My dad has always made the best steak. Ever. It cuts like butter and the flavor is always on point! Below is a variation of the recipe that he shared with me. I hope you guys enjoy it!
1/2 c soy sauce
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 dash red pepper flakes
1 – 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/4 c red wine (or a splash of water, if no red wine is available)*
Combine ingredients, stirring thoroughly. Place the steak into a zip lock bag and pour marinade into the bag. Make sure that the marinade has touched every part of the steak, then place into the refrigerator! Allow the steak to soak up all that wonderful goodness for about 1 hour, prior to cooking. Follow your usual steak cooking method and enjoy!
*Red wine is great for tenderizing meat but if you don’t have any on hand, a splash of water will do! Why only a splash? Because you don’t want to drown the flavors of your marinade or make your steak tough!
