  • PREP

    15 mins
  • COOK

    20 mins

    5 hrs 35 mins


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the orange juice, salad dressing, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, and garlic. Squeeze the bag to mix well. You should have a nice brown marinade. Place steaks into the bag with the marinade, and seal. Refrigerate for 2 to 5 hours, turning over occasionally.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. When the grill is hot, lightly oil the grate.
  3. Place steaks onto the grill and season the tops with salt and pepper to taste. Baste with marinade. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, then flip over and salt, pepper and baste again. Grill for about 7 or 8 more minutes, or to desired doneness. Do not flip the steaks again. The internal temperature should be at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Let steaks stand for 5 minutes before cutting, to prevent juices from running out.
  4. Heat the remaining marinade to a boil in a small saucepan. Use as steak sauce.

pretty good...maybe a bit sweet. I didn't cook it quite to 145; i prefer my (good) beef mid rare (130-139) Just for general info, rare is 120-129, med. rare 130-139, med. 140-149, med. well 150-159, and well 160-169. These are industry standards, and used by most restaurants:)

It was an ok recipe, but dont spend a lot on a good steak cause it ruins the true taste of the meat. Too sweet.

Willy's steak was horrible.

This is a really good marinade. I used New York strip steaks instead of Rib-eyes and they were really tender and juicy. The vinegar based hot sauce leaves you a lot of room for personal preference as I found many sauces at the store with varying degrees of hotness. I used a State Fair Salamida Spiedie Sauce. I also had to use 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce because I only had 1/2 cup worcestershire sauce. This one is definitely worth repeating!!!!!!

I'm not a big steak person, but i loved this recipe, my husband and son (2 years) loved it. thanks so much for making steak taste so tender and delicious!!

I tried this with a T-bone steak and was not as good as I thought it would be. There are way better marinades on this site than this weak recipe.

Absolutely incredible flavor. The steak was juicy and tender--it was the first time I didn't use steak sauce! Definately try this one!

a great way to marinade steaks. when you tell people what you did to the steaks before you cook them they roll their eyes but the proof is in a great taste.
