There aren't too many grilling weekends left this year! If you happen to get our newsletter, then you've been enjoying this recipe for 6 weeks already! If not, well... better late than never. Savory BBQ and umami flavors infused in your favorite steaks. This tasty marinade is gluten-free, paleo and great on all types of steak. You will need to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes. Pro Tip: The fattier or more grisly the steak, the longer you should marinate it. The acids in the marinade will help breakdown those tough connective tissues.

  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Aminos or Worcesterschire Sauce
  • 3 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon Liquid Smoke

  • Dip your steaks on both sides, then place in a pan or a ziploc bag.
  • Pour over the remaining marinade. Seal the ziploc bag or cover your pan with plastic wrap. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight. Be sure to flip your steaks once during the marinating time.


"Cook" time in this recipe, actually refers to resting time. Steaks can be grilled, baked or pan fried right out of the marinade with no additional oil needed. Discard any excess marinade.
