  • 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1-1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Stone Ground Mustard
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper


  • Whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • Pour over and evenly coat your cut of beef. Cover and leave in the fridge for at least 8-12 hours. I like to do even up to 24 hours for more flavor and added tenderness. See Notes.
  • When ready, pull the beef out of the liquid and cook to your liking. I'm a big fan of grilling, but you do you! Discard the remaining marinade.


You can marinate your cut of beef in either a deep baking dish with cover or a zip-top bag. I honestly prefer the bag so that I can get the meat more evenly coated in the marinade and faster clean up. If using a baking dish, be sure to flip the meat at least once halfway through marinading time for more even flavor.
This marinade should be enough for 2-3 pounds of beef.
