This is excellent for flavoring and tenderizing steaks! It is very easy to make and stores well for a week.

How to Make Grilling Marinade / Sauce


  1. Put all ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Turn heat down ans simmer for 1/2 an hour. Let cool. Put into 1 quart canning jar (any jar with a lid will do). Refrigerate until needed. Keeps well for about a week.
  2. When ready to use, Put the desired amount into a bowl along with a little water to thin it out if needed. Place meat in the bowl. Coat the meat well. Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  3. Put the marinated meat on the grill and baste with this marinade a few times while cooking.
  4. *** This is very tasty and helps tenderize the meat.

    *** I use this on beef steaks and pork steaks.
