Steak marinade is an important part of successful grilling, and there are a few necessary ingredients to make it work. Salt and oil are two musts for any marinade. While salt will pull out the juices, it will also help the meat absorb the flavor. The oil will naturally enhance any herbs and spices you use. You may also want to add soy sauce or sugar, depending on what flavor you’re looking for. Keep in mind that ingredients like lemon juice and vinegar can work to tenderize your steak. Once your marinade is ready, prick some holes in the meat so the sauce can be absorbed. Cover the meat with marinade and leave it in a plastic bag, flipping it if needed. It should marinate in the fridge for the recipe’s suggested time until you’re ready to grill!
