This ia great marinade! You will be happy you tried this recipe. I came up with it while messing around in the kitchen. The steaks were so juicy and tangy, I cannot wait to make these again! My husband ABSOLUTELY loved them! Preparation includes marinating time. I would double the recipe for every two steaks or four chops added, to be sure there is plenty of marinade.

Nice flavor. I did marinate for 24 hours. Will make this again. Did not use the Montreal seasoning. Used steakhouse seasoning, which is what I had on hand.

This was very good! I used Smokey Seasoned Salt in place of McCormick's Montreal Brand steak seasoning because I just don`t buy them. I made it on beef steaks and just know this would be so good on lamb. It has a Greek Style to the marinade. I did cut back on the soy and seasonings. Thanks!

This was quite good. I made this a couple of weeks ago and forgot to rate it. I didn't change any of the ingredients. I used this on lamb steaks. I sprinkled the McCormick's seasoning on both sides of the steaks, placed them in the baking dish and just poured the mixed ingredients over them and marinaded for about 4-5 hours in the fridge. Broiled them in the same dish right from the fridge. I'm making this again tonight!
