  • Place all of the ingredients except the steak, garlic, butter and olive oil into a food processor or powerful blender. Rough chop the garlic and toss that in. Start pulsing the mixture and drizzle in the olive oil until it is pureed.
  • Place steaks in a ziplock bag. Pour marinade over the steaks making sure it covers all sides and let sit in the fridge over night. Turn the bag over about half way through the marinating process.
