Best Steak Marinade in Existence
½ cup olive oil
⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
⅓ cup soy sauce
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce 3 tablespoons dried basil 1½ tablespoons minced fresh garlic 1 teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon hot sauce or crushed
red pepper flakes
1 (1½-pound, 1-inch-thick) sirloin
steak, cut into 4 pieces 2 tablespoons butter
1. Blend oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, Worcestershire, basil, garlic, black pepper, and hot sauce in a blender on high speed until well combined, about 30 seconds.
2. Put steak in a 1-gallon zip-top plastic bag; add marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat. Chill at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Remove steak from bag, discarding marinade, and pat steak dry with paper towels.
4. Heat a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter; reduce heat to medium. Add steaks; cook, turning once, until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to oven. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part registers at least 135°F for medium-rare, about 5 minutes, or 145°F for medium, about 7 minutes. Transfer steak to a serving platter; cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes. Drizzle with pan juices.
