We love steaks here and make them often, especially in warm weather on the grill! Sometimes we use a great steak marinade and sometimes we use a simple dry rub.
Our favorite steaks to use a marinade on are the slightly tougher cuts of meat like flank, brisket, London broil and skirt steak. The marinade really adds an amazing flavor and helps to create a more tender steak!
