Grilled Marinated Ribeyes Recipe

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. YIELD: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)


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, mix first nine ingredients. Add steaks; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  • 2. 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. Yield: 4 servings.

Recipe Note

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.

"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!"

"Just made this...followed recipe as is....It turned out wonderful!

Marinated ribeye for about 6 hours....
Keep an eye on the grill when covered. Even at a lower temp. It can flare up."

"This marinade is AWESOME!! I now keep the ingred. on hand so that I can always make this. Because we don't like spicy/hot food, I did omit the hot sauce. I also LOVE this for my country style pork ribs. I like this recipe better on the ribs than the steak but both are AWESOME! I will say, if you're making this, to make sure you use your fav. b-que sauce because that's what really makes this marinade. When I use this for the ribs, I make sure that they marinate in the fridge for a min of 2-4 hrs & I also increase the b-que sauce to a cup. Just because we're using it for ribs. Usually you have to boil the ribs to get them tender but you don't have to do that w/this marinade. My ribs literally fell apart/off the bone they were so tender! My kids now beg me to make this w/the ribs. I haven't tried this w/c-ken yet but I bet it would be really good too. This is a really versatile marinade. It's so good that I tell people it's my "Secret" marinade that took me months to come up with. LOL! If they only knew how I really got it."

"If you have a four burner grill, turn all four burners on high. When heated, turn off the center burners and grill the steaks over the center with the lid closed."
