Magical Mystery Steak Marinade

Marinated Ribeye w/ Horseradish Mashed Potatoes and Squeaky Mushrooms

This is a magical marinade. It is made up of only 4 ingredients but is packed full of flavor and does a great job tenderizing just about any cut of beef. Be forewarned though. If you leave the beef in for much more than 20 minutes to 30 minutes it will begin to break down the meat too far.I happened to use a ribeye steak (in my opinion the best steak out there) but just about any steak will work well. If you do use tenderloin be sure to keep a close eye on the time. This marinade will break it down very quickly.

Feel free to add other ingredients to tweak this to fit your taste. Some green onion, sesame oil and 5 spice powder will send it on an asian getaway. A bit of brown sugar and pineapple juice and its off to the islands. Some cumin, chili powder and a bit of chipotle tabasco and it becomes a trek to the southwest. Use your imagination and follow your tastebuds.
