    Hi what kind red wine do u recommend?

    I omitted the salt and replaced it with lemon pepper, and I used Port wine instead of red wine because I think it has a heartier flavour. I marinated a couple of cheap steaks for about 16 hours, broiled them today, and they were delicious. First class marinade, Art - thanks for posting!

    This was simply wonderful. I think next time I make it I will marinate overnight, because the flavor is so wonderful I want it to really soak into the meat. The flavors blend together so well; its just perfect and so simple to throw together. Thanks so much Art!

    Good marinade. I discovered a lack of balsamic vinegar in my pantry so substituted with red wine vinegar and it was still very good. Thanks!

    This seemed so simple, but it really added a wonderful flavor to the steaks! Have to confess I used two cloves of garlic since we love it, but followed the recipe faithfully other than that. I like that the flavor didn't overpower the steaks, just enchanced their own flavor. This is a keeper for the "make it again" file!

    i like the fact that this is a marinade that was made up of ingrediants i will almost always have on hand. steaks had a very flavorful, but not overpowering taste. i added some extra garlic too. and didn't have cumin, so i used some of Emeril's Bayou Blast. i marinated my steaks for about 15 hrs....they were really, really good.

    The only substitute we made was replacing the red wine with cranberry juice ( for people that don't have red wine on hand like us) this was excellent. We will use again and again. Marinade overnight it highly recommended.

    This was a good marinade. The only change I made was using orange juice in place of lemon juice and 3 cloves or garlic... we love garlic. Thanks for the recipe!
