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.

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.

This was a Wonderful marinade! I was all out of Dijon mustard so I used regular and it turned out fabulous! Thanks for the great recipe. I used it on sirloin fillets and they were very very tender. My whole family devoured all of it!

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!

I used this marinade for top round beef kabobs (reserved some of the marinade to use for the rice I served them with) and marinated the kabobs with the rest of the marinade overnight and then grilled them medium rare - YUM! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe!

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!
