One of the best marinades you can buy is Italian Dressing. The combination of oil and vinegar with the herbs and spices makes it flavorful and a powerful tenderizer. This is one the the best shortcuts to marinating meats.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 2


  • 2 steaks
  • 1 container of Italian dressing
  • Lawry's seasoning salt
  • lemon pepper seasoning
  • black pepper


Use a sealed container and place both steaks in it. Pour the entire bottle of Italian dressing over them and let marinade overnight or for several hours with the container sealed in the refrigerator. (The vinegar in the dressing breaks up muscle tissue and makes a very tender steak) A hour before cooking, combine seasoned salt, lemon pepper and black pepper and season steaks to preference. When steaks are cooking continue seasoning with lemon pepper until cooked to preference.

Good taste, Member scinco

I luckily had all the ingredients mentioned. I marinated the steaks overnight. It tastes great! I accidentally poured a little more lemon pepper on some parts of a steak so those areas were a little more lemony, so I advise all to use as much lemon pepper to your tastes at any time (especially before the directions of adding it while you're cooking). Other than that, a hint of lemon with the italian dressing and the combination of black pepper and seasoning salt comes together brilliantly.
