I like to experiment around with different marinades, yesterday I came up with a concoction that was more than just alright. I’ve used Balsamic vinaigrette dressing before with chicken straight out of the bottle but I doctored it up for our flat iron steak we grilled. I like to use the gallon zip-lock bags to marinade, also we love the “Newman’s Own” brand, the one with Paul Newman’s face on it
This is for beef. For chicken, sub- red wine for white wine, or leave wine out.
(depending of course on how much meat you’re covering,)
- pour in balsamic dressing to cover steak well, at least 1 cup
- add 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- 3-4 tbl. sesame oil
- 3-4 tbl. red wine
- mix well, let steak marinade at least a couple hours. Let sit to room temp. for about 20-30 min before grilling. Salt and pepper to taste.
