Poor Man's T-Bone Steak

READY IN: 24hrs 10mins
Recipe by ugogirl

This recipe turns a cheap cut of beef into a tasty grilled steak. It's great for camping or picnics because you can make it ahead, marinate up to two days and then grill it when you are ready. (The cooking time is the marinating time.)

I marinaded all day. Maybe next time I would use a little less liquid smoke and a little less brown sugar. The steak tasted too sweet for me but other wise was good and tender. I put my steak under the broiler for about 6-7 minutes. It turned out rare just the way I like it. <br/>Made for chef alphabet soup.
