• 1 kg t-bone steak
  • Onion and soy marinade

A lot of Zimbabweans enjoy having a braai, which is commonly known as a barbecue in other countries. This is what I was up to over the weekend. I made this absolutely delicious onion and soy marinade which sipped well into the T-bone steak and the taste was just fantastic. There was some finger-licking going on at the table! For the braai I used commercial charcoal which provided a “slow-cooking” for the steak.

Quick Instructions

Follow THIS LINK for the onion and soy marinade.

  1. Place your t-bone steak (1 kg) in your marinating dish. Pour the onion and soy marinade over the T-bone steak. Massage it into the meat and make sure that each piece is covered with the marinade. Seal your marinating container and marinate the meat for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator. Light your fire and place the meat on the braai stand. (Don’t place the meat on direct flames otherwise it’ll burn before being cooked!) Flip the meat until cooked to your preference, *basting as you go. Enjoy!

Remember, the longer you marinate your meat, the juicier and tastier it will be. If you cannot braai the meat you can still pan-fry it or put it in the grill at 180 degrees Celsius/ 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ Gas Mark 4 and grill for about 60 minutes, basting as you go.

*Basting is pouring the marinade over the meat whilst it’s cooking, this aids in the flavour as well as making the meat nice and juicy

So next time you’re having a braai why not try this. You’ll love it! Let me know how it goes. You can serve it with sadza (pap) if it’s a braai or if grilled serve with fries or rice and your favourite vegetables.
