Garlic Redeye Steak Marinade

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by Megohm

A fantastic marinade my fiancée and I came up with one cold, cold night. Robust (but not too robust!), rich and very tender steak. Great for sirloins and prime rib. Easy, too! Our favorite. Note: Try to use the best coffee you can - your steaks will like it. (Marinating time is cooking time)

I marinated steaks over night using this recipe. My pepper wasn't very hot. While I didn't eat any, my family felt it was okay but didn't have much flavor. If I made this again, I would have to do some tweaking to make it more to my family's tastes.
