Keyword: best steak marinade
Servings: 12
Calories: 61kcal


  • 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Season All {or any type of all-purpose seasoning salt}
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder


  • Put a gallon-sized Ziplock bag in a bowl and add all the ingredients of the marinade to the bag. (The bowl helps keep the bag upright and in place.)
  • Seal the bag and shake the bag around a bit, as well as squish it around with your hands to mix all the ingredients.
  • Add the steak and squish it all around again, until the marinade covers the steak.
  • Allow to marinate for 3-6 hours, depending on the thickness of your steak.
  • Grill steak 2-6 minutes per side, depending on the type of steak used and overall thickness. Enjoy!


I provide the nutritional information, but know that you don't actually consume a vast majority of the marinade! So the sodium & sugar count especially isn't an accurate portrayal of what you eat.
