Paleo Melt In Your Mouth Marinated Steaks


2-4 12 ounce New York Steaks or whatever steaks you prefer, well marbled.

1/2 cup ghee or butter

1/4 cup homemade Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup homemade Barbecue Sauce

2 big cloves of garlic or 3 small ones

1 onion

2 tbsp homemade steak seasoning spice

1 tsp pepper

coconut oil or ghee  for searing

Sea Salt to coat steaks


1. In a food processor mix all ingredients except coconut oil and the 1/2 cup of ghee/butter, and the steaks of course! Puree till smooth.

2. Place Steaks in a shallow glass dish and coat both sides with salt and pour marinade over steaks turning them over to coat both sides. Let marinate 24 hours cover in the fridge, turning them 2-3 times while they marinate.

3. Once steaks are done marinating, preheat your oven to 450 F. on roast or if you don't have a roast feature then regular is fine. Now heat a large skillet on high heat and add oil or ghee, enough to coat the pan. Let it get hot and had the steaks, use a oven proof pan if possible, if you don't have one then just transfer the steaks and their juices to a baking dish. Let steaks sear on one side for 90 seconds then flip and let sear another 90 seconds. Don't Skip This Step! This locks in the juices and this is the secret that restaurants use to get a melt in your mouth tender steak. This and roasting in the oven vs. grilling!

4. Once steaks have finished searing, pour on your 1/2 cup of ghee or butter, really makes them juicier and tastier, and move the pan to the oven uncovered and roast/bake for about 15 minutes. I like to take some of the marinade sauce and put it over the steaks before roasting them!

Now enjoy a juicy tender steak topped with caramelized onions, so tender you can cut it with a fork! Add a side of Mashed Rutabaga and you have yourself a steak and Faux potato dinner!
