Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This method turned out some tasty steaks! Marinated for a little less than a couple of hours because time just didn’t permit for a longer marinate, but next time I will marinate longer, possibly 4 hours to overnight. The wine /mushroom sauce came out nice and tasty, however, I sautéed the mushrooms in about a tablespoon of butter before adding the wine to the pan; made for a perfect accompaniment with the steak. Thank you, Pat, for sharing. Made it for FYC.

This marinade made a great tasting steak. I marinated it for about 6 hrs. This is deserving of all 5 stars!
