Was looking for a simple marinade with ingredients that I all ready had. This one met that criteria. I let the steaks sit for about 12 hours. They came off the grill juicy and tasty. Did not make the sauce because we use our own home made sauce. Highly recommend that you give this one a try. Thank you.
Excellent marinade! It was so easy to put together, and it really stuck to the steaks (I used tomato paste). Use a good red wine (I used some leftover Cab) and a good quality balsamic vinegar and you won't be disappointed! We didn't save any of the marinade to serve over the steaks, but they really didn't need it - just a sprinkling of salt and they were perfect. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring '08.
