And what a great beef steak it is. I used fat free Italian salad dressing. This is a great marinade that doesn't overpower the taste of the steak. Thanks Squirrel. Read More

I wanted and expected this to be so much more than what it was especially since I was basing my expectations on all the positive reviews. But it didn't turn out that way. It was good but not any more special than just a good seasoning rub or simpler marinade I've tried. This recipe has alot of ingredients for little reward. Sorry. Read More

Great steak marinade! I would have never thought of such an odd combination of ingredients but it really worked. Everyone loved it. It was a bit on the salty side even though I used low sodium soy sauce so I think next time I'd leave out the seasoned salt. Other than that I'll definitely make this again for a BBQ! Read More

Way to go Squirrel! Awesome recipe. I sauteed fresh mushrooms & garlic then mixed in some of the leftover marinade and let it reduce then poured it over the steak. Thanks for the keeper! Read More

The other reviewers are right. This is a great marinade that doesn't overpower the taste of the meat, more like "punches up" the flavor of the beef. I doubled the recipe for a 2 lb. london broil, worked out fine. Marinated for approx. 18 hrs. I did not add all the additional salt (seasoning or regular), nor did I add the steak seasoning (Montreal). With soy sauce and bottled dressing in the marinade, who needs all the extra salt, or high blood pressure ;)? Very good, simple, and again, the beef flavor wasn't overpowered, only enhanced. A keeper. Thanks Squirrel. ps - When I told my kids they were having Squirrel's Great Beef Steak for dinner, they said "Squirrel - for dinner? " They loved it. Even my picky 9 y.o. Read More

This marinade was excellent. My husband couldn't stop raving about it. But because we prefer different cuts of beef I'll try something different next time. Two weeks later: This is awesome with chicken too. I grilled boneless skinless after marinading overnight and topped them with swiss cheese. I'm changing my rating from 4 to 5 stars. P.S. The Smart Chicken brand is the most delicious chicken I ever had and worth every penny. Read More
