Gluten Free Steak Marinade

2013 – Gluten Free Living

We had this tasty Gluten Free Steak Marinade on our T-Bone steaks the other night. While I certainly would not boast that this marinade is the “BEST Steak Marinade in Existence” it is quite good and certainly worth a try–especially if you’re gluten intolerant or have allergies to some of the marinades from a bottle.

I only had time to soak our steaks in the marinade for an hour and a half which was just about right.  The steak still had plenty of the marinade flavor after grilling and it was not overpowering. I substituted Tamari gluten free reduced sodium soy sauce for the soy sauce in the recipe and I’m glad I did.

Regular soy sauce probably would have been too strong. I would suggest eliminating the garlic powder and dried minced garlic next time and use a tablespoon of fresh minced garlic to replace both. If you have fresh herbs consider using them instead of dried.

We liked this flavorful marinade and its ingredients permeated the steak quite well. We did not wipe the steaks off before we grilled them but we did shake off the excess and a lot of the excess dripped off into the grill as well. So I recommend removing the marinade as much as possible before placing the steaks on the grill.

With the exception of adding salt and pepper we felt the steaks needed no other accompaniment. We didn’t add ketchup, barbecue sauce, A-1 or other steak sauces or anything else. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary and a different way to prepare steaks or pork tenderloin this is a great option.

When I initially posted this recipe in January 2013, I was taking pictures with an iPhone so my pictures weren’t as clear and sharp as I would have liked. I’ve been going back through all my first-year blog recipes and remaking them so I can get better pictures. To that end, I remade this recipe a few days ago (January 2017) and snapped a few new pictures.

Let me recommend a couple of things. I marinaded the beef for about 24 hours this time. I was concerned that it might overwhelm the taste of the meat, but it didn’t. It was delicious. While I scraped off the excess marinade that adhered to the beef steaks, it is probably better to wipe off the excess with damp paper towels as well.

This will prevent the oil from the marinade dripping into the grill while cooking and causing excess smoke while grilling. You may also went to poke your steaks with a fork so the marinade can sink into the meat if you prefer that method and taste for grilled foods.

Gluten Free Steak Marinade is a great marinade for any kind of beef, pork, chicken or fish. I marinated the steaks for over 24 hours and they were not overpowered by the sauce.

Gluten Free Steak Marinade is a really tasty way to prepare steaks.

I served the steaks with Garlic-Italian Sweet Potato Fries.

 

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients. I highly recommend using a gluten free reduced sodium soy sauce which will reduce the saltiness and harsh soy sauce taste. You can also substitute fresh garlic for the minced garlic and garlic powder in the recipe.

To make marinade: Measure out soy sauce and place in blender. I used Tamari which is gluten free sodium reduced soy sauce. It’s healthier than regular soy sauce. Add olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, a scant tablespoon and a half of garlic powder or a tablespoon of minced fresh garlic, parsley, basil, white pepper, dried minced garlic, (or eliminate entirely) and hot sauce. Blend ingredients about 30 seconds.

Because I put everything in the blender the ingredients are well mixed. The oil is infused with the other ingredients and doesn’t separate as easily as if I just whisked the ingredients together. The blender also cuts up the herbs somewhat so their flavors blend throughout and permeate the marinade.

Place the steaks into the marinade and turn the steaks over to coat both sides. Cover with a lid and place in the refrigerator. Shake the container and turn it upside down to coat the steaks a few times while steaks marinate.

If desired, poke the steaks with a sharp-pronged fork all over both sides of the meat so the marinade absorbs into the meat more.

Before grilling, scrape the excess marinade off the steaks. I recommend wiping both sides of the steaks down with damp paper towels as well.

Place steaks on grill. The length of cooking time is going to depend on the thickness of the steaks and how hot your grill is. Cover the grill to keep the heat in and cook the steaks. After cooking for about 5-10 minutes turn the steaks over. Check steaks to determine how rare they are and cook to your desired doneness.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: While you don’t have to blend the ingredients in a blender it does infuse the oil with the other ingredients of the marinade and since it chops up the herbs more of the herb flavors better permeate the sauce. Those who used regular soy sauce thought the recipe was too strong. I really feel using the Tamari sauce made a huge difference.

NOTE: I suggest eliminating the garlic powder and dried garlic and using fresh or about a teaspoon of minced garlic from a jar.

NOTELea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce is gluten free. The original contains these ingredients: distilled white vinegar, molasses, sugar, water, salt, onions, anchovies, garlic, cloves, tamarind extract, natural flavorings, chili pepper extract.
