Best Grilled Margarita Steak

Margarita Steak

The marinade uses savory and sweet ingredients for even more diverse and rich flavor. I usually marinate the steaks for 4 hours, but I think 2 hours should be enough to tenderize the meat. Of course, you can marinate them overnight. Be sure to pat the steaks dry before you cook them to get a nice sauce on top.

I usually cook my steaks on a grill but you can use a grill pan. The steaks are always unbelievable. I just love the juicy meat taste with the rich sauce and a very light salad. Margarita is the best for me, so I really urge you to try this recipe and share your opinion.

Best Grilled Margarita Steak

These margarita steaks are very easy to make and they taste amazing. With very tender top sirloin, you don't have to marinate them to make the meat tender. Just let them sit in the fridge long enough to impart the flavors of the marinade. Serve over rice or roasted vegetables.
