Using a marinade on steak is a good way to create fresh flavors and it also helps tenderize a firmer piece of meat. A marinade can be used on any piece of steak but is more useful on lower-quality cuts.

There are lots of flavor options and combinations, this one is a more basic Asian-inspired one. The flavor comes from garlic and ginger with the acid being soy sauce.

While camping the marinade can be applied in a bag making transport and clean up easy. At home a shallow bowl or casserole dish can be used, it is better to avoid plastics that can absorb the flavors and/or become stained.
