Black Diamond Steak Recipe

Growing up in Central PA, we always had the Black Diamond Steaks.  This is a great recipe for the marinade.  It makes an awesome steak sandwich, topped with cheese, grilled onions.  Might be my Thanksgiving dinner.

4 New York strip or rib-eye fillets
2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup lite soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 pinch garlic powder

Mix together. Score steak on both sides. Marinate in above mixture 8 to 10 hours.

Grill 6 to 8 minutes per side


  1. Gonna try your Black Diamond Steak tomorrow (marinate them over night, grill tomorrow evening)to celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. I had (surprisingly) guessed most of the ingredients (except the "sweets") but I'm glad to have proportions, so thank-you in advance!
    I also have a question or two.... your cornbread w/ tasso looks awesome, but..... is tasso a sausage? And are you using ancho chilis or some other type canned or jarred jalapenos? Is the resulting cornbread lip-burning hot?

  2. I just used this marinade on a steak that's waiting for his appointment w/ the grill tomorrow evening; already smells tantalizing! What a great dinner to celebrate my daughter's High School graduation. Thank-you for the recipe- I had figured out the soy,vinegar, ginger and garlic w/ oil, but wouldn't have guessed the brown sugar / honey (thought maybe pineapple juice for the sweet component....); even have honey from McIlhenny, for the Louisianna touch to a PA recipe! I didn't realize it's origins, just that a restaurant here in IN use to have a great Black Diamond steak; they've closed, but the cravings go on.
    Thank-you in advance!

  3. Thanks. Tasso is like a smoked ham, smoked pork butt with cajun seasoning. As for the peppers, I just use canned jalapeno slices. IMHO it is not hot. Hope all goes well with the recipes and congrats on your daughter's graduation.
