I've googled a bit but most posts are about simply adding Origin to Steam and then renaming it to "Battlefield 3".

Nope, you have to run Origin to run BF3. I don't know why people are so resistant to Origin, I mean it's not that bad. Just add BF3 via Origin in Steam, disable Origin overlay, and you won't even notice the service is running. It will act just like a Steam game.

The only bad thing is when you quit BF3, you will have to quit Origin, otherwise Steam will still report you as playing BF3.

EDIT: sorry for ninja edits
