Instructions Checklist
  • Pierce steaks all over with a fork, and place them into a resealable freezer bag. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon of olive oil, cocktail sauce, honey, soy sauce, garlic, and seasoning salt. Pour over the steaks in the bag, seal, and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 6 hours, turning frequently.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. When grill is heated, lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove steaks from marinade, reserving marinade. Grill for about 7 minutes on each side, or to your desired degree of doneness.

  • While steaks are grilling, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, and cook until tender. Pour in reserved marinade, and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, or until thickened. Serve with steaks.

Great Flavor!!!! Made this last night for dinner on my George Foreman grill.I did everything according to recipe.I marinated a thick Ribeye steak for about 9 hours and sliced a large portabella mushroom for the sauce.It was soo delish!!!! I often sautee mushrooms or onions with our steak but My DH always uses steak sauce anyway but with this recipe no steak sauce was needed. He loved it!!! I thought it was a bit sweet but very tasty. We will definately be having this again. I made this again and had a different taste - The cocktail sauce you use makes a big difference in flavor. Thank you for sharing your recipe Read More

This was just ok for us. We marinated for about 8 hours and then grilled the steaks outside. I think I would like it better if I would have cooked the marinade in a saucepan and then served as a side sauce for the steak. It was something different though we usually use "Perfect Marinade for Steak" from this site and it's really good. Read More

I did not change any of the ingredients but I did change how it was cooked. Instead of on the grill I cubed the steak and let it simmer in all the marinade in a large skillet. After the steak was a little over half way done I added the mushrooms and let it continue simmering. I served it over rice and it turned out great. The only thing I am going to do different next time is add some sliced onion to the mix. Read More

I don't know if this is new to the site or not...but it's EXCELLENT! Everyone try this. You don't have to marinate too long (I added extra garlic because I love it soo much) and you still come out with tender tasty steak. I broiled in the oven 6 mins on each side. Mmmm!!! Read More

Excellent! I didn't have mushrooms so I just used it as a marinade. It was easy & really tasty. I used less cocktail sauce just because I only had about 1/4 cup but it was still really good. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
