Meet the Sullivans: Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

As I said a few weeks ago, I am not an experienced steak cooker. I saw this recipe in my inbox and I thought that maybe I could mask my terrible sense of knowing when exactly a steak is done by making sure the flavor is great. Alas, I still over cooked the steak a bit (according to Keith, who prefers his steaks almost raw), but I blame that on being pregnant and the fact that I have to my meat cooked through. Anyway, I digress, this marinade was fantastic and just plain tasty. We enjoyed it very much!

Ingredients 
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2 (1/2 pound) rib-eye steaks
Directions
1. In a medium bowl, mix the vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, honey, olive oil, ground black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, salt, liquid smoke, and cayenne pepper.
2. Place steaks in a shallow glass dish with the marinade, and turn to coat. For optimum flavor, rub the liquid into the meat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days.
3. Preheat grill for medium-high to high heat.
4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill steaks 7 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Discard leftover marinade.
I served the steak alongside homemade garlic mashed potatoes (I like to use yukon gold) and green beans (I cheat and use the pre-washed and trimmed kind).
