Marinated Steak

This is a family favorite for holidays. We buy about a 1 inch thick steak and slice it in thin, wide pieces.


  • Sirloin steak (although any steak will do)
  • 2-5 garlic cloves
  • 1 Lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Oregano
  • Pepper
  • Salt


  • Place the steak in a oval pan (only used for marinating, not cooking)
  • Squeeze all the juice out of 1 lemon into a cup
  • Chop 2-3 garlic cloves (the more the better)
  • Add oregano, olive oil, black pepper and the chopped garlic in the cup
  • Stir the marinate sauce well
  • Pour the marinate sauce on one side of the steak, flip it, and pour again
  • Put the steak in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours but no more than 24
  • Before you plan to cook leave the steak out for an hour
  • Once ready add a little salt to the steak
  • Place a small piece of butter on the grill pan
  • Cook each side of the steak for about 6 minutes at medium-high, maybe longer depending on the thickness of the meat
