We love steak in this house, and I especially love to pump them full of flavor with a good marinade. I found this recipe in Cooking Light, of course, and the whole family really loved it. The only regret I have is not saving part of the marinade as a dipping sauce, the hubby got to them too fast and I didn't get a chance! So, make sure you save part of the marinade as a dip, and then let me know how it was! AND, if you want a great fried rice recipe to go with it, check out this recipe at Tummy Yummies, it's a winner everytime!
