  1. Combine the olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, rosemary, steak seasoning, and steak sauce in the container of a food processor or blender. Process until well blended.
  2. Prick steaks on both sides with a fork, and place in a shallow container with a lid. Pour marinade over steaks, cover, and refrigerate at least 3 hours, or overnight.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, or light charcoal, and wait until coals are completely white. Soaked wood chips may be added to the coals when ready for a smoky flavor, if you like.
  4. Remove steaks from marinade, and discard the marinade. Lightly oil the grilling surface, and place steaks on the grill. Cover, and grill steaks for about 10 minutes on each side, or to your desired degree of doneness.

Okay, this is my third time making this marinade and I've decided no salt is required. With the salt in the soy sauce and steak seasoning there's already plenty. FINALLY I'VE GOT IT JUST RIGHT. Mmmmmmmmmmmm, this is great! THIS IS 1ST REVIEW I'm not a rosemary fan, so instead opted for 1/2 T. tarragon and 1/2 T. thyme. I wish I had read the reviews before making, don't get me wrong this has exceptional flavor, but way way way too salty. I could practically feel my ankles swelling. I'm wondering if maybe it should have been 2 teaspoons of salt rather then two tablespoons? With the soy sauce (which is already salty) it was a bit of a salt overkill, but I will definitely make it again, and again and again, just cut back the sodium.

Ohhh Boy this one is salty!! Just looking at the recipe and knowing that steak seasoning and soy sauce are both extremely salty I did not add the 2 tbsp of salt listed and it was still way tooo much... and I love my salt. I am going to try this again since I did like the flavour but I'm going to eliminate the steak seasoning and use low sodium soy. I think it'll be what I was expecting then.

While no marinade will ever compare to using no marinade at all, this one was particularly excellent. Given that the marinade ingredients were very similar to the seasonings Hubs uses for his grilled steaks, I kind of suspected it would be. I used fresh rosemary rather than dried and eliminated the salt completely. The salt called for was not only unnecessary, but extraordinarily excessive, which is why this recipe falls one star short of perfect. Otherwise, a rich and flavorful marinade that definitely complemented, rather than overpowered, our steaks.

This was excellent! I just put dumped the marinade into a Ziploc, put the steak in, sealed and turned every now and then. I didn't like the idea of pricking the steak because I didn't want to loose ANY juices so I found that marinating over night or at least 8 hours worked great. I also added some liquid smoke and replaced half of the Worcestershire sauce with red wine, just my personal preference. However, I don't think the salt and pepper are necessary in the marinade, just add it later after cooking if desired.

Wow these soaked up the marinade and were so good! Took the advice of other reviewers and left out the salt completely and used low sodium soy sauce. I added a little brown sugar. These were great!

TERRIBLY SALTY! The steak were tender by marinating, but completely unedible---which is more than disappointing when you're working with steaks that cost 10 bucks a piece. I would also not use rosemary--unless it is pureed. The rosemary was tough like pine needles in this dish.

This was the greatest tasting steak I have had in a long time. I purchased a T-Bone and only left it merinate for an hour and a half but man it was good. I did take the advise of others and left out the salt.

This was good. I would reccomend halfing the salt and adding two tablespoons of brown sugar, whaich would make this recipe a true five star.
