Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner and is considered the kick-off to the summer grilling season and we’ve got a heck of a recipe for a steak rub and marinade. Not only is this recipe flavorful but this marinade and rub is easy and works on all cuts of steak. 

Grilled Steak Marinade:

Ingredients—

3 minced shallots

1 tablespoon soy sauce 

2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil 

2 teaspoons of freshly chopped basil

Dry Steak Rub:

1-2 tablespoons of black peppercorn 

1 teaspoon of cloves 

2 tablespoons sesame seeds
