Balsamic Worcestershire Beef Marinade

This is a quick marinade that you can use on steaks or roasts, or if you're feeling adventurous, you can mix it into ground beef for a meatloaf or hamburgers. Don't let its simpleness fool you, it packs a good punch of flavor.

Balsamic Worcestershire Beef Marinade
makes enough marinade for 2 lbs of meat

What You'll Need:
     1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
     1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
     2 Tbs soy sauce
     1 tsp dry mustard (or 2 tsp wet mustard)
     2 cloves garlic, minced
     1 shallot, minced
     2 tsp pepper

The Process:
     Mix all ingredients together. Pour over meat. Let marinate, refrigerated, for at least two hours. Turn occasionally to ensure even coating. Cook meat as desired.

Because of the soy sauce, I don't add any extra salt, but add a little salt if you feel inclined. Next time I make hamburgers, I am definitely going to use this marinade in it instead of my usual spice combination.

Recipe for those side dish potatoes is coming soon!
