I was having a big BBQ party at my house back in 1999 and was stumped as to what kind of marinade to whip up for my guests. I brain stormed what would taste good with what and went from there. My friends raved about it. When I invited them over for the next BBQ, all I heard was, "Are you making those great steaks of yours?" This recipe was made mainly for steak but this marinade tastes great with chicken or portabella mushrooms as well!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine and Mix well all ingredients into a 1-gallon zip lock baggie.
  2. Marinade steak, roast or chicken breasts over night in the refrigerator and the portabellas for a couple of hours in the refrigerator.
  3. BBQ placing a Rosemary sprig on each steak or roast or chicken breast but not the portabella.
  4. Smoke'em if you got'em. I like Alder wood or Jack Daniel's wood smoking chips.
  5. Slice and serve.
  6. I hope you enjoy this marinade as much as my friends have.

I make with rib eye steak and is very good. I save to make again. Thank you to share with me!<br/><br/>-Yadiki

Sounds great! I've never heard of the amino liquid. The only thing I'd change, if your going thru all that trouble use fresh slices of ginger.
