Granddaddy's favorite steak marinade. Can be used with all cuts of beef. I usually reserve 1/2 cup of the marinade, then simmer it down to a syrup, and use it as a sauce for the steaks.

Very tasty - Used in slow cooker with Lamb and cabernet sauvignon. Substituted sage for coriander and added Fig vinegar. Can't wait to try this with other meats-Thank you! Read More

I was really enthused about trying this because with all these great ingredients I thought I'd end up with something exceptional. Truthfully?... It wasn't until after I had finished the steak which hubs grilled that I remembered I had marinaded it! In other words it's not that the marinade tastes bad I just couldn't taste it at all! Read More

My family liked the marinade (4 stars) but loved the suace (5 stars) that the simmered down portion made. I used an inexpensive Burgandy and omitted the coriander to suit my crew's tastes. Will use again! Read More

Excellent!! I used this to marinate pork chops and it was fantastic! I had some leftover FETZER cabernet sauvignon to find a recipe for and chose this. I used 1/4 tsp. garlic powder in place of the minced garlic and omitted the cumin and coriander (added parsley instead). While grilling we sprinkled a little sea salt and coarse ground pepper over the tops. This marinade recipe is a keeper for us. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I used sherry and low-sodium soy sauce and thought the taste was lacking especially in salt content. Next time I'll add some salt or use regular soy sauce and a better red wine. Will also let sit in marinade overnight instead of a couple hours. Read More

Excellent marinade. I used the dry substances as a rub and added coffee grounds to the mix. I also omitted the oil. This is similar to a marinade I use regularly I think I'll make this one my regular. Thank for sharing. Read More
