what do i do with my steak now after i marinated it?!
Yohannes, you can use butter or olive oil, no need to rinse of marinade, just place it into a hot skillet, do one side then the other, make sure you only turn it once.
Mostly chefs leave the steak in the fridge to marinate and soak all the flavor.
I like the flavour of the meat by itself but this would be a good opportunity to try a steak, grilled in olive oil, for only 4 minutes a side on medium high heat and then cut in strips to use for a steak salad, or a fajita or other wrap or item.
You don't need to rinse off the marinade and don't add anymore salt and pepper. I also depends on what kind of steak you are using. A NY strip loin is more tender than a sirloin steak so we usually don't need to marinade a NY steak. Prime Rib steaks are tender too. I would marinate a sirloin, or a chuck steak or a round steak and then quick fry them.
Olive oil is fine.... use the extra virgin stuff for the salads and the regular olive oil for frying, but don't use too high of heat for any oil.
