Ginger-Soy Grilled Steaks

We seem to grill steaks once a week in the summertime, usually on a Sunday. Last weekend's recipe came from one of my favorite web sites for recipes, Epicurious. I chose this one for Ginger-Soy Grilled Steaks.

6 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons oriental sesame oil
1 tablespoon chopped peeled fresh ginger
1 cup chopped green onions
1 1 1/2-pound top sirloin steak (about 1 inch thick)

Blend first 5 ingredients in processor until almost smooth; pour into 13x9x2-inch glass dish. Mix green onions into marinade. Add steak and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 1 day, turning steak occasionally.

The directions also called for boiling the marinade to make a sauce, but we didn't do that. Jon grilled the steaks to medium.

These steaks had great flavor, and the ginger really stood out as the prominent flavor. We marinated them for 6 hours, which was plenty of time.

  1. The marinade looks like a wonderful combination of ingredients which I'm sure imparts some delicious flavor! I'll have to try this with steaks or even pork or chicken!
