Recipe of the week -- Hobo Marinated Steak

Do you have a go-to summer recipe? One that you run for when company's coming or maybe just because it's really good?

This is mine. We can eat this as much as once a week in the summer and it always gets rave reviews when served to company.

This recipe has been in the family for forever it seems like, but I think it was actually my mom that made this up by modifying another recipe when I was little.

Hobo Marinated Steak
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. black pepper
4 boneless steaks (we have used round steak, cubed steak and sirloin...whatever happens to be in the freezer)

Mix the ketchup, soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, garlic and pepper in a large resealable ziploc bag. Shake to mix well. Add steaks. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Grill as desired.

If you have leftovers (we rarely do), they are good sliced up in stir-fry or salads.

  1. this looks delish, and so easy to make (bonus) I love firing up the grill in the summer and trying new dishes, so this may get added to the list. Happy first day of summer!

  2. interesting. It sounds delicious.
    I've never actually used ketchup in a marinade.

    We LOVE to grill and marinate. I'm so glad you linked this up, it sounds zingy and yummy

  3. I don't care for ketchup on its own, but I always like it in recipes. This looks like a good one.

  4. The sounds simple and yummy! I know my dd would love it for the name along! She's really into the Kit American Girl movie/stories right now and makes little hobo signs in the dirt everywhere she goes. Hobo steak would be right up her alley! :) Thanks for sharing! Now following from TMTT.

  5. That sound yummy! I think I'll give that a try. I've been looking for a new grill recipe as I'm trying my best not to heat up my kitchen.

  6. That sounds delicious! :)
