Cook's Note:

I use this for London broil but it is good on any cut of beef. Marinate beef 24 to 48 hours. Grill until desired doneness.

Great base, yet lacking. The first time I made it I followed the directions and it was a bit salty, but I could tell it would have potential with a few changes. The second time, I cut out the mustard, added W.Sauce,fresh basil,and 3 cloves of minced garlic. This addition makes the marinade heavenly and its now a go to for me when grilling steaks. I also would never use vegetable oil in a marinade as its too thick, olive oil always works best in meat marinades and cut it way down to like 1/4 of a cup. Read More

I found it too salty. I definitely recommend marinating for 12 hours or more. The lemon juice is important as its acidity will tenderize tougher cuts of beef. Read More

This was a great all purpose marinade. I used it for kebobs I'd cut from a lowly chuck roast and let them marinate all day before Mr. LTH grilled them to perfection. Great flavor tender and really made a chuck roast pop w/out having to slow cook it. THANKS for the recipe! The only changes I made were to 1/2 the recipe and replaced dijon w/yellow per personal preference. Read More

I've never made a marinade before, and always just used a premade, but decided to get a little fancy today. Followed the recipe exactly, forked the *** out of my inside round roast and let it marinate for 6-8 hours this morning. Took it out of the marinade, rubbed all over with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper and seared it. Braised in the oven at low heat sitting in beef broth. SUPER YUMMY! Roast was moist and very tender and forked apart easily, and the outside pieces had a WONDERFUL flavour. Gravy was superb (though again, I didn't cook it in the marinade.) Hubby says it's the best roast I've ever made! Definitely a repeat! Read More

It is the 4th of July and I wanted a great marinade. I made this marinade this morning with the original recipe. The beef was in the marinade for 8 hours. I have to say that this recipe was delicious! The flavors stood up to the chuck roast that I cut up for the kabobs and everybody loved it. I want to try receipe this with shrimp next! yum! Read More
