Marinade for Steak

This is a staple here in the summer! It gets raves whenever we make it for guests 🙂

This is scaled for 8 steaks, so play with the proportions if you’re making less.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup soya sauce
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (just don’t ask me to pronounce it)

1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
