/4 cup beer or wine or beef broth
1 Tbs. lemon juice or wine vinegar
1 tsp. dijon-type mustard
fresh-ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. dried herbs, thyme, marjoram, etc. (optional)
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. honey or brown sugar
dash of hot sauce (optional)
1 clove garlic, halved

This amount will cover two servings or more of steak. Whisk ingredients together, add garlic, and pour over steak, turning to completely coat all sides of the meat. Let sit in refrigerator, covered, for at least an hour or overnight. Pour off marinade and discard. Grill steak as usual. If grilling in a pan, when you finish cooking the steak, remove from pan and keep warm. Add a little wine or vinegar to the pan and stir up all the juices and bits. Let alcohol or acid evaporate (takes a minute or two) and pour over steak. Delicious!
