It’s official. The sun forgot where Germany is. It’s been one week since we put up our giant trampoline and we were only able to use it one day. And it wasn’t even that nice of a day- the sun was splintering through the clouds, but we were all still decked out in sweatpants and hoodies. Isn’t it almost June? The rain and the clouds are killing me. I don’t know if I’d make it in Seattle.
There was one day in particular where is was just cats-and-dogs-pouring. That was the day my daughter insisted beyond anything else that she must go on the trampoline. She whined and cried at the glass french doors in the back long enough that I finally gave in, “You want to jump on the trampoline? Go ahead!” I opened the doors up and she walked right out into a down pour. I expected her to freak out and come right back in. Nope. She kept going right to the trampoline like there was no rain! Then it happened- it was on the second rung of the ladder up the trampoline- she started screaming. Like all of a sudden she realized she was soaked in the sky was showering her with water. And wouldn’t you know, as soon as we got her back inside she turned around and said, “I want to go on the trampoline.” Lesson not learned. Haha kids are too silly.

Step that steak up a few notches with an excellent marinade. Maybe something special for Father’s Day.
The inspiration is a very common recipe around the internet on blogs and recipe sites. The original (I think) is known as “Best Steak Marinade in Existence” on Allrecipes.com. Only a few changes to simplify and some rounding for a smaller (Cooking For Two) amount. Plus I didn’t bother with running though a blender.
I generally buy very good beef so a marinade just seems wrong on a filet
or porterhouse. Just some salt, pepper and a little garlic please. Strip steaks have just not been our favorites over the
years but the best looking steaks at the market were the strips. I had
Simple Steak Marinade by Chris at Nibble Me This and a marinade seem great but I’m not a “beer person” so Google was my friend again. If your a beer person, check out Chris’ post.
A 5 minus. I don’t frequently marinade steak but this is good enough to start doing it a lot more. My wife felt it was the best strip steak she has had in years.
Notes:Run though a blender if you want but it doesn’t seem necessary to me. Use black pepper if you don’t have white. Add a pinch of crushed red pepper or a hot or pepper sauce if you want.
In a 1 gallon zip lock bag combine: 3 T soy sauce, 4 T olive oil, 3 T lemon juice, 2 T Worcestershire sauce, 2 t garlic powder, 1 1/2 T dry basil, 2 t dry parsley flakes and 1/2 t white pepper.
Trim your steaks of extra fat. Here are two strip steaks about 12 oz each. (I do not want to hear about not doing this to a strip steak)
Add the steaks to the bag, squeeze out the air and mush the steaks around to get them coated well. Refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours. Longer should be fine.
Remove from the marinade and discard the marinade. Grill as usual. Here I’m grilled over high heat for about 15 minutes total.
Allow to rest for 5 minutes or so before cutting.
