"We have been using this recipe since 1974. It was given to me by a good friend and Master Chef at the Charcoal Inn in Gaithersburg, MD. Very flavorful. This works well for meats prepared on the grill ( indoor or out ), in a smoker, under a broiler or in the oven. Note: Best if marinaded over night."

I love how the ingredients permeate into the meat while sitting in marinade. Makes for a great tasting steak on the barbie!

Quick marinade. Steaks were tender, and tasted good!

Meat was tender and tasted pretty good. Not sure we cared for it as much as others seem to have though. It was worth a try.

Saw the great reviews on this recipe and was disappointed with the results. Too much cayenne and horseradish for us. Too strong a flavor of both. Don't think I will use this again the way it is written.

THE BEST MARINADE! I use it for all meat. It makes meat tender like better. Thanks for this Shadows.

Using this marinade results in a tender, juicy and so packed full of flavor steak. I prefer using rib eye and New York Sirloin steaks and using my grill. Super delicious!
