Steak recipes are extremely popular and there are many ways in which you can grill a steak. A steak should be flavorful, juicy and moist. Many people don't know the correct way of grilling a steak and end up overcooking it. An overcooked steak is dry and rubbery. To ensure that your steak is moist and flavorful, you need to marinade it beforehand.
A marinade generally consists of an acidic component like vinegar or lemon juice along with oil and various herbs and spices. Steak is usually soaked in a marinade for two to three hours or even overnight. This helps the marinade to infuse the steak and when you grill it, you get an incredibly good flavor along with a juicy texture.
