Cooking Time

  • Grill: 10-15 minutes
  • Pan-sear: 10-15 minutes


  • 4 steaks (your preferred cut)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Optional: chopped parsley for garnish


In a bowl, combine olive oil, half of the minced garlic, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, salt, and black pepper.

Place the steaks in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag, and pour the marinade over them. Ensure the steaks are evenly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour if time allows.

Preheat your grill or skillet to medium-high heat.

Remove the steaks from the marinade and discard any excess marinade.

Cook the steaks according to your preferred method and desired level of doneness, approximately 5-7 minutes per side for medium-rare.

While the steaks are cooking, prepare the garlic sauce. In a small saucepan, heat the remaining minced garlic with a tablespoon of olive oil until fragrant and golden brown.

Once the steaks are cooked to your liking, transfer them to a serving platter and drizzle with the garlic sauce. Garnish with chopped parsley if desired.

Serve the garlic steak with garlic hot, alongside your favorite sides.
