#62 - Make a steak marinade to be proud of

This turned out pretty damn good. Worked well on about a pound and a half of rib eye steaks.

I chop 2 cloves of garlic and add 1 tablespoon of ground salt. Then crushed them together to form a paste.

In a separate bowl, I mixed the following ingredients:

1.5 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1.5 tablespoons extra virgin olivie oil
1 teaspoon worchestshire sauce
Squeezed juice from 1 lemon
1.5 tablespoon chilli powder
1.5 teaspoons cumin
0.5 teaspoons ground all spice
1.5 teaspoons honey

I mixed all that together, along with the garlic/salt paste. That formed the meat rub. I rubbed this all over the meat, and made sure to get it into all the cracks and crevices. I then placed the meat into large freezer bag and poured the rest of the mixture on top. I then let it marinate for 20-40 minutes.

Dude! Yesterday, I bought two beautiful rib eye steaks, I used your recipe and marinated the shit out of those steaks. Then I warmed up the grill, almost until the metal bars were red with heat. I dropped the steaks on and they sizzled and smoked. After the initial singe to both sides I moved it to the back of the grill to cook slowly for a couple of minutes. And then I ate them. They were delicious. Nice work. It truly is a Steak seasoning to be proud of.
