Great flavours in this marinade, I used Black Heart rum and cooked the steaks 5 mins each side to our liking, thanks for posting.

This was the BEST steak I've ever cooked! I had to improvise with the ingredients, some of the items I just didn't have handy, used dried onions instead of shallots, cayenne pepper instead of red pepper flakes and New York Strip steak rather than tenderloin. The steak leaves a delightful taste in your mouth, with a slow burn(not too hot or spicey) Will enjoy this recipe often, Thank you very much!
