My husband used this marinade last night on some nice looking rib eye steaks and it absolultely ruined them. WAY too much vinigar - completely overpowered out the flavor of the meat. There are other maninade recipes in here that are quite good. Stay away from this one!


This is actually a really good marinade for rib eyes, but DON'T use all that vinegar and follow the instructions on timing. You really only need enough red wine vinegar to coat the steaks which is about 1/4 the amount (depending on how big they are). I put everything into a zip loc bag and let set in the fridge for an HOUR turning it a couple of times - then disgarded the marinade. Let the steaks come to room temperature and then grill. This way you get a nice hint of vinegar and the other flavors also come through - another big plus is the steaks come out tender and juicy.


I read the ratings about some people not liking this because the vinegar was too strong but I only let it marinade for about 45 minutes and then let it cook on low heat for about 45 minutes and it came out so tender! It was definatly a hit and I plan to make it again!
