Asian Marinade for Steak

  • Heat grill to medium/high. Once hot, place steaks on the grill and cook for 1½ minutes, then rotate it (don't flip it!) 30-45 degrees. Cook another 1½ minutes, then flip the steak and repeat the same process.

  • Let rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing against the grain.

  • I grill my steaks to medium rare. If you would like yours well-done, add an additional minute to each rotation of the steak. For rare, reduce it by 15-20 seconds each rotation. Cook time may need to be adjusted for other size steaks.
  • If you don’t want diamond grill marks, you can simply cook the steak on each side for 3 minutes each side.
