Easy Asian Steak Marinade Recipe
Simple Yet Elegant
For an easy yet elegant steak supper that's absolutely bursting with delicious and bold Asian flavors, I invite you to try my simple steak marinade recipe.
It takes just a few minutes to prepare, and is perfect for adding deep and satisfying flavor to steak before grilling. The rich flavors of Black Bean Sauce, Garlic and Ginger combine beautifully to tenderize and add Asian flair to any cut of meat. My favourite cut for using this simple steak marinade is the New York Striploin, but you could use tenderloin, prime rib, or any other cut to your own preference.
This recipe makes enough marinade for 2 small steaks, or 1 large one. Today I'm going to just grill 1 of these large steaks - which is plenty to serve 2 people.
Steak Marinade Recipe
For the marinade you will need:-
- 1-1/2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
- 2 Tablespoons Minced Ginger
- 2 Tablespoons Black Bean Sauce
- 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
- 2 Teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 Teaspoon Vegetable Oil
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
I do find that this steak marinade recipe is better when fresh ginger is used rather than that from a jar. A piece of ginger root measuring approximately 1 inch is sufficient. Simply peel the ginger root and then chop it very finely with a sharp knife until it looks like the picture above.
For the garlic, it doesn't really matter whether you mince fresh garlic or use a jar of minced garlic. I find that the flavor is mostly the same. So, to keep things easy and to make this a really simple steak marinade, I use a jar of minced garlic which I keep in my refrigerator. It's very handy to have a jar of minced garlic to hand for recipes such as this.
Measure out all of the marinade ingredients and then mix them together in a flat dish that will be large enough to hold the steak. Once mixed, lay the steak in the marinade and use a spoon to coat thoroughly with the mixture.
Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Easy Side Veggies
Complete your sizzling steak supper by serving some grilled fresh vegetables on the side.
This couldn't be easier to do and gives a wonderful "gourmet" touch to the meal!
After grilling your steak (and while allowing it to rest) simply grill some fresh vegetables for a few minutes, brushing them a couple of times with honey balsamic vinegar to create a sweet and sticky glaze. My favorite grilled vegetables to compliment this dish are organic carrots and chinese brocollini. I just love how the colors and flavors all come together to compliment the flavors of the steak marinade recipe. Enjoy!
