Great recipe. However, if you plan on marinading for a long time make sure to use a very low sodium soy sauce or else the steaks will be far to salty. Otherwise great.

My husband said "Not so good" but I think I can add a few things to give it some kick. One thing is for certain - the meat WAS tender!

Excellent! I only marinated for about 3 hours and it was still really good. I used real chopped garlic, rubbed it into the steak and about 1/4 of a cup of brown sugar. Everyone loved it.

It came out really good. Way better then I was expecting. I marinated the steaks over night. They were filled with flavor all the way through.
