Marinated Ribeye

This marinade was inspired by a Mongolian Beef Crock-Pot Recipe that a friend shared with me.  My family loved the recipe so much!  With the recipe below I marinated 4 ribeye steaks.  Of course, you could use a different cut of meat or you could multiply the recipe for more steaks.

Gather Your Ingredients:

  • 4 Ribeye steaks
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (I used low sodium)
  • 2 T fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 3 good sized cloves of minced garlic
  • 1/4 t ground ginger
  • 3 scallions, sliced (use the entire scallion)

Make It:

  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Place steaks in a large zip top baggie or a dish.  Make sure they are in a single layer.  Pour marinade over the steaks and place in refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour or as long as over night.
  3. Let meat sit at room temp for about 5 to 10 minutes before cooking it.  Scrape the scallions and garlic pieces off of the meat before cooking so that they do not burn and leave a bitter taste.
  4. Now, this is where the window for interpretation is yanked wide open.  If you have a favorite method for cooking your steaks, you can by all means do it that way.  This is the method that I used:              Spread hot coals (hot but with the flames dies down) into an even layer in your grill.  Place steaks directly over the coals.  I was going for a medium-well doneness, so we cooked them for approximately 8 minutes per side.  Cooking time will vary depending on how done you want your steaks and how hot your coals are, watch them closely.
  5. I topped our steaks with grilled onions, which took them through the roof!  Slice onion approximately 1/4 inch thick slices, sprinkle with seasoned salt and drizzle with oil.  Place in a single layer in the veggie grill basket, and place over the coals for about 3 to 5 minutes per side or until they just start to get caramelized.
