  • Airtight Container
  • Grill


  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • cup lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 ½ pounds steak sliced thin


  • In a medium tupperware container or re-sealable bag, whisk together your honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, ginger and garlic.
  • Add in your steak, and mix until coated.
  • Marinade for at least 30 minutes (sometimes I'll even let it sit overnight for great flavor).
  • Grill over medium heat until steak pieces reach desired doneness.


This also makes a yummy chicken marinade, too.
