How to Marinate Ribeye Steak  

This ribeye marinade has a bit more than a few ingredients, but we are sure that you already have them in your pantry. And if you don’t, you can easily find them in your local supermarket.   

You’ll need garlic cloves, onion powder, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, ginger powder, freshly ground black pepper, and honey. And, of course, some quality ribeye steak.   

When it comes to the question of how long can I marinate steak, we recommend you to do it in advance, preferably one or two days prior. If you don’t remember to do it in advance, overnight is still okay.  

You’ll want to mix all ingredients in an airtight container and add the steaks to it. You should keep them in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook them. And when the time comes, please don’t throw out the rest of the ribeye marinade; use it to make a tasty gravy for the steaks.
