A Delicious Method to Prepare Cheap Beef Steak

A Delicious Method to Prepare Cheap Beef Steak

This recipe will help you get rid of the peculiar odor, hardness, and dryness of cheap steak meat. Not only does this secret technique result in tender steak, but it also cuts down on the odor! This is a simple and reliable trick in preparing delicious steak.

Ingredients: 2 steaks

Steak meat
2 slices
Grapeseed oil
4 tablespoons
※ Red wine-soy sauce
50 ml
Resealable plastic bag
1 bag
As a substitute to the ※ produce above, use the following:
●Store-bought steak sauce
(Soy-sauce flavored) 40 ml
●Red wine
10 ml


1. Remove the sinews from the steak, and pound with a meat tenderizer. Place the meat in a resealable plastic bag, pour in the grape seed oil, and thoroughly rub in. Next, add red wine soy sauce (add ● if unavailable), rub it in again, and let sit in the fridge for 4-5 hours.
2. Heat a frying pan (Japanese beef fat is best), add grape seed oil, cook the meat from Step 1, and it's done (there's no need to pat dry the surface before cooking in the frying pan). Drizzle the red wine soy sauce on top and enjoy.
3. This is the red wine soy sauce I used. If you can't find this, then mix soy sauce-flavored store-bought steak sauce to cheap red wine. I use a 4:1 ratio of red wine to soy sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was trying to find a way to prepare cheap beef, so I spent my days experimenting. If you marinate the meat in yogurt, the odor will dissipate, but the flavor weakens. Marinating in grated fruit reduces the smell but imparts a strange taste. Since the cut of meat is lean, I thought of marinating it in oil, but soaking it in olive oil resulted in a funky smell. Vegetable oil was out of the question. What about corn oil? Through trial and error, I finally settled on this recipe. I wonder how much strangely seasoned meat I ate in the process.
