This was just ok. Flavor was rather blah and never really soaked into the meat. It really just tasted like beef.

Very good!! I used a couple flap steaks and let them marinate overnight in the fridge. Really tender & delicious. One suggestion cooks: dry off the excess marinade before placing steak in skillet. Thanks much, LMillerRN!! :)

We love eating skirt steak with this type of marinate. I make a recipe very similar to this one, the only difference is that I usually mix red wine vinegar (or old red wine)with balsamic vinegar. I don't care for rosemary in it - it's optional in my house. I use minced garlic sometimes - that little jar already minced you can find in the produce area. Skirt steak and flank steak are best if marinated. They absorve the flavor from all the stuff marinating with it. Just delicious!!!
