  • Pierce the steaks in several places on both sides; arrange in a single layer in a shallow non-reactive dish. Pour the marinade over the steaks, flipping the meat to coat both sides. Allow to marinate in refrigerator 3 to 4 hours, flipping meat once halfway through.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove the steaks from the marinade and shake off excess moisture; discard the remaining marinade.

  • Cook the steaks until they are beginning to firm, and are hot and slightly pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) for medium.

good marinade-however anyone that cooks meat knows you don't pierce meat prior to cooking as it makes the meat give off the juices while cooking. And let the meat rest after cooking to allow meat to redistribute the juices contained inside the meat. Read More

I seldom marinate a quality steak but when I do I do pierce the steak with a fork to allow the marinade to do it's work and I have never had a steak lose it's juices or dry out when poked PRIOR to cooking. And I have grilled many many great steaks in my life. One hint: For perfect medium-rare steaks grill for 10 minutes per inch -- 2 minutes on the first side and the remaining time on the other side.

I didn't use high-quality root beer, just whatever I could find. Also used a heaping spoonful of minced garlic in place of the garlic salt and fresh herbs instead of dried. It was amazing! Made the meat super tender and juicy. Flavor wasn't overpowering but added just enough to make the entire table say, "mmmmmmmm!" at the first bite. Great marinade! Read More

This marinate was amazing! Our steaks tasted so good I savored every bite. The only difference I did not have root beer so I subbed with Coke.It was still delicious and I would do it this way again! Absolutely perfect! Read More

We used an eye of round steak which is a cheaper cut of meat. This had such a good flavor and the cheaper cut of meat was quite tender. I marinated overnight. I can't wait to try this on a better cut of meat. I omitted the garlic salt and used minced garlic in the jar and onion powder for the onion salt otherwise everything was as directed. Read More

Our steaks were juicy and tender. This marinade certainly enhanced the flavor of the meat. We loved that none of the ingredients overpowered the steak. Read More

Mmmmm....Such a gooooood steak! I made a few changes because I lacked supplies. I subbed onion salt for half a chopped onion subbed the rootbeer for coke and subbed the teryaki for soya sauce. And it still turned out delicous. Oh and I also sprinkled a bit of steak spice just cause we prefer a bit more peppery taste. It was so juicy and tender! Will definately use again! Read More
