I usually don't attempt to cook or prepare any meal more complex than cereal for breakfast, so the fact that this recipe had only a handful of steps and common ingredients was a huge incentive for me. I used our gas oven's broiler because we don't have an iron skillet (plus the smoke alarm would have sounded throughout our apartment building!) and it turned out AMAZING!! I wish mine had as much char as the picture...maybe I'll add a little more brown sugar next time...and by next time, I mean tomorrow. The other porterhouse is thawing in the fridge! THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE!!

I was amazed! Love steak, and really love it grilled. But this was perfect on a cold rainy night, and tasted fabulous... my meat was nice and pink/red after cooking for a little less than the recommended cooking times. But I don't like overdone steaks! Used a very large T-bone...really a porterhouse....perfection. I was absolutely amazed by the wonderful taste.....poured the hot drippings over the steaks to serve. Fabulous!

I am soo impressed by this recipe. I don't make steak very often, and have failed several times besides. And my husband likes steak so much... So I followed this recipe exactly- and it worked! Yay! Three rooms of our house filled with smoke from the 'charring', and hubby thought I was doing something very wrong- but the taste was so excellent! I believe it's owed to the cook time! Right on the dot, ElaineAnn! Thanks!

Yum! This is such a simple but flavorful marinade. I used a rib eye steak, pan fried it and devoured it! Thanks ElaineAnn for a nice keeper. Congrats again on your week 16 Football win!

Great recipe. I prepared this and cooked it medium-rare for my boyfriend and he LOVED it. I'm personally not a big fan of steak in general, but I had a few bites and even I had to say it was quite delicious. I almost wish we hadn't eaten it all up, because I would've loved to try the leftovers in a Philly cheesesteak. :P Thanks for sharing!

This was an extremely easy recipe to make. I followed it exactly, with a 1" thick steak, and it came out wonderfully. The outside edges (where it was thinner) came out a deliciously charred medium-well, and the inner parts were medium. The flavor was not overpowering in the slightest. The steak tastes first and foremost like a steak. The marinade just gave a robust, slightly salty flavor to the outside of the steak. On a side note, I used nama shoyu instead of soy sauce, as that's what I had on hand. Nama shoyu is quite similar to soy sauce, but has a slightly milder, sweeter flavor.

This is how a steak should taste! I used a New York strip, cut the marinade in half. Pan Fried (my favorite way to do a steak) served with a baked potato topped with cottage cheese & chives and a corn on the cob dusted with Cajun Spice Thanks ElaineAnn you have done yourself proud with this recipe!

Truly an outstanding marinade. I used a sirloin steak for this and cooked it on the grill which worked perfectly! I will be using this wonderful marinade again! Thank you, ElaineAnn : )
