    Excellent marinade. I marinated the steak all day, and it turned out delicious. Broiled it to medium - turned out great.

    My family loved this. I do not eat steak, so I honestly cannot say how it was, but the rest of the family raved about how good it was. I marinated about 6 hours and grilled for about 20 minutes on medium on the gas grill. Then I turned off that side of the grill and left it for about 15 minutes in indirect heat. Served with scalloped potatoes and corn and everyone enjoyed. Thanks for an easy marinade to spruce up usually bland (and tough) london broil.

    I'm very picky about London Broil (it has to be Top Round, not the flank steak everyone else uses) This was out of this world. Great flavor!!! Only thing I did extra was to add some chopped garlic cloves (since we like it heavy on the garlic) and a little liquid smoke to the marinade (sorry, I use that alot when I grill out) This was fantastic and will use it all summer long! Thank you

    This marinade worked wonderfully with top round (London broil). I used red wine vinegar (instead of balsamic) and let it marinate 24 hours, turning a few times. Grilled to medium rare and sliced very thin. Perfect !

    This was great! I didn't realize top round was so tough. I won't be buying it again, but I will definitely use this marinade for other cuts of beef. I added dried minced onions, freshly-ground white pepper and a dash of liquid smoke. Great flavor!

    The flavor of the marinade was great, even though we overcooked our meat. I used minced garlic instead of powder, and used a double batch of marinade for 2 pounds of steak. Thanks for posting!

    This was prepared on the outside grill after marinating all day. It was cooked medium well, sliced thin and enjoyed by all. The meat was juicy, tender and flavorful. I used minced garlic instead of the garlic powder.

    Marinated overnight, steak had a good flavor. Also smelled great while cooking. Didn't have garlic powder so used a clove of minced fresh garlic instead. Will definately keep this marinade recipe around.
