  1. Hi Kathleen,
    We really like barbecuing flank steak and this sounds like a great marinade. Happy Canada Day to all you Canadians!!!

  2. Comment on my own recipe post. Is this OK? Dinner was delish! One big error! OPPPPS! I forgot to take a picture. Life is crazy busy around here and I had little and big helpers in the kitchen tonight. Made for great fun. But.... you must try it. The neighbours will be hanging off their decks wondering what is on the BBQ. I'm enjoying glancing at all the recipes, and look forward to having time to really sit down and enjoy posting and reading all the recipes and comments. Kathy

  3. Oh Kathleen. This sounds yummy...and this coming from a quasi vegetarian! Hmmm...always looking for marinade recipes that I can manage and this looks worth a real try! And a whole menu along 'to boot'. Terrific...maybe in the cards for a Canada Day bbq for my guys! Thx.

  4. Hi Kathy,

    Well, there may have been helpers in the kitchen, big and little, but I'm guessing that at least PART of the reason there's no picture is that it looked and smelled SO GOOD that it never entered your mind once the steak came in off the grill!

    Either that or you needed to hurry up and eat it before the neighbors showed up with their bibs and forks! : D

    I think I'll be having flank steak tonight. . .

  5. I can attest to the fact that this is the best marinade. Kathy gave it to me and I have passed it on as well. One of us is bound to make it again soon and then the picture will appear. . mouth's will be watering.

  6. oh our boys love steak.....sounds like a must try.

  7. Kathleen...please tell me what a layered green salad sounds it? Email it? Yum

  8. Picture was inserted later and as you can see we enjoyed some stuffed BBQ peppers with this as well. The recipe will come from it's rightful owner soon. Kathy

  9. Kathy, I made this marinade for chicken thighs last night and they were very good! A nice marinade that doesn't easily burn on the BBQ.

  10. So simple but really delicious! I will definitely be making this one again. I did however, substitute grass fed beef instead of more common grain fed beef. Steak Recipes like this can be more nutritious as grass fed beef is lower in fat and calories and high in omega 3 acids and beta-carotene. I work with La Cense Beef which sells 100 percent grass fed beef. If you have yet to try, I would highly recommend it!
