I omitted the salt and replaced it with lemon pepper, and I used Port wine instead of red wine because I think it has a heartier flavour. I marinated a couple of cheap steaks for about 16 hours, broiled them today, and they were delicious. First class marinade, Art - thanks for posting!
This was simply wonderful. I think next time I make it I will marinate overnight, because the flavor is so wonderful I want it to really soak into the meat. The flavors blend together so well; its just perfect and so simple to throw together. Thanks so much Art!
Good marinade. I discovered a lack of balsamic vinegar in my pantry so substituted with red wine vinegar and it was still very good. Thanks!
This seemed so simple, but it really added a wonderful flavor to the steaks! Have to confess I used two cloves of garlic since we love it, but followed the recipe faithfully other than that. I like that the flavor didn't overpower the steaks, just enchanced their own flavor. This is a keeper for the "make it again" file!
i like the fact that this is a marinade that was made up of ingrediants i will almost always have on hand. steaks had a very flavorful, but not overpowering taste. i added some extra garlic too. and didn't have cumin, so i used some of Emeril's Bayou Blast. i marinated my steaks for about 15 hrs....they were really, really good.
This marinade was easy and added a very delicious flavor to the steaks I had yesterday. Since I live in Florida, I was able to fire up the outdoor grill. And the marinade certainly made the steaks flavorful. I highly recommend this recipe. Five Stars. Mark
Maine-iac, we really enjoyed our steaks last night! I usually grill them straight out of the package, so your recipe was a special treat. I made exactly as directed and marinated the steaks for 5 hours and served with Charlotte J's Grilled Garlic Bread Grilled Garlic Bread and Lee Lee's Cabbage Relish Mother's Cabbage Relish. Will definiately make again!
This was terrific. I really liked the way it subtly flavored the steak without overpowering it. DH loved it too. Thanks for posting the recipe - I'll be hanging on to this one.
Excellent marinade Maine-iac. I followed the recipe exactly and we had the most delicious and tender steaks. I agree with some of the other reviewers, that this marinade does not cover up the wonderful flavor of the beef, just enhances it. My husband and I highly recommend this for all steak-lovers to try.
We also loved the flavor this gave our rib eyes. But I'm with D4H I want to marinade my next steaks overnight. I might even pierce the steak some to get more flavor into the meat. Thanks for a great marinade!!!
