Awesome Steak Marinade

Recipe by  

"I created this marinade on a whim one day and it was delicious! We usually use it on porterhouse steaks, but I'm sure it's interchangeable. This recipe is more than enough for two large steaks, but can be increased or decreased as needed."

This marinade is good and quick. Couple of warnings though, the brand of steak sauce and dressing you use can drastically change the flavor of your marinade. I have made with both A-1 and Heinz 57. I prefer A-1. Also, I recommend using a zesty italian dressing. It gives your meat a little more kick. This makes a lot of marinade and I used half right away and frooze the other half in a zip lock back with steaks for future use. Final word of warning, be careful this burns easy with the honey in the marinade.

Way too sweet-marinated overnight & had to throw the steak away

I used A-1 steak sauce, Delmonico steaks and marinated 48 hrs because we had to go out the night we planned to have the steaks. Don't know whether it was the quality of the meat, the long marinating time or the recipe, but this was the best steak sauce I've ever had, no question.

One 15 oz. bottle of A-1 sauce equals 1 1/2 cups of steak sauce. I was a little apprehensive of the recipe, because I do not normally use steak sauce. I was afraid the sauce would overpower the flavor of the steak. I was pleasantly surprised! I marinated 3 large T-Bone steaks for 6 hours. After grilling, they were very tender with a mild sweet flavor. My husband loved them! Thanks Kristen!

Very good steak marinade - my husband is a huge fan of A1 so we had to try this. I cut the recipe in half for a good sized sirloin. I still used 1 Tbsp. of low sodium soy sauce and Kraft light italian dressing. I also used 1 clove of minced garlic from the jar vs. garlic powder. I put everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate all day. Perfect with a baked potato!

I have made this recipe several times and each time I get many compliments!! I add a TBSP of teriyaki sauce. I put the marinade and steaks in a ziploc baggie and let them sit overnight in the frige. We learned that you have to watch these steaks cook on the grill very carefully as the honey (we think) causes the steaks to burn if unattended. LOTS of flavor!!! My four-year-old didn't breathe between bites! Kudos Kristen!

Fantastic! I made my own steak sauce using Worsteschire Sauce, ketchup and dijon mustard then added it to this recipe and it was great! Thanks!

This was great! I didn't measure the ingredients, I just guessed at the amounts. Also used a Balsamic Vinaigrette for the dressing. Will be using this recipe again.
