Pawpaw's Steak Grilling Baste and Marinade

Sue L


Adapted from a recipe in the Brett Favre Family cookbook. Baste/marinade can be used for steaks, chicken, ribs, pork chops and other meats as well. Makes one cup of marinade.
These are really tasty- doesn't need a steak sauce. Maybe a grind of black pepper and that's it. Nice, buttery, and juicy. I used rib steaks.
