Saturday Afternoon QUICKIE - Summer Steak Marinade

Weekly Reminder: What is a "QUICKIE" anyway?...hmmmmm, found this online: "Very little foreplay, quick finish. Usually 5 minutes, start to finish.." Perfect! Since I've demonstrated how blog challenged I am this year, a speedy, once a week drop-in is JUST what the doctor ordered (wink!).
So clear your calendar, I'm all yours for 5 minutes every Saturday afternoon...rawr

Let's make some marinade - SIZZLE!...

**Look at my handsome boy helping peel the garlic...**

Summer Steak Marinade for 3-5 lbs. of meat
1/4 cup E.V.O.O - extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsp. Grey Poupon Deli Mustard w/ horseradish
3 tsp. garlic gloves, finely minced
2 tsp. brown sugar
Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to a medium bowl, whisk to combine...

Now, I usually marinade my boneless Top Sirloin steaks for, um, about 4 hours. This is where you have to play with what works for you - I prefer a "stronger" hint of the balsamic...
I have marinaded meat as little as 2 hours, and though it was good...I think the longer the better!

Thanks for the QUICKIE (wink!), I'll see ya next week!
