olive oil
• ¼ cup soy sauce
• ¼ cup Dijon-style mustard
• ¼ cup red wine
• 3 cloves garlic – diced
• 1 teaspoon black pepper
• A pinch of salt
Mix this all together in a large bowl until well blended. It will work perfectly for 4 to 6 8-oz. beef filets or similar size steaks.
Pour marinade onto steaks in a re-sealable container and refrigerate for 4 to 8 hours prior to grilling. You can do more or less time, if needed.
Periodically brush a little leftover marinade on the meat as it’s grilling.
Whenever I use this marinade, my meal guests give a small gasp at that first bite as they experience a little burst of nirvana.
I got this recipe from somewhere else years ago. It was online, but I can’t remember where as I memorized this long ago. So thanks to whoever originated this.
