I'm not leaving stars, because....gasp! I messed this up. First, I used sirloin because I had it in the freezer, and it was too thick. Second, I used way too much pepper. Mine didn't turn out well because of my mistakes, but I can imagine how great this would be if I hadn't totally screwed it up!!!

I made this as written apart from using about 1 tablespoon of my fresh thme leaves instead of dried. We loved this and could eat it again tomorrow night. Thanks for posting!

I actually marinated these and then grilled them. PERFECTION!! I coated them with the mustard and rubbed in the pepper. I then placed all remaining ingredients in a ziploc. Dropped in the steak and marinated in the icebox 2-3 hrs. We grilled to our liking (med. rare) and they were great!! Thanks so much gail ann!! ZWT6- Xtra Hot Dishes.
