My meat is boring.
I use salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Sometimes I will get a little funky with it and add chili powder. But really, I am in a bit of a rut and my meat is boring.
I wanted to bring flavour back to my meat and use a bbq sauce or a marinade. But I had one substantial challenge – most dinner recipes and store bought sauces and marinades include sugar.
I work hard to be processed sugar free, so this was a problem.
My solution, make up my own recipe.
And here it is! A sweet and savoury korean-inspired marinade that is both processed sugar free and not boring!
I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did.
Sugar Free Korean Steak Marinade
4 Steaks (the cut/type is your choice)
½ cup raw honey
½ cup soya sauce (gluten free if preferred)
¼ cup white wine vinegar
4 tbsp garlic, minced
¾ tbsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
4 green onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoon rice flour or cornstarch
- Melt honey, mix with soya sauce and white wine vinegar
- Mix the salt and pepper together in a small bowl and rub on the steak. You do not need to use all of it, or you can use more if you prefer.
- Rub garlic on both sides of the steak
- Place the steaks in a bowl and pour the marinade over them. Let sit for at least two hours.
- Grill the steak to desired level
- Make a marinade gravy: Melt the butter in a sauce pan, slowly add the rice flour/cornstarch and stir until thicker, but not lumpy. Add the marinade and bring to a soft boil.
- Place the steak on a plate, pour the gravy over the steak and add the green onion as garnish. Serve with rice and sautéed green beans.
