  • 1 cup Italian dressing
  • ½ cup A.1. Original sauce
  • ½ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice optional
  • 1 pound steak of choice (flat-iron, skirt, top sirloin or flank steak)


  • Combine dressing, A.1. sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice in a large resealable plastic bag or airtight container. Mix well.
  • Add steak to the marinade, making sure it is coated on all sides.
  • Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 4 hours or up to –36 hours.
  • When ready to cook, preheat the grill to 450–500°F. Allow steaks to come to room temperature.
  • Place steaks on the grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred (4–5 minutes). Flip steaks over and continue to grill to the desired doneness (see below; 5–7 minutes for medium).
  • Let meat rest for 5 minutes before serving. The steak will continue to cook a bit and the juices will distribute.



Grill prep. Start with a clean grill and add a little vegetable or olive oil to the grate before heating. 
Doneness guide. For steaks that are 1½ inches or thicker, use a meat thermometer. Start by charring them on both sides over high heat, then move them to low heat to finish cooking to the desired temperature:
o Rare: 120°F
o Medium-Rare: 130°F
o Medium: 140°F
o Medium-Well: 150–160°F
o Well Done: over 160°F
