Here's my favorite, which I make with both beef steak & lamb chops - sometimes even tuna steaks** as well. Since it's marinated, I tend to use cheaper steak cuts, like chuck &/or strip.
First, meat is marinated in my own marinade:
BREEZY 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 MARINADE
In a plastic ziplock bag, bowl, or dish large enough to hold the meat & marinade, combine:
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of dry sherry
3 tablespoons of oil (any type of your choosing)
4 garlic cloves, peeled, smashed, & roughly chopped
Add meat & marinate for a minimum of one hour to overnight. Grill, broil, or pan sauté meat as desired.
I then pop the meat into a preheated cast-iron pan or cast-iron (ridged) grill pan & cook to desired doneness. Remove the meat & toss whatever marinade is left over - including the garlic cloves - into the hot pan to heat/steam thru, & then pour that over the meat.
**If using this marinade for tuna, don't marinate for more than 1 hour or your fish will not only taste of nothing but the marinade, but will also turn to mush.
