Paleo Steak Marinades

I just inherited some nice steaks from my dad’s bbq last weekend. He over bought, and I’m overjoyed!  So here I am with some nice uncooked steaks in my freezer waiting to be cooked up. I wanted to try something different than our usual salt, pepper and rosemary so I started searching marinades. Most have the dreaded soy sauce, or molasses or brown sugar in them but here are some that are paleo. Just in time for the weekend!

Of course you should be using Grass Fed and Finished Beef! Hearst Ranch usually has great deals.

Below are from
Flank Steak Marinade:
3 cloves garlic, chopped
5 sprigs fresh thyme
½ yellow onion, sliced
½ cup wine (red or dry white) (btw this is listed as OK in The Paleo Diet book.)
1 tablespoon Honey
3 tablespoons olive oil

Add the garlic, thyme, onion, wine, sugar, and olive oil to a big Ziploc bag and shake until well mixed.
Add the flank steak and turn well to coat it in the wine flank steak marinade.
Let the steak marinade for up to 3 days or at least several hours.
Discard the marinade and broil or grill the steak.

Garlic and Herb Marinade

½ cup chopped red onion
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup olive or coconut oil
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup snipped fresh parsley
1 minced clove garlic
½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine all the marinade ingredients well.
Put the steak into a 13 x 9 inch glass dish and pour the zesty herb marinade over the top of it, turning the steak a couple of times until it is well coated.
Marinate the steak for 2 or 3 hours in the refrigerator, turning the steak a few times during this time.

Beef Fajita Marinade
½ cup chopped onion
½ teaspoon salt
½ tablespoon paprika
1 can beer
¼ cup vinegar
1 teaspoon oregano
3 minced cloves garlic
½ teaspoon cumin
½ cup olive oil
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
⅓ cup lime juice

Combine the marinade ingredients, adding the beer last.
Put a 2 pound steak in a Ziploc bag and pour in the fajita marinade.
Let the steak marinate for between 8 and 24 hours in the refrigerator, turning the bag once or twice during that time.

Now who’s ready to BBQ this weekend!?
