Is there something special you do to your steaks to give them that perfect flavor?

Most marinades consist of

1) oil - canola, olive, vegetable, etc.

2) acid - vinegar, citrus juice, wine, etc.

3) seasonings of choice

I usually don't marinade my steaks - I like the flavor of the cooking and the seasonings.

When I do marinade it's oil, vinegar and seasonings - similar to an Italian dressing.

I really don't marinate I use dry rubs. Emeril Lagosse has a really good steak rub that you can get in the markets. If we do marinate it is in Balsamic vineager and alittle olive oil with onions in there to add flavor.

I rarely marinate my steaks, but when I do its because the recipe I'm wanting to try calls for it, so I marinate them in whatever the recipe calls for.

I did try a recipe from that called for marinating the meat. It was originally for pork chops, but I'm sure it could be used on steaks too.

1/4 cup Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
1 Tbsp. Grey Poupon Honey Mustard

Mix well in glass baking dish or large resealable bag. Add meat & refrigerate overnight.

I usually marinade steak in either honey, soy and garlic marinade that I buy. Sometimes I make my own Garlic and Basil Pesto and rub that into the steak before I cook it. Nothings better than a great piece of steak!
