The key to a good marinade is to combine an acid, a fat and spices. Vinegar, lemon juice, fruit juice, milk, yogurt and wine are excellent acids. Use any cooking oil for the fat (remember, olive oil tends to congeal in the refrigerator). Then add your favorite seasonings – be generous because the flavor will diminish considerably.
1Combine marinade ingredients. Marinate beef steak in marinade in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight.
2Remove steak; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 25 to 28 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning occasionally. (Do not overcook.) Let steak stand 10 minutes. Carve into thin slices.
Place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 27 to 29 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.)
