A mild marinade prepared with lemon juice, thyme and oregano seasons this steak from Sue Ross of Casa Grande, Arizona. It feeds a family of four with lots left over to enjoy in satisfying second-day dishes later in the week.
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + marinating Broil: 15 min.

- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper

- With a meat fork, pierce holes in both sides of steaks. Place in a shallow dish. Add the onion, lemon juice, oil, garlic salt, thyme, oregano, celery salt and pepper. Turn to coat; cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
