Steak Marinade

This steal marinade recipe yields that classic flavor you are looking for out of a steak. It not only tenderizes the meat, but also adds flavor and creates an extra juicy steak you will be craving. The first time I made this marinade we had a couple of poor quality thin steaks that needed eating. I suspected they would be tough to eat just as they were, and opted to marinate them for an hour or two. With just 2 hours marinating, they barbequed up pretty nicely and were tender and juicy. With an even better cut of meat, like the one in the photos, I literally ate with my eyes closed and zoned out the world around me so I could enjoy every delicious bite of this stake. Of course my husband manned the BBQ so I cant take credit for the perfect medium rare on these babies, but the marinade played a big part in its scrumptious flavor I'm sure. At the end of the day, steak loves to be soaked in a bath of flavor and a splash of acid to help it be the best it can be.
