  1. WAY TOO SALTY. I was suspicious that it had too much salt and the results verified it. It also had too much liquid smoke in it. It does not need the regular salt and the liquid smoke needs to be cut by 1/2. The steak was marinated for 12 hours and probably would have been - Read more ...
  2. Very very salty! This recipe has potential but needs tweaked a bit.
  3. We let our frozen chicken breasts sit in this marinade all day and cut them up into strips before baking. Wonderful! Thanks! We will use this marinade often.
  4. For me the flavor is too strong to use as a marinade and I only marinated my steak for 45 minutes! Think it would work better as a sauce to baste your meat with while cooking. The flavor is good 'am trying to think of a way to tone it down a bit.

  9. We halved the recipe and marinaded two 5-ounce filets for about 2 hours and they were incredibly delicious. It was pretty salty which I love but you might want to put 1/2-3/4 the amount of salt in it if you like yours less salty.
