I thought this was wonderful. It came out juicy (despite the scoring) and tender. This was part of the same cut of meat I used for another recipe, and that one did not come out juicy and tender. I let it marinate for quite a few hours. From reading the other reviews... I'd have to say I understand why lots of people would find this salty but unfortunately I happen to be a salt addict. Plus I love the tanginess of soy sauce. So if you like tangy, this is great. If you don't, this is probably not your recipe. And probably your average person should cut down on the salt. Every once in a while I find it necessary to add certain comments: ZeroCreature (an apt name), not that you'll ever see this, but you are quite insulting and egotistical. Do people not have the right to just plain not like a recipe w/out your permission or insulting opinion about it? There are at least 2 expert cooks who gave this a 1 or 2, and I'm quite sure they know their behind from a hole in the ground.

Besides being way to salty, this steak reminded me of sausage which I do not like either. I was very disappointed with this recipie. Too bad because it was so easy to make. After taking one bite, my family decided to have pizza instead.

This was soooo good and easy the longer you let it sit the better. I used an already tenderized steak, That made it even better. I was getting a little sick of the sauce and gravy thing this was a great change of pace.

I would use a little less salt for my own taste. Will try it with sirloin next time I make it.

Finding a marinade that will make steak tasty enough and tender enough for my father to eat it without complaint - in fact, with high praise! - is impossible. Or so I thought! I used this base with some modification - I used three cloves of garlic sent through a press (we like things smelly and delicious around here!), a cup of homemade tomato sauce, and Italian seasoning blend instead of just oregano. I also made it a wet marinade (with the full cup of sauce) instead of a wet rub and kept it in a Ziploc in the fridge for about four hours before broiling it. Dad compared it to the Outback... I'll take it!

Wow, this was good. We raise our own beef and after years of not liking the tougher round steak, I've found the recipe to make it into a favorite. It was very tender and favorful. Would possibly reduce salt and I did dab on some oil prior to grilling. This perhaps made the rub a little more saucy as well as keep it from sticking.

For those who think this recipe is too salty: it's probably your brand of soy sauce. Go with low sodium soy sauce, or find one that is balanced to your tastes. Cheap, crappy soy sauce is often very salty. It's one of those things you simply can NOT skimp on. This recipe is quite good if you know your behind from a hole in the ground about the ingredients.

This was very, very good. Didn't really score the meat but did marinade for about 24hrs. After reading some of the reviews I didn't add all the salt only about a 1t. but I guess it all depends on how much meat you are using. Didn't come out saltly, just perfect. My whole family enjoyed it and like I've said before on other reviews, my 5yr old son is very picking and he asked for seconds.
