Recipe Notes

Do not remove marinate from tops of steak. When you flip them they will fall of off and burn up while grilling. Continuing to flavor steaks.
Use a steak thermometer to get steaks to minimum required temp. for rare, and above.
We like our steaks medium well but, you can see the temp. charts via link on post for steak grill temps.
