Peggy Said:Is balsamic vinegar OK to use in a chuck steak marinade?
We Answered:If it is a little too sharp, then use a red wine vinegar. It's in a relativelt small bottle, but still lighter than balsamic. I suggest no to balsamic vinegar seeing as it tends to be really sharp. Red wine vinegar is a lighter version, in the basics, and gives a nice flavor to the marinaded steak.
If you do use it, add a little dijon or brown mustard, about a tsp. of lemon juice. But not sugar, sugar doesn't help all that much. But a tip from another person, always go for the red wine vinegar if called for. But if you need to, or if it is the only thing on hand, no problems.
Rick Said:What would a steak marinade taste like on boneless skinless chicken?
We Answered:I'm guessing it would taste awesome.
Chicken is very flexible.
Whats the risk of one bad dinner, when experimenting in the name of deliciousness?
Nellie Said:How long should I marinade a steak?
We Answered:Depends on the ingredients in the steak marinade you bought. If it contains any type of acid, mostly some sort of vinegar, or citric acid (lime, lemon, etc.) its best to not marinate it any longer than the instructions say. The acid will start to break down your steak and will make it mushy, definitely not good eats. However, if your steak marinade doesn't contain any acid, then feel free to marinate it as long as you like. Most of the time, overnight is best, but you should determine what is practical depending on the marinade itself. If it is some sort of basic steak marinade, then I wouldn't expect too much flavor if you let it marinate longer than needed. If on the otherhand, you have some sort of exotic flavored type marinade, then I would say marinate it longer to better absorb the flavor, so that you can actually taste it.
Bertha Said:Anybody know a good steak marinade for Ribeye?
We Answered:Don't listen to these people. You said that you were "tired of the same old steak" and they just start freaking out that, god forbid, you would marinate a rib-eye. But that's not what you asked. You simply asked for a marinade. I don't want to clutter this up by putting the recipes on my answer, so I'm just going to put down links to one of my favorite recipe sites. Here ya go!

Glenda Said:Steak Marinade?
We Answered:You can use just about any kind of beer and yes you can buy single bees from most liquor stores.
I have a different recipie that doesn't have any beer in it that is absolutely delicious.
1 bottle hawiian teriyaki sauce
1/2 red onion finely diced
1/2 red bell pepper finely diced
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
5 cloves garlic minced or 1 Tbsp of garlic powder
1 Tbsp fresh cracked black pepper
1 cup vegetable oil
Place all ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 5 additional minutes. Let cool and pour into a tupperware container or large zip lock bag and add the steak.
Depending on the cut will determine the length of time you leave it in the marinade. For a sirloin I would marinade it for minimum of 1 hour and a maximum of 2 hours.
I hope this helps you on your steak making venture.
