  • 4 of your favorite grilling steaks


  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons dried basil
  • 3 large garlic cloves minced or pressed
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes*
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Combine marinade ingredients in a liquid measuring cup and pour into a large plastic bag. Give it a little shake.
  • Add steaks and marinate for at least two hours, preferably overnight, up to 24 hours, flipping once halfway through so that the steak is evenly flavored.
  • On your grill or using a griddle, cook steaks until they reach your preferred level of doneness.
  • Allow steaks to rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.


*Great if you have them, not a deal breaker if you don't.
