Recipe by Miss Annie

A new twist to grilling steaks. Tart and a little bit sweet, but ever so good!

Top Review by PetsRus

This recipe not only gave the steaks a lovely flavor, but seemed to lift the heaviness of the beef.A truly unusual marinade which I thought would only work for chicken or fish, but I was wrong.I cooked the steaks, rib eye, in a grill pan on the top of the stove.
