To marinate or not to marinate.....

There's nothing like a big juicy steak - cooked just the way you like it - on the family BBQ.

But sometimes you just want to add a little extra something.......

The best way to marinade is to put steak and marinade in a resealable bag, and massage them well. If marinading for more than 1 hour, then refrigerate, on a plate to catch drips.
