This marinade for steak recipe is a simple combination of ingredients that adds fantastic flavor to your steaks! Marinate for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.

Those steaks are seasoned with salt and pepper. But sometimes it is fun to switch things up and season with a marinade for steak!
How To Make A Marinade For Steak
Put the olive oil, soy sauce, sea salt, minced garlic, black pepper, crushed red pepper, and paprika in a bowl and whisk until combined.
What else can I add to steak marinade?
I tested several different combinations and although they were all okay, this combination ended up being the best steak marinade in our opinion. But everyone likes different things! Here are some more things you could add:
- Worcestershire sauce
- balsamic vinegar
- lemon juice
- brown sugar
Put the steak and the marinade for steak in a gallon sized zip-top bag.
Place in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the steak and discard the marinade for steak. Grease the grill grates before adding the steak.
Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of your steak and how well you want it cooked.
How long should I cook my steak?
The length of time for cooking steak depends on how thick the steaks are and how you want them cooked. You can use a thermometer to check the temperature. For medium rare, the temperature should be 130˚F, 140˚F for medium and 160˚F for well done.
Remove the steak from the grill, top it with herbed butter, and allow it to rest for 5 minutes.
