You Need This Keto Steak Marinade in Your Life!

There is something about spring and summer weekends, that always puts me in the mood for a steak.

Maybe it is because since we can grill out, hubby takes over the cooking.

Or maybe it is because there is so much less clean-up when the cooking is done outdoors. Just fun casual family time with minimal mess.

Whatever it is, at this time of year beef makes a regular appearing on our weekend table.

Sometimes I keep things super-simple and just season everything while I am letting the meat temper. But sometimes I like to get all fancy and make this Keto Steak Marinade.

Of course, it isn’t really fancy. In fact, it takes all of five minutes to throw together. But the family doesn’t know that, and they are always so appreciative of the little extra effort that I’ve put in.

The only real challenge I have with this is that when you make a favorite food taste even better and you have two teenage boys, it tends to disappear a little too quickly!

Give this recipe a try and I know you’ll be reaching for it throughout the spring and summer. Happy grilling!
