This was a marinade that became better as the meal progressed. We love the flavor of a good steak and rarely add more than salt and pepper. At first, I was put off a bit by the slightly sweet flavor of the balsamic vinegar. When I was on my last bite, I was thinking, this is a great flavor. For the outside grill, though, 1/3 cup of olive oil made the grill flare up, and the steaks were well marbled, so I would not use that amount of olive oil again. DS is not a mustard fan, so I cut back on the mustard a bit, and I totally forgot to add the liquid smoke (didn't miss it, due to the outside grill). Other than that, it was a nice change from our usual steak dinner. Thanks for the idea!
The marinade also tenderizes the steak. Any marinade with acid (tomato, vinegar, citrus juices, pineapple juice, etc.) will tenderize. I leave my meat in marinade over night or all day, but no longer. If you leave it too long the meat texture changes and gets "mushy". And don't try to save calories by omitting the oil. Your meat will turn out dry. I don't have an outdoor grill, so I grill in my G Foreman grill. For room temperature meat and 1" thick meat, I cook for 6 minutes on preheated grill. Perfect medium rare, tender & juicy!
If you have had problems with getting steaks tender, look no further with this recipe. This recipe is easy and it was a great hit for Father's Day. I grilled boneless ribeye steaks yum yum.
Easy and yummy!
This was fantastic!!!! Next time I want to make little cuts into the steak I get so the flavor can soak through the whole of the meat. DEFINITELY worth a try!
