The marinade for this delicious Indian recipe is very spicy. You can reduce the level of spices by simply reducing the amount.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: Serves 6


  • 1 Tbsp. grated ginger root
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 lbs. strip steak, cut into 6 serving size pieces


Place ginger root, onion, and garlic in blender or food processor and process until very finely minced.

Grind coriander and cumin seeds, cayenne pepper, salt, and mustard seeds in a spice grinder or coffee grinder until powdered. Stir into onion mixture.

Heat 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil in large skillet and add onion mixture. Saute gently over medium low heat until very fragrant. Remove from heat and place on steaks, turning to coat. Refrigerate steaks, tightly covered, for 2-24 hours.

When ready to cook, prepare and preheat grill. Remove steaks from marinade and cook over medium high coals for 10-15 minutes until desired doneness. Slice thinly across the grain to serve.

Excellent Steak, Guest nathan

I made this last night and even though I didnt have more than an hour to marinade, it was excellent. I am going to make it again next week with 24 hours to sit. I highly recommend it! I added a little extra garlic and that worked great for those of you who love garlic. Enjoy
