Pretty tasty stuff. I didn't blend this and really can't see why you'd have to. Just throw it into a ziploc bag and mix is up. I cut the marinade in half because I had just two steaks. I used a bunch of minced garlic instead of garlic powder and also skipped on the hot sauce. I ended up letting it sit in the fridge with the steaks (top sirloin) for about 3 hours. When it was time to make dinner, I took the steaks out of the bag and then threw in 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms until they were well coated and dropped all of that into a pan. I cooked the mushrooms until most of the liquid was cooked out on medium high heat. Grilled the steaks to medium rare, then served the mushrooms on top! Turned out very flavorful and very delicious. Thanks!

This marinade was amazing. I really wasn't sure about the ingredients (didn't want teriyaki type), and decided to take a chance based upon the ratings. Boy, was I glad I did. The steaks ended up marinating 3 days (due to changes in plans). They were so tender, and the taste... fabulous. This marinade is very subtle, it really enhances the meat well. I didn't have parsley, so I added a dash of thyme. My DH was extremely happy with the taste, and wants me to use this recipe again and again. ***UPDATE***-I wanted something different for Christmas dinner for 15 people, this was my choice, and everyone raved about how flavorful and tender the steaks were (we used flat iron steaks). I brought the steaks home from the store, fixed the marinade, popped them in the freezer for about a week, then defrosted them Christmas Eve. My DH put them on the BBQ to cook, YUMMM! On a busy day, it was an effortless, but outstanding main dish.

The best marinade that I have ever used. I was very skeptical, aspecially after I blended it. It did not look like it would taste good but it was really really good. I used top sirloin. Highly reccommend this recipe
