Remember to bring the steaks to almost room temperature before grilling this will relax the meat fibers and make for a more tender juicy steak. For best results it is recommended not to substitute any ingredients, do not add any salt to the marinade and do not salt the meat until ready to grill. The marinade may be used for any cut of steaks"

What a great marinade this is!!!! I cut back the recipe for just one steak as I was cooking this for DH for father's day. He said the steak turned out so moist and juicy, he absolutely loved it. Thanks for yet another great recipe Kit. Made for the Alphabet Soup Recipe Tag Game.
