3. Choose Your Marinade - Next you will need to choose a marinade for your steaks. Italian dressing and Worcestershire sauce can be great. KC Masterpiece and Lawry's also make some great marinades for steaks. Adding something acidic like lemon juice to your recipe will help make your steaks even more tender.

4. Add Your Marinade - Put your steaks in a freezer bag or container. If in a container, coat them with the marinade and flip them around a few times to make sure they are properly coated. If you put them in a freezer bag, just pour in the marinade, seal the bag, and shake it around to fully coat the steaks.

5. Refrigerate - Next you will need to refrigerate your steaks anywhere from 2 hours to 24 hours. The longer the better, just don't exceed 24 hours as the steaks will start to get mushy after that.

6. Grill - After you have properly marinated your steaks you can fire up the grill and get started!
