"I prepared this marinade today for our steaks. I grilled our steaks outside on the grill and warn to watch closely. Because this marinade contains brown sugar, it flames up easily. I caught it before it burnt the steak up but one side of the steak was charred. The steaks were saved and very good. It was a tad sweet for me but that is just me. Next time I will cut back on the brown sugar. Otherwise the marinade was delicious."
