  • *Honey can be subbed for Maple syrup, but because it's sweeter half the amount. Or mix 2T brown sugar with 2T water as a replacement. Do not use Pancake syrup though! shopping list
  • ** I prefer this without aged balsamic, but if all you have is aged than I recommend a red or white wine vinegar instead. shopping list

How to make it

  • Mix the soy sauce, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Smash the cloves of garlic, or roughly chop and add it to the marinade. Check for seasonings, I usually add just a pinch of salt and plenty of black pepper.
  • Trim any excess fat off the steaks, and make light criss-cross marks into both sides of the steak with a sharp knife. (not too deep) Add the steaks to a large zip-loc bag and pour over the marinade. (if adding a sprig of rosemary or thyme, add it now, but don't use dried herbs!)
  • Massage the marinade into the steaks, and seal tightly so no air is in the bag. Refrigerate for at least 6 hrs or overnight. (up to 48 hrs for tougher cuts of beef like round steak.) Turning the bag at least once a day.
  • When ready to grill, remove the steaks from the marinade and pat dry with paper towel and let it get to room temp. Meanwhile, place the marinade in a small pot and bring to a boil and slightly reduce, approx. 5-10 minutes. *I like to brush the cooked marinade on the steaks while grilling, but you can skip this step if you like!
  • Lightly oil the steaks and grill over medium high heat, or use a cast iron pan/griddle. (glaze the steaks with marinade if desired) and cook to your liking! I sear each side for 6 minutes, then move to indirect heat/oven and finish cooking to medium. (The cook time depends on the thickness of your steak and how well you like it)
  • After removing from heat, cover with foil and let rest for 5-10 minutes. And enjoy!
