Steaks Marinated in Onion Juice

A simple recipe to marinate steaks for a cookout: onion juice tenderizes meat without draining its own juices and no need to clean onions themselves as if you would need to do when marinating meat with chopped onions.

I used only salt and ground black pepper as seasonings this time, but other spices can be used to your taste: bay leaf, allspice, paprika, whole peppercorns, whatever you like.

Any meat cut will work here, more lean meats may require more time for marinating.

Thank you very much for your recipes and this website! I’ve been wanting to try cooking more traditional Russian and Ukrainian dishes, and this seems like the perfect place to look – your directions are very clear, and the pictures very helpful. Thank you, and I hope you’ll continue sharing your recipes with us for a long time to come.

Julia! What a great idea! Does the meat retain a very strong onion flavor and scent? I wonder how onion-phobes who are worried about their breath feel? 🙂 I’m a huge meat with onions fan, so I’m giving it a go!
