Grilled Marinated Ribeyes

These juicy steaks are a favorite meal of ours when we go camping. Let them sit in tangy, barbecue-inspired marinade overnight and you've got a rich and hearty dinner ready to grill up the next day. —Louise Graybiel, Toronto, Ontario
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons steak seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 beef ribeye steaks (8 ounces each)


  • In a large resealable plastic bag, mix first nine ingredients. Add steaks; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  • Drain steaks, discarding marinade. Grill steaks, covered, over medium heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°), 5-7 minutes per side.
    Freeze option: Freeze steaks with marinade in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, thaw in refrigerator overnight. Drain beef, discarding marinade. Grill as directed.
Health Tip: Ribeyes are a favorite choice for grilling, but leaner cuts work with this marinade, too. Think top sirloin, top loin (aka strip), flank and top blade (aka flat iron) steaks.

    I have a question about this recipe. When it lists "2 Tbs steak sauce" in the ingredients, does that mean like Heinz 57, or A1 Steak Sauce? One is more of a red based sauce, A1 is more of a Worcestershire based sauce. What did the rest of you use? Thanks.

    We used with Ny Strip Streaks, phenomenal marinade that I’m sure we will be going back to again and again!

    Used this recipe to marinate NY strip steaks to take on our camping trip. Used the tip of marinating the steaks and then freezing them. This helped keep the steaks fresh in the cooler until we were ready to use two days later, all the while infusing the wonderful flavor of this marinade into the meat. My family RAVED over the taste of the steaks. It has become a favorite, and my sons all wanted the recipe. Marinating the meat for at least 24 hours will give the best flavor.

    Very flavorful. Wasn't sure about BBQ sauce and steak but this marinade was amazing. I used McCormick's Montreal seasoning for the steak seasoning.

    AWESOME - even tho I messed up a bit. I put 2 Tblsp of the McCormick's Montreal when I read the 2 Tblsp of Steak Sauce (I didn't have any Steak Sauce) then I just figured it had enuf steak seasoning and omitted the 2 tsps of steak seasoning. Will definitely do this again - RIGHT next time. But it wasn't bad even with the mess up. Husband really liked it too. Thank you Ontario!

    AMAZING! Made it exact, marinated Ribeye's which are our favorites. Normally never use anything when cook them, love them just grilled. But this marinade is now a family favorite! Thank you Louise!
