The Easiest Grilled Steak Marinade

Florentine-style Steak for the Summer Grilling Season

There’s just something about sitting down to a rustic, hearty meal that highlights a slab of perfectly cooked steak. And while most of us can’t begin to afford the beef from the ancient breed of Tuscan cattle, called the Chianina (a breed of cattle known for its incredibly flavorful meat). It’s easy to prepare locally sourced cuts of steak in the Tuscan way with this easy-to-make steak marinade. So as the saying goes, When in Rome…

About the Dish...

Everything about this marinade and dish highlights Tuscan cooking, from its overall simplicity to its use of quality ingredients and the steak’s marinating to highlight the meat’s flavor. Finally, the steak is seasoned just with salt and pepper before grilling – nothing too extravagant here.

We’re using a moderately thick ribeye steak cut that’s locally sourced, but you could also use New York Strip, Porterhouse, or T-bone steaks, which can be found at your local grocery store or market.

How to Make Florentine Balsamic and Rosemary Grilled Steak

  1. Combine

    the olive oil, balsamic, rosemary, and lemon zest in a heavy plastic zipper bag. Zip the bag closed and shake to combine. Open the bag to add the steak, re-seal, and refrigerate for 5-8 hours (or overnight), turning the bag several times.

  2. About 20 minutes before grilling,

    remove the steak from the refrigerator and let it sit in the bag to warm to room temperature. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high heat.

  3. To cook,

    remove the steak from the marinade and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Place the steaks on the grill over moderately high heat until golden brown and slightly charred, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare (divide the time accordingly when using the flip and turn method to achieve perfect grill marks). For a medium-rare steak, the internal temperature should register about 5-degrees less than your desired doneness temperature or 130° using an instant-read thermometer. [1] Don’t worry; the meat will continue to cook rising to the perfect doneness when tented in the next step.
  4. Transfer

    the steak to a rimmed cutting board or plate, tent loosely with foil, and let rest 5-7 minutes before serving.
  5. To serve,

    slice the steak across the grain to divide or plate the entire generous portion.

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
