Delicious Product Alert: Dale's Steak Seasoning [my favorite *premade* steak marinade]

I like to make my own marinades. [Like my favorite marinade for beef or chicken.] But sometimes I don't. Actually, a lot of times I don't. When I make steaks I use one of two things: simple salt/pepper/garlic powder OR Dale's Steak Seasoning.

I've loved this marinade since it was introduced to me a few years ago. The best part about it is that it only takes a fraction of the time of most marinades to flavor the meat throughout. Seriously, for thick steaks. Put them in 30 minutes to an hour MAX before you're planning on grilling. For thinner cuts, put them in when you light the grill.

If you over marinate, they will be way. too. salty. They make a low sodium Dale's, but I have a hard time finding it. And to be honest, it is still packed with sodium.

Just for humorous reasons, I would like to point out that the above picture was for a dinner Mr. Picky and I shared. Yeah, just the two of us. The two fatter steaks on the left are very lean thick cut sirloin steaks. The one on the bottom left was 4 oz, and that one was mine. It was a perfect size for me.

The other 3 steaks were Mr. Picky's. Yep. He ate 3 steaks. He amazes me. :)

So try Dale's next time you want a great grilled steak. Just don't over marinate and you'll be in beef heaven. [Where I plan on going when I pass, btw.]
