    Brilliant. I marinatedfor three hours. Sirloin steaks were wonderful. Just off to do tonight’s steak in it again. Thank you x PS if you use a zip lock bag it’s easier to mix and the marinade gets to all parts of the steak.  -  06 Jan 2018


    This is what I have to say about this recipe. I wept with joy at the first bite. Do you know how hard it is to eat and cry at the same time? Yet, I pressed on. After that, I wept with sorrow, because there would be a last bite. Knowing that I would soon finish the succulent tri-tip steak that I had left in the marinade for a full day because I forgot I was going to cook it left me in a pool of tears... it was even harder to chew as I sobbed and sobbed... but I managed, oh yes. I managed. After a few minutes, I awoke from my bittersweet bliss, wiped away my tears and resolved myself to make this recipe... again and again. Oh joy! One thing to mention, though, is that I didn't have worchestershire sauce in the house, so I opted to use a certain brand steak sauce in its place (begins with an "A")as the flavor of that reminds me of the original ingredient. I'll be making this with the W sauce this week. I'll bet it's even tastier... Thanks for inventing it, YOU ROCK!!  -  01 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Should leave out the oil as it prevents the tenderizing effect of the vinegar, oil meat just before grilling, otherwise perfect marinade.  -  29 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
