How long should steaks marinate?

First off, it’s important to know that marinades are more about flavor than tenderizing. For less tender cuts, they should be marinated for at least 6 hours, but no more than 24 hours. Tender cuts of beef, like a tenderloin, only need to be marinated for 15 minutes to 1 hour for maximum flavor.

Can you freeze steak in marinade?

Absolutely! Just combine your marinade ingredients in a zip-top freezer bag, add the raw meat, seal it, shake things around to fully coat the meat, and then place the bag in the freezer. The marinated meat will keep well there for up to three months.

If time allows, we try to marinate over night to get the most out of the marinade.

Remove steak from refrigerator for 30-60 minutes before cooking according to your desired method.

  • Hi there. I am new to cooking. What kinds of steaks do you use for this? I went to the store and there are so many different types of steaks, I didn’t know which one to pick. Can you help?

    • Absolutely! It can be overwhelming when faced with that decision! In this specific recipe, we went with a New York Strip. There are super fatty steaks like a rib-eye that have a lot of marbling which enhances the flavors. An example of a lean steak would be a filet, which is delicious also. The strip is right in the middle because it has some fat but not overly chewy and typically a good price point. Hope that helps!
