Awesome steak marinade

Troubled by all the msg in marinades, I went on a search for easy, delicious ones that I could make. This recipe calls for Worcestershire sauce. If you can’t find any without hydrolized soy protein – a variant of msg – just leave it out. (I did find some at Whole Foods.) It also says to marinade overnight. Being absentminded, I have forgotten numerous times to do that and only marinated the steaks an hour and they still tasted great!

2 medium shallots, minced

1 TB dried thyme leaves

3 TB organic sugar

1/4 c. soy sauce

3 TB Worcestershire sauce

2 TB balsamic vinegar

1/3 c. vegetable oil

Combine all ingredients and place in a container with tight-fitting lid with the steaks. Turn to evenly distribute marinade. Marinade up to overnight.
