A beef marinade--quick, simple, good
an easy and very good marinade for beef (or lamb). I LOVE thyme especially with red meat. For those who dislike soy sauce (hi oldcoot) I think that you could substitute some red wine and still turn out some great meat:
proportions (per 1 or 2 pounds of meat):
1 half small onion, chopped
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp cooking oil (your choice on the type)
2 tbsp vinegar (your choice on the type)
4 tsp fresh thyme, or 2 tsp dried
2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
1 tsp black pepper
--combine all ingredients and marinate at least 2 hours.
Wine in a box is better than no wine at all.
