Got this on the hush from a restaurant that is famous for their marinated steaks. The steak can get dark on the outside but it tastes great. There is beau monde seasoning and gravy master in this blend! This is a strong marinade and it can last up to 2 months in the refrigerator.*the reviewer is right but I ususally go to the restaurant in Riverhead! Been going for 20 years! I feel so old saying that. My kids love this marinade too. It's very delicious and you could use it on any cut of steak.
