We've used the same tri tip steak rub recipe for years. We've made this BBQ Steak recipe a few times now and it is our new favorite. The only change I made was I used dried rosemary because I didn't have fresh rosemary on hand. I doubled the batch of marinade and froze half the batch for a later time. I made the second (frozen) batch last night and it turned out just as well as the first time.

I marinated this meat overnight and it was much too strong and overpowering.

Goodbye to all store bought marinades! This recipe is actually listed as BBQ but it works great even if you are broiling or pan frying your steaks. It's really easy too .. put everything in the blender and your done! For a sweeter variation, add two tablespoons of brown sugar.

This makes the best steak I have ever had but take my advice and delete the salt! The only (minor) complaint I had on this delicious marinade was that it was a little salty. The soy sauce provides enough salt. Try this once and you will love it.

Excellent steak marinade! I cut the recipe in half for a 1 lb. sirloin steak. Since the type of vinegar wasn't specified in the recipe I used red wine vinegar. I always used low sodium soy sauce and cut the amount of salt in half. I let this marinate all day. I put it on the grill with a fresh sprig of rosemary to give it a little smokiness and it was wonderful. I can't wait to experiment with other typically tougher cuts of meat to see what happens.....

Very good marinade. I made this for a group on a camping trip and everyone raved. Most asked for the recipe. One person, out of 10 mentioned that there was a bit too much vinegar. Figuring the others were too polite to tell me, I cut the vinegar by 2 Tbsp for our next dinner party. No complaints and I thought it tasted better this way.

I used balsamic vinegar and it was the best marinated steak we'd ever had! I have a large rosemary in the garden and I'm always looking for ways to use it fresh. Don't be intimidated by the amt. of vinegar, this is a GREAT recipe!

I blended the ingredients in a blender and it came out great! I poured it over our steak and let it sit for a day. Then my husband grilled it and the steak was excellent.
