I have to start this post by saying Mr. Schwartz and I were very hesitant to marinate our steaks. We are more of a salt and pepper and that's it kinda of steak eaters. But, this marinade knocked our socks off. The steaks were super juicy and the flavor was fantastic.
Does anything go better with steaks than potatoes? No, I don't think so. This is my go-to roasted potato recipe. It is easy, I always have the ingredients on hand and they make great leftovers for breakfast hash.
Here it is, the perfect grilling duo.
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons dijion mustard
4 cloves garlic
1/8 teaspoon red chili flakes
Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl.
Place your steaks in a large zip top bag and pour the marinade over the steaks. Seal the bag and try to get as much of the air out as possible.
Put the bag into the fridge in a bowl or on a large plate. Let marinade for at least 1 hour.
Grill steaks on medium high heat to your desired doneness.
