When the weekend rolls around, it’s time to get ready for those friends and family members coming over for a braai. However, as the host, some extra planning and preparing is needed. You want the best meat on the braai, so a great marinade is necessary and our garlic steak recipe is here to help you. The garlic and lemon marinade is the perfect way to flavour the beef and doubles as a serving sauce.

Garlic steak suggestions

The marinade is simple and only reduced for a few minutes to enhance the flavour of garlic. Because the marinade is also cooked, it makes for a great serving sauce. You can add some stock and pan-fried mushrooms to the sauce if you want another take on it. The steak is best cooked on a hot braai but still works perfectly when fried in a pan with a bit of olive oil. Serve with garlic bread and some sides like potato or green salad.
