Juicy Steakhouse Marinated Steak

I found a nice recipe for steak marinade at Easy Steak Marinades. They have quite a few recipes there, it was hard to decide which one to make this time but finally, I selected one that included ingredients I already had at home. I didn't use steakhouse steaks, I used beef striploin that I bought last week and froze. I defrosted them in the fridge overnight before marinating. I really adjusted the amounts of each ingredient. I didn't think that too much extra salt was a good idea considering the soy sauce and the steak seasoning are already salty. It was still a bit salty but overall, very tasty!

Here's what it looks like after marinating for 24 hours.

And here it is all cooked. Yum yum! Very tender.

3 striploin steaks (mine were about 7oz each and I cut them in half)
6 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce (whatever you like)
2 tablespoons Montreal steak seasoning
1/2 onion, diced
1 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced

Place all ingredients in a Ziploc bag and smush them around. The original recipe said to blend it but who feels like doing extra dishes? Add the steak to the bag and try to get all the pieces coated well. Try to remove the air from the bag while closing the zipper. Refrigerate for about 24 hours.

I blotted mine with paper towel before cooking them.

You can grill the steak, fry it or get out the George Foreman. I used a grill pan. Cook them for a few minutes per side depending on how you like them done.

The recipe said to boil the remaining marinade for 5 minutes and use it to baste the steak during cooking. I didn't. If I wanted to baste it I would have reserved some of the marinade before putting the steak in, but maybe that's just me.
