Marinades are supposed to make steaks more flavorful and tender, but most do neither.  Soy sauce acts much like a brine, helping the meat retain moisture during cooking and making it tender. The one hour time is perfect.  This is enough for a 2 pound steak.

Better Than A-1 Marinade 2024 | BBQ, RECIPES, Worldly Faves


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar


  1. Combine soy, oil, sugar, Worcestershire, garlic, chives and pepper in medium bowl. Remove 1/4 cup marinade and combine with vinegar in small bowl; set aside.
  2. Place remaining marinade and steaks in gallon-size zip-lock bag; press out as much air as possible and seal bag. Refrigerate 1 hour, flipping bag after 30 minutes to ensure that steaks marinate evenly.
  3. Remove steaks from marinade, letting any excess marinade drip back into bag. Discard bag and marinade. Grill steaks as desired.
  4. Transfer steaks to shallow pan and pour reserved marinade over top. Tent loosely with foil and let rest 10 minutes, turning meat half-way through.
  5. Slice steak or serve whole, passing reserved marinade if desired.
