Using marinades to soften tough steak cuts

If your family love steaks but you find that they are just too expensive to fit within your budget, consider purchasing some of the tougher steak cuts while they are on sale, and surprise your family with steak dinner.

one thing many do not realize is that even the toughest cuts of beef can be made tender and juicy simply by marinating them. And the trick is to not just marinate them for an hour or two before grilling, but to marinate them overnight. When you marinate them overnight, the marinade can do its work and turn your tough steak into a great one.

You do not have to buy the expensive jarred or packet mixes of marinade to make it tender. There are plenty of easy to make marinade recipes you can find online and nearly all of them will have ingredients that you already have in your cupboard. the trick is ensuring that the marinade has vinegar or wine in it, because it is the acidic and citrus marinade ingredients there really do the tenderizing.

So next time you spot a good deal on a tough steak cut, surprise your family with the marinated steak dinner. You can easily began marinating the steaks the night before, getting them ready after your family has gone to bed, so will be a true surprise when you pull them out of the fridge to pop them on the grill.
