Ingredients for Steak Marinade

Olive oil – Use whichever brand is your favorite. 

Soy Sauce – I like to use low-sodium and use this one, but you can use a generic soy sauce too. 

Worcestershire sauce – this flavorful sauce adds tamarind and chili pepper extracts for a nice flavor.

Dijon mustard – You want to use any variety of Dijoh, not regular yellow mustard.

Garlic – Fresh garlic is best, but you can use a dried minced garlic in a pinch

Minced Onions – I use dried minced onions for marinades.

Steak seasoning – The one I prefer is this one

Parsley, finely chopped
