Pepper Steak Marinade with Garlic and Lemon
The pepper in this pepper steak marinade is joined by lemon, garlic, onion, soy sauce and more for a tasty sauce with a wonderfully tangy accent. Pepper steak is a favorite for many people and pepper works nicely in many of our easy steak marinades. Before you cook your steak, you can roll it in crushed peppercorns so the outside is encrusted. This is optional but it does give a nice result, both in terms of appearance and flavor.
You can use any kind of meat tenderizer in this recipe, or even papaya powder if you have it, a natural meat tenderizer which will also impart a subtle tropical flavor to the steak. Not every marinade requires a tenderizer although if you are working with tough steaks it is usually a good idea to add an acidic ingredient to the recipe.
The other ingredients in this steak marinade all help to add plenty of flavor to the steak and tenderize it. This steak marinade recipe makes a versatile meal and you can serve the steak over rice, with garlic mashed potatoes or with French fries for an indulgent tasting dinner which is actually very healthy because this marinade is low in fat and you are using lean meat too.
