Serving Size

4 servings


1 cup/8 oz. cranberry juice

¼ cup/2 oz. soy sauce

2 Tbsp./1 oz. grated ginger

2 tsp. thyme leaves

4 (4 oz.) well-marbled steaks such as hanger, skirt or rib eye

1 Tbsp./½ oz. vegetable oil


Combine the cranberry juice, soy sauce, ginger and thyme in a bowl that can hold the steaks.  Add the steaks and marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes and up to 24 hours.

Heat a grill over medium-high heat.  Remove steak from marinade, reserving it, and blot excess moisture.  Drizzle with vegetable oil. Grill until nicely charred on both sides and cooked to desired doneness.  This will depend on the cut of steak, about 4-5 minutes per side for a 1” steak to be cooked to medium rare.

While the steak is cooking, place the marinade in a saucepan and boil it down to by half. Mixture should be syrupy. Pour over steak.
