"This is a variation of a recipe I got from a book that came with my BBQ. I used strip loin steaks and it was fantastic. You don't need any steak sauce to go with it. The taste from the marinade is delicious!"

"OMG The Very Best Indoor Steak EVER!!! You should be walking around like a proud peacock knowing you introduced such a wonderful marinade to all your fellow zaarities. I only was able to marinade for about 2 hours, then preheated a cast iron grill skillet on medium high heat for 10 minutes. Cooked, without disurbing any of the marinade from the steak, for 6 minutes on each side to produce a just well done steak. Very juicy and tender was my T bone. Thanks so much for posting. Will be a do again soon! UPDATE: I have used this recipe sooo many times now, I buy any kind of steak on sale and use this, I crave this taste. This recipe is enjoyed 2 to 3 times a week... I can say that I enjoy this cooked inside more than I do grilled. Oh and have discovered with many times of cooking and different marinade times... that one hour marinating is as good as 24 hours, taste wise."
"This marinade is fantastic! It doesn't change the steak's flavor, it just enhances the natural flavor, tenderizes, and creates a beautiful carmalization on the outside. I was a little skeptical that this would taste good since it smells kind of gross uncooked, but boy, was I wrong! I am doing a south beach diet, and always have to choke steak down since I'm growing so tired of it, but this marinade made me look forward to meal time again! The first time I used the marinade I just let the meat sit in the marinade. Then, I wondered if I could get even more of that tenderness and flavor if I pierced the steak all over before marinading it. Since I love steak medium rare, this was a mistake. The inner part of the steak cooked too fast and it turned out well-done. I won't do that again! Thank you so much for sharing this!"
"As a cattleman, I don't normally like anything that would mask the natural flavor of the beef. This marinade added a truely fantastic flavor to the steak. It definitely complimented the natural flavor of the steak. "
"Not only is this the best marinade by far (and I'm uber picky) but just for the heck of it I mixed everything except the oil together and added it to 1 1/2 lbs of ground chuck before forming patties....now we can't have hamburgers without this fabulous mixture in them! Juicy and the flavor is off the charts."
"Great marinade. I increased all the ingredients to get about 1 1/2 cups for a platter of Boneless Top Sirloin Steaks I got at Costco. I added more Black Pepper and Garlic. I added some Sage to it for extra flavor. Marinated for 7 Hours. I grilled the steaks over Charcoal with Mesquite Chips about 5 Minutes each side for RARE. It was delicious! Served the Steaks with Salad and a bottle of Argentinean Malbec wine. Excellent! Thanks."
"I have mixed reviews on this recipe. My husband thought it was great, I thought it was okay. I marinated 2 Rib Steaks for over 18 hours. I think cooking time may be the determining factor. My steak was cooked Well Done, my Husband's Medium-Well. For mine, the edges tasted great, but the main part of the steak didn't have any special flavour to me and it was a little tough. My husband's steak had great flavour throughout and was very tender. My husband insists I make this again, I guess I will have it Medium-Well next time ;)"
"This stuff is great. It has a good flavor with out to much of a salty flavor. I have made it three times in the last month. Once for about 20 people and everyone love it. The sauce makes just enough for three steaks. Which is perfect for my family."
"This is a great tasting marinade. I've used it twice now. The first time I only marinaded my steak about 4 hours and loved it. The second time, it was in the marinade about 30 hours. Can't say there was really much difference. I love that it doesn't disguise the taste of the steak, but merely enhances it. Thanks so much for sharing this "keeper"."
"this was AMAZING! i made a few changes..i tripled the recipe and used about 7 pepper steaks. i also used one tablespoon less vinegar because i find that it usually overpowers marinades...i added onion powder, salt and 2 pinches of dry mustard to the marinade. i threw it all in the food processor and then poured it into a freezer bag with the steaks. i marinated the steaks for 7 hours and then placed them, with extra marinade poured on them, in the oven at 450 degrees for 9 minutes on each side to cook it to medium rare. i actually cut the steaks into bite sized pieces and placed them atop a salad of lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers, drizzling the marinade over the steak salad. it was DELICIOUS!! i would say though that if you are not a mustard fan this is probably not for you....that was a very notable flavor in this dish. thanks for posting! i will definitely make this again!"
"A very nice marinade which I used on a london broil cut of beef. Marinated for 4 hours and the flavors were perfect after grilling. Thanks for sharing such a great marinade recipe."
"I used this marinade on one pack of extra firm tofu: frozen, thawed, pressed them sliced. I opted for white vinegar instead of balsamic vinegar. It tasted AMAZING after marinating all night and then grilled. I will definitely be using this marinade on my BBQ tofu from now on!!"
"yes very tasty!! definately a 'keeper' recipe for those steak nights!"
"you're right, it was totally amazing! Didn't need barbecue sauce or anything. Thanks :)"
"Very easy to make (which is important to me). Put the marinade in a resealable bag and the steaks overnight. Slightly scored the steaks to get good flavour. Cooked the steaks in a cast iron pan for about 3 minutes on each side. Lots of yummy charring happening :-) and the steak was still medium rare. Definitely worth giving a try and I will make this again."
"I can't say this marinade did it for me. The mustard flavor was overpowering. It just didn't enhance that steak flavor. I used boneless strips and had them in the marinade for 5 hours."
"Really wonderful! Tripled the recipe for six thick T-bone steaks and marinated for about 4 hours. I'm not a fan of vinegary/mustardy marinades, but this was the perfect balance of flavors. Followed cooking directions on Weber's website and the steaks were perfect. Will use again! Thanks!"
"Sadly, I am not sure what all of the fuss is about. I marinated my steaks overnight. I even pounded them beforehand (with the side of the mallet that makes holes). The flavor of the marinade did not come through at all, nor were the steaks tender. They were round steaks, which must be marinated to be grilled effectively, but 24 hours should have been plenty."
"My husband and I used this marinade tonite on a huge flat iron steak we had bought on sale. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!! We both really loved it and will be using again. Thanks so much for posting this. I really didn't look forward to another jarred marinade."
"WOW!! this was awesome... only difference is I used jarred garlic instead of fresh. I cooked this on my propane grill but it really had the flavor of a charcoal cooked steak!"
"Yet another GREAT marinade from recipezaar.. I mean Food.com! This one was excellent. The only thing I did differently was use garlic powder, because I can't believe it, but I had no fresh garlic or even minced in the jar! It was still reallllllllly good! I posted picture of my christmas day steaks using this marinade. Added mushrooms and onions to the steak also. Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to using this again...."
