I knew this was gonna be good! I usually always try Kittencalskitchen recipes. I used this marinade for rib eye steaks. OMG, the marinade is absolutely delicious! As I kept rotating the meat, I kept licking my fingers just to taste the marinade. I had an 8 oz rib eye (one for myself) and another 8 oz for my hubby. I had marinade left over, and just hated to throw the left over out, again, it was so darn good. I cut my steak in half, hoping to eat only 3-4 oz of steak (portion control), but man, it was difficult giving that other half to my husband, but I had to get it off of my plate or I would have devoured that whole steak. So, good!!!

Delicious !!! I used this with ribeye steaks and let it set at least 24 hours - I also used Agave Nectar instead of honey. I never Pierce the meat with a fork or even polk because it takes away the texture and also lets out natural juices - IMO .
Was wonderful !!!

An excellent marinade. Have used this recipe twice, both times for grilled pork tenderloin. I used honey the first time and pure maple syrup the second time. Both were good, however, I think I prefer the maple syrup. I was out of ginger and substituted mace with a bit of grated lemon peel, and liked that also. Thanks Kitten!

Followed this recipe exactly, on some Tri-Tip and Ball-Tip steaks I found on clearance at Safeway. I usually just use a rub before grilling, and put up with the fact that these kinds of steaks aren't the most tender! This time, however, I soaked them overnight in Kittencal's marinade -- and voila! Moist and tender steaks, right off the grill, without an overpowering "marinade" flavor -- just right! I'll definitely be using this recipe again and again, on all kinds of meats! Thanks so much for sharing!

I made this marinade today and it is wonderful! I used fresh grated ginger (since I had some in the fridge) and also added lime zest, lime juice, and cilantro (again since I had some). Thanks for posting!

We've tried this twice now and both times it was great! First time we grilled for company and everyone loved it. Today I made it in the crockpot with carrots and potatoes and it smelled divine! This will be used over and over again as my family loves having pork at least once a week. Thank you for sharing!

I had some half price rib eye steaks in the freezer that were starting to get freezer burn. Used this marinade minus the meat tenderizer (they were rib eyes after all!) Absolutely fabulous. The flavor complemented the steak without overpowering it and it wasn't too sweet. Will use again with a tougher cut of meat and the tenderizer. Another great recipe KittenCal. Thanks for sharing.
