Steak Marinade

I haven't posted a recipe in a while -- but this marinade turned out SO YUMMY, I want to share it with you (my imagined friend in cooking)!  I ran out of Worcestershire sauce, which made me come up with something new -- necessity being the Mama of invention and all! This is pretty classic, but I think the molasses gives it a nice extra dimension.

Makes: ½ cup
·         Avocado oil – 1/8 cup  ( or other high heat oil)
·         Balsamic – ¼ cup + 1 T
·         Molasses – 1 T
·         Soy sauce – 1 T or 2 packets
·         Seasonings:
o   1 t salt
o   ½ t pepper
o   1 T Trader Joe’s 21-blend
o   1 t garlic
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.  Place steak pieces in small bowl so marinade covers them.   Even after just half an hour, this is yummy.  Great for broiling or BBQ-ing!

I have an old flame broiler at the bottom of my oven, and I broiled the marinaded steak pieces for 5 minutes per side.  They were on the medium/well-done side, and super flavorful.
