Simple Steak Marinade Packed With Flavor

My husband is a meat man.  Rarely is a meal served in our house without meat being a main ingredient.  I will admit though that sometimes this can be tough.  I am always on the hunt for new recipes that make the meat the star of the meal but isn’t always the same old thing.  

Steak Marinade Recipe


Recently I came across Dale Sauce in the ketchup aisle and our family has taken a liking to it.  I do want to make a note that you need to look for the low sodium version of Dale Sauce.  Dale Sauce makes for a simple marinade with the addition of water to stretch the marinade and cut the salt a little bit more.  Dale Sauce makes for a good marinade from a bottle so that I don’t have to keep a lot of ingredients on hand.  If I am in a hurry for dinner I will marinate the steak in the Dale Sauce for only about 10 minutes but leave out the water.

    I love the addition of the cherry/grape tomatoes. I’ve never tried this brand before, I will most definitely have to check it out.

  • Ann Marie DelFavero

    That looks SO yummy!!! I’ve never heard of Dale Sauce before, I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled next time I’m at the store.

  • Jenna Wood

    I’ve never heard of Dale sauce before but I love that there is a low sodium version. I always marinate my meats, so thi would be a nice change of pace.

  • Shelley Zurek

    I am curious what part of the country do you live in and why is it called DALE sauce?

    • Brandy

      Shelley I live in Colorado and the brand name is Dale sauce. You can find it in the ketchup aisle but look for the low sodium one as it can be rather salty.

  • Patty

    I have never heard of Dale Sauce. I will have to keep an eye out for it the next time I shop. We don’t eat a lot of beef but we do eat a lot of goat and venison.

    • Brandy

      I don’t eat either of those so I can’t say how Dale sauce would be on either of those. Are they similar to beef? Dale’s also offers one that is made for chicken so perhaps one of those could be used.
