This makes a tasty, extremely tender pepper steak. Try serving with salad, tomatoes and French fries.

This was a quick and easy recipe. I used regular Soy Sauce instead of Tamari. This is the first steak I have cooked anywhere other than my BBQ and enjoyed. If snow or rain is keeping you indoors this is a great recipe to try. VERY EASY!

This has good reveiws but we were not impressed. Hubby didn't like it and he isn't picky. The flavor of the steak was totally overwhelmed IMO. All we could taste was salt no other flavors were evident. The Dad's Steak Rub from this site is much better. Sorry.

So very easy to make...my learnings: 1. Marinating it over night really increases the flavor. 2. Definitely just eye the ingredients--you really can't mess this up.

Delicious!! A HUGE hit for Father's Day this year. Took some additional surfing to figure out what "tamari" is though! I just used regular soy sauce and some t-bone steaks and grilled them - turne dout wonderfully - thanks!

i submitted this recipe a few years back and i did write soya sauce or soy sauce....i was just looking at the recipe again and i don't know what tamari is or who changed it since i did not write that in the first place. This really is an easy recipe...really handy. Thanks for the reviews. MARLA

I used Tri-Tip that I cut into 1-1/2" filets and grilled them over medium coals 8 minutes first side and 9 minutes second side. It was so good one of my friend's head exploded. Don't be afraid to use even MORE garlic.

This was so simple and delicious. The steak smelled so heavenly while cooking it almost didn't make it to the plates. We'll be using the marinade recipe often and we look forward to trying it on BBQ'd steak.

I have to qualify this review by saying that the steaks we had ( 10/each filets) probably would have tasted good no matter what....BUT this marinade was delicious!!! I made as described except I doubled everything because we had 3 large steaks. Marinated for 1 hour in fridge. Only took about 4-5 minutes per side. TO DIE FOR good. Better than any I've had in a restaurant. Will have to try again with "regular" steak!
