  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (heaping) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons dried basil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce optional
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic


  • Place meat into a large ziptop bag. Using a bowl, pour in all of the ingredients and whisk until thoroughly mixed. If you have a blender at home, feel free to blend the marinade ingredients together. Otherwise, a whisk works fine too!
  • Pour the marinade into a ziptop bag, directly over the meat. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours. The longer you allow the meat to marinate, the better, but because of the acid (lemon juice) in the marinade, do not marinate longer than 4 hours.
  • Remove meat from the marinade and DISCARD THE MARINADE - do not reuse. Cook steak as desired and enjoy!
