Meat eater

I never craved red meat while living in the states but as soon as we moved to the land where beef is immensely expensive, I started to crave it more and more. You know it's expensive when you feel guilty eating it alone. Since being home from our vacation in the States we've been craving it more than usual. So what's the only logical solution? Driving to Cost-c0 (thank God for Cost-co in Korea) and picking up some steak. I've always used store bought marinade but decided to try to make one from scratch (how hard could it be right?). I googled steak marinade and "The best steak marinade in existence" popped up on allrecipes. It was a sign for sure.

What you need, minus the garlic powder
Yum! I've never been so excited for steak before.

What you need
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons dried basil
1 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 teaspoon dried minced garlic (optional)

What you do
.Put all ingredients except the optional minced garlic in a blender and blend on high speed for 30 seconds until thoroughly mixed.
.Pour marinade over desired type of meat. Cover, and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Cook meat as desired.
