This was in the little cook booklet that came with my Brinkman Smoker. Naturally I jimmied it about to suit my taste, I'm probably not through changing it but it's wonderful as it now is. I buy steaks on sale, cut them into serving size portions, put them into individual zip lock bags with some of this marinade and freeze them. Take as many as needed from the freezer the night before and let them thaw overnight in the fridge, when evening comes they will be properly marinated and ready to grill or broil or even pan fry. I don't discard the used marinade. I remove the meat and boil the the marinade while grilling the meat then pour the now safe marinade over the meat and serve.
