Our Favorite Steak Marinade

We love steak. It is keto-friendly (when we remember to not eat carbs). It is healthy. It is tasty. It can be grilled. It can be broiled. It is perfect for cookouts. It is perfect for cold days. It is what’s for dinner!

Sometimes we want it au natural and sometimes we like it marinated (especially if we can only find a cheaper cut that day at the store). Thin sliced and rare with a side of sautéed or grilled veggies–usually zucchini or asparagus–can not be beat. I like my cow mooing (rare), he likes his medium-rare. The boy prefers burgers. I can’t please everyone.

Steak should always have a red by its side. I mean, if you prefer white wine, go for it. But, we drink the full red here with beef. The fattiness of the meat is begging for tannins. The steak needs something bold and beautiful to stand up to it! Together they elevate the magic of this pairing. Try your marinated steak with a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Dry Red Blend.
