Simple Marinated Steak

Simple Marinated Steak is a super easy recipe. You can marinate the steak for a few minutes or several hours; it will be delicious either way! It's served with Fresh Corn Salad in the picture.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 17 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds steak (round steak, family steak, or sirloin steak)


In a heavy duty ziplock bag, combine olive oil, garlic, garlic powder, soy sauce, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and pepper. Cut steak into serving size pieces and add to bag. Seal bag and massage marinade into steaks.

Place bag in a casserole dish and refrigerate for 20 minutes up to 8 hours.

When ready to cook, prepare and preheat grill. Remove steak from marinade; discard remaining marinade. Grill steaks over medium hot coals for 4-7 minutes per side, turning once, until desired doneness.

Remove from grill, place on serving plate, cover with foil, and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
