If you like your food hot, this spicy steak marinade will suit your adventurous taste buds perfectly. With cayenne pepper, cumin, green onions, and jalapeño boosting the spice level and flavor factor, this is certainly a delicious steak marinade recipe and any spice fans will find the experience of eating this spicy steak something to remember, because it really does have a special taste.
This marinade is simple to prepare. It is full-flavored too, which always works nicely with steaks. Although ingredients like fish normally require subtle seasonings such as fresh herbs and citrus, steak is a bold-tasting red meat so it can easily handle vibrant marinade ingredients which will bring out its natural flavor without overwhelming it.
This tasty marinade is nice if you serve the steak with something that has a contrastingly light flavor such as boiled rice or mashed potatoes. Try a baked potato with sour cream or even some mild homemade salsa with tortillas and sour cream, for the contrast. If you really like fiery food, you can use extra jalapeño or some hot sauce in this spicy steak marinade but you might like to try the original recipe first because it is pretty hot already.
3 boneless rib steaks, 20 oz each, trimmed of outer fat
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 green onions, sliced
1 jalapeño, seeded and sliced
½ cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
Combine the lemon juice, cumin, soy sauce, green onions, oil, cayenne, garlic, pepper, and jalapeño in a glass bowl.
Add the steaks, cover, and marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator or 30 minutes at room temperature.
Turn the meat once or twice and, if refrigerated, allow to return to room temperature before grilling.
Prepare a grill to hot and spray the grill rack with the cooking spray while it is still warming up.
Discard the steak marinade and grill the steak, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes.
Turn and grill, covered, for another 10 to 12 minutes for medium rare.
Let the meat rest for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cutting board and carve.
Serve the finished steak with tender bell pepper, asparagus and red onion strips like you can see in this shot, or with your favorite side dishes. This succulent piece of meat has a unique flavor and you will love how the spiciness enhances the meaty flavor instead of overwhelming it. This marinade might just become one of your favorites. If you like the sound of this one but are not such a fan of spicy food, then just tone it down a bit by adjusting the amount of cayenne and jalapeño you use, and then you can get it just right for your
