Adel's Red Wine Steak Marinade

Recipe by  

"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!

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!

tasty but i think it had too much going on which is funny because i usually like marinades with a ton of different things in them. also the wine i used was getting old, would want to work with this one again.

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!

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!

Great marinade for fillets. No complaints here about anything!

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.
