These grilled or broiled garlic rib steaks are marinated in a mixture of garlic, soy sauce, and seasonings. Use this marinade with rib steaks, strips steaks, porterhouse or t-bone, or flank steaks.

It's a very simple marinade to prepare but plan to start at least 2 hours before you plan to cook so the steaks will have time to marinate. 

For best results, check steaks with an instant-read thermometer. See the chart below the instructions for steak temperatures (rare, medium, well-done, etc.).

The recipe is easily scaled down for two people or up for a larger family or dinner party.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 4 rib eye steaks, about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in thickness

How to Make It

  1. In a large nonreactive baking dish or container, combine the soy sauce, garlic, mustard, and the coarsely ground black pepper. Add the steaks to the marinade and turn them to coat thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 5 hours.
  2. Oil the grill and prepare it for high direct heat, or about 450° F. 
  3. Grill the steaks until the desired temperature and doneness has been reached. Use tongs to turn the steaks and try to limit turning to only once.
