Herb-Marinated Steak

Herb marinades are a game-changer for steak lovers! Infusing steak with a blend of fragrant herbs adds a rich depth of flavor. The marinade’s acidity helps tenderize the steak, making it juicy and succulent. Pick up a variety of fresh herbs here at Back Home on the Farm. 

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 3 scallions thinly sliced
  • tablespoons fresh thyme
  • tablespoons fresh mint
  • cloves garlic
  • jalapeno seeded and sliced
  • 2 ½ teaspoons salt
  • lemon lemon zest
  • ½ lemon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2½ lbs steaks

To make: 

Combine all ingredients except the steaks and place them in a food processor, then pulse until a paste forms.

Pat the meat dry and place it in a shallow baking dish or a freezer bag. Cover the meat with the marinade and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

When ready to cook, heat the grill to high. Use a paper towel to pat the meat dry, leaving on as much paste as possible. Grill over direct heat or under the broiler until browned on both sides, about 3-6 minutes per side if 1 to 11/4 inches thick and 6-9 minutes if 2 inches thick. Let rest for 5-10 minutes.
