Here at Uno Acres, when there is grilling to be done, it's a job for the man of the house.

On Memorial Day, we grilled steaks and ate outside on our deck. It was a beautiful day, and it was nice to share one of our first meals on the deck with Jesse since he worked so hard to help us build the deck.

In honor of the master chef here at Uno Acres, I am sharing our special marinade for steaks.

Uno Acres Steak Marinade
Teriyaki sauce
Brown Sugar (sometimes I substitute fresh honey)
Cilantro (sometimes I use this and sometimes I don't, so add it if you like)

Directions:Mix together and marinate meat for at least one hour.

Yes, it's really just that easy to turn your steaks into something memorable without all the artificial ingredients that bottled marinade contains.

Oh, and it tastes even better when someone else does the cooking.

Oooh oooh!!! How much (approx) of each?!

Hey Itsy - long time no see!

I can't give real measurements - just guesses, but it's really almost fail proof. It kind of depends on how many steaks and how big they are.

Teriyaki sauce - enough so that it doesn't all get absorbed into the steaks but so that there is little left when you put the steaks in and turn them once or twice - probably about 1/2 cup or so, but it will vary a lot depending on the number of steaks.

Garlic - about 2 cloves or a couple of hearty teaspoons of preminced stuff. But we are garlic lovers.

Brown Sugar (sometimes I substitute fresh honey) - probably about 2 tablespoons or so.

Cilantro (sometimes I use this and sometimes I don't, so add it if you like) - about 1 teaspoon or so.

Good luck! Hope you like them!

How's that little man doing? Getting big by now I guess?
