Tenderizing steak is essential for ensuring a juicy and flavorful result, especially for tougher cuts of meat. Here’s a savory steak tenderization method along with a recipe to create a delicious dish:

Savory Steak Tenderization Method:

Ingredients for Tenderization:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (optional for added caramelization)

Instructions for Tenderization:

  1. Prepare the Marinade:
    • In a bowl, combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, and brown sugar (if using). Whisk the ingredients together until well combined.
  2. Marinate the Steak:
    • Place your steak cuts (such as flank steak, skirt steak, or round steak) in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag.
    • Pour the marinade over the steak, ensuring it is evenly coated. Massage the marinade into the meat gently.
    • Seal the dish or bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat. For tougher cuts, you can marinate for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Tenderize the Steak:
    • After marinating, remove the steak from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for about 15-30 minutes before cooking.
    • Preheat your grill, skillet, or broiler to medium-high heat.
  4. Cook the Steak:
    • Depending on your preferred cooking method, grill the steak for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare doneness, adjusting the time based on the thickness of the steak and your desired level of doneness.
    • Alternatively, you can sear the steak in a hot skillet with a little oil, cooking each side until browned and cooked to your liking.
    • If using a broiler, place the steak on a broiler pan and broil for a few minutes per side, watching closely to prevent burning.
  5. Rest and Slice:
    • Once cooked to your desired doneness, transfer the steak to a cutting board and let it rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.
    • Slice the steak against the grain into thin strips for optimal tenderness.
