    Chef #221488's Note:

    This recipe comes from my Dad's recipe file. It's a real treat to visit and have Dad make his trademarked, perfectly grilled and seasoned porterhouse steaks! The marinade is so simple that I'm able to do it in 5 minutes before heading off to work in the morning. Enjoy!

      I used this marinade on some T-bones. I added some coarse ground black pepper and used shallots instead of onion. The steaks were delicious, juicy, and tender. I brought them to room temperature before grilling and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. They certainly did not have the texture of "Rubbermaid". I actually tried your marinade before posting a review and I am glad I did. This would make a great marinade for less expensive cuts of beef. Let's face it, top cuts are not always in everyone's budget. Thanks for sharing your Dad's recipe with us!

      This is a marinade that I adore. We used to use one almost identical to this (just added black pepper) on flank steak. It turned out delicious and *tender*. We all have our personal taste and this one suits us to a "T".

      A very subtle marinade. I added 1 teaspoon of honey. Found that the marinade enhanced the flavor of the steak, Chef Bob's rant aside. Thanks for posting!
