This is my go to marinade for steaks. It can be reduced for a sauce if desired or discarded after the meat is grilled. This is enough to season two 1 1/2″ thick steaks.
Red Wine Marinade
- 1 cup good dry red wine
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 1/8 cup hot sauce
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 basil leaves torn by hand and quickly crushed
- 1 ground star anise
Mix everything in a storage container. Season steaks with salt and pepper and submerge in marinade. Flip every four hours and marinade at least eight hours.
