Southeast Asian Marinade for Steaks
Why This Recipe Works
We started with soy sauce to develop a steak marinade recipe that worked. The salt in soy sauce acts much like a brine, helping the meat retain moisture during cooking and making it more tender. But to add more depth of flavor, we needed additional seasonings. We found them in the international section of the supermarket, with ingredients as diverse as red curry paste, Dijon mustard, and chipotle chiles.
