The Best Gluten-Free Steak Marinade

Juicy steaks are a delicious part of the summer grilling season. No matter what cut of steak you enjoy or use, you want the a tender, steak house quality steak at home. That’s where our recipe for the best gluten-free steak marinade recipe comes in handy.

Why you can’t just buy any old marinade for your steaks? It is because many marinades contain ingredients with hidden gluten in them, like Worcestershire and soy sauce. When you buy a marinade, salad dressing, or any prepared sauce, you need to read every ingredient to ensure it is truly gluten-free. So be on the lookout for these ingredients and not just labels that say, “may contain gluten” as that generally means there is a chance of cross contamination. Some who are gluten sensitive can handle cross-contamination, while others can’t. When you commit to living gluten-free, you learn to read all labels.  By making your own marinade you can be certain that each ingredient you use is, in fact, gluten-free.

Our best gluten-free steak marinade, is based on the Broil King The Perfect Steak recipe. The two main differences are ensuring that you are using gluten-free products and we use dry mustard in place of Dijon mustard. I believe the dry mustard mixes into the marinade better, as it doesn’t add graininess to the texture, and it’s an easier product to keep in your pantry. Having dry mustard in your cupboard is handier than you might think.

Tip: Add a 1/2 tsp of dry mustard to up the flavour of any Mac and cheese sauce you might make. It adds a subtle depth, that you didn’t know you were missing.

The Best Gluten-Free Steak Marinade

Ingredients:

  • 4 steaks
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dry Mustard
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce- I like to use VH Low Sodium Soy sauce, which is gluten-free.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tsp Freshly ground pepper

Directions:

  • In a large Ziplock freezer bag mix garlic, Worcestershire, balsamic, mustard, soy, olive oil, and pepper.
  • Close the bag and really shake it up.

  • Turn and shake the bag often to make sure steaks are well coated, no matter how you’ve marinated them- room temperature or in the fridge.
  • Once your grill is hot, oil the grill and cook to desired temperature.
