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.

How to Grill Steak

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!

      Haha A.A.Zavala - if I didn't have to work then I'd be cooking and baking all day long. I LOVE experimenting with food and creating new dishes. Never tried the deadly puffer fish though LOL. I feel bad that I keep tempting Hyph. I hope I don't push her over to the dark side :)

      Hi tsmog, you've really got me thinking there! I don't have a George Foreman grill but I'm sure I can whip something up for you, my friend.

      Rosemay - now you know what to have for supper! Glad to be of assistance :-)

      SanneL, thanks for the votes - balsamic vinegar is great on veggies isn't it?

      Hi Tony, thanks for visiting my hub and commenting. Any cut of meat with marbling is great for this marinade too! The flavour gets into them all.

      Homesteadbound, I'm not sure if I would want to make this marinade without the black bean sauce but if you try it that way I'd love to know how you get on. Thanks for coming by, hope you had a great day!

      Hyph, sorry to keep tempting you. You've got me intrigued now? :-)

      Rika, I'm glad you liked it! Enjoy, and thanks for coming by to comment.

      After I responded to you, guess what my dear husband brought home. Some cheap cuts of steak. I'm trying this out tomorrow. I don't have the bean sauce, will probably try it without it, not sure. But I'll let you know how it turns out!

      I will NOT eat meat, I will NOT eat eat. Even though Cloverleaf keeps tempting me.

      I am writing something and dedicating it to you Cloverleaf! Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks.

      You've garnered quite a reputation for yourself, and well deserved.

      I love Asian food, in fact I love food, but Asian is one of my favorites.

      Bookmarking this one for the next time we have steaks. Looking forward to it!

      HI Clover

      mouth like niagra falls after reading your recipe sounds good, and I bet it tasts even better.

      Your comments about cheaaper cuts of meat; I use rand or round cut, chuck, lots of marbling tastes great on a hot grill, and are less than half the price per pound than serloin.

      keep cooking.

      Just stopped by on break at work Cloverleaf. Saw you on answering some comments. So, I rushed over looking for your latest. M'm, M'm that looks good.

      Cloverleaf, I wanted to say hello and thanks. But, I have a request and a challenge for you. I am a single dude, I don't own a grill, but have a George Foreman grill. Got any good recipes for it? I'm lookin for something I can do in less than 30 min. I'll quote my friend the white rabbit "I'm late / I'm late / For a very important date. / No time to say "Hello." / Goodbye. / I'm late, I'm late, I'm late."

      Maybe there is some good SEO for it too? I know if anyone can figure this out with something really tasty it would be you. I'm gon'na try this recipe on Thur, my day off. M'm, M'm, this is a perfect meal for my diabetes menu plan.
