Course 3: Sake and Soy Marinated Rib-eyes

>> Thursday, February 12, 2009

So for the third course I was thinking that nothing says “Be My Valentine” than a nice thick, big hunk of meat (rib-eye that is). This is a great marinade courtsey of the “real Frugal Foodie” Jef. Like the butternut squash raviolis this can be made ahead of time and needs to marinate about 24 hours before you intend to cook (ok not really 24 hours, but the longer the better, I would minimum of 2 hours).

It’s so easy, only 5 ingredients (including the steak) and I promise, you and your valentine will both love it.


  • Soy Sauce
  • Sake
  • Orange Juice
  • Minced Garlic
  • 2 Ribeyes (make sure they are good and marbleized)


Basically all you want to do is combine equal parts soy sauce, sake and orange juice and pour over steaks (generally for two steaks I would do a ¼ cup of each, which seems like a lot but whatever). You can do this in a large plastic bag or Tupperware.

Then toss in about a tablespoon of minced garlic and let that mixture soak on the steaks for 24 hours. Be sure to flip several times in between.

Then once the 24 hours are up, I say fire up the grill or grill pan and cook till desire temperature. I think any steak above medium is a crime, but cook it however you like.

If you aren’t sure how to long to cook you steak, click here for a chart that will explain everything.

Now as for sides, I think something simple that can be done while the steaks are cooking is best; something like Rosemary Roasted Potatoes.

The potatoes take about 30 minutes start to end so plan out your timing accordingly.
