Sumptuous Thai-style steak marinade

Want to know a simple trick to elevate your humble hunk of steak to stellar heights? Fish sauce, along with fresh garlic and ginger, is an easy way to add an umami depth of flavour to your next steak dish – whether a straightforward meal of steak and veggies or perhaps a beef salad. Once you try a simple marinade like this, you may never go back to plain, undressed steak again.

Some other marinades I’m keen to try soon are the coffee marinade from The Food Lovers Primal Palate and similarly, their chimichurri marinade. Fun times.

Fish sauce steak marinade

  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger root, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce

Marinade for 3-6 hours in the fridge before cooking. Ensure meat is brought to room temperature before cooking. For an even better taste, consider using a cast iron grill or the great Aussie barbie.

* Enough for 4 medium size steaks
