How to Make Cheap Steak Taste Like a Million Dollars


We love to use the BBQ as often as possible in the summer. We cannot always afford the best steaks though, and if you don’t prep them right, they can come out tough and chewy! 

We have played around with various marinades to get the tastiest steak that just melt in your mouth and I we have finally found a winner….and it is super easy!

Steak Marinade (measurements to taste)

  • Soy sauce
  • Chopped garlic
  • Ground pepper 


That is all. Let marinade for at least 8 hours. 24 hours is much better though. Take it out every couple hours and shake the marinade around for best results. You will be able to cut it with a butter knife. It doesn’t seem to matter what cut of steak it is, it always turns out amazing on the BBQ!

Sorry, I don’t have any after pictures, once these steaks came off the BBQ last night, I didn’t have the patience to take pictures, I just grabbed my fork and knife and dug in!!
