    Excellent!! First time grilling steak in over 20 years. I do not eat meat. My husband killed 2 steaks without using A1! He has already requested steak again for NYE! 😊

    I try a new marinade every time we grill. My husband says This one needs to be my go-to marinade. My kids 7 and 4 yrs old love it too. Fast and easy.

    amazing! i did add a small dash of lemon juice for a little extra acidity since i was only marinading for a few hours before tossing them on the grill.

    I've used this marinade for London Broil and it was amazing. I am making it again tonight. My husband and I love the taste of Asian Marinades. I also used sesame oil instead of olive oil. It is simply delicious. This is a marinade I will use for as long as I'm cooking for my family and myself. Tastes unbelievable. love it!!!!!

    Won’t use any other marinade ever again! Did change it up a little and everyone loves it! I did a quarter cup of Worcestershire and a quarter cup of Soy Sauce.

    Very delicious! Added 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic. Sweet and salty! If you want to taste the meat flavour very well I recommend letting it marinade for 4 hours, depending on the size of your steak. I had thick rib steaks and left mine for 6 hours and tasted very little meat flavour (which I liked) Will definitely use this recipe again!

    it covered the flavor of the steak a little more than i would have liked, the marinade is good though i just like to taste the beef more

    So delicious! Definitely turning into a regular in our house. I let the steak marinade overnight! Paired with sautéed veggies & mashed potatoes.

    I had high expectations but lacking an ingredient and using it on "eye of round small steak did not turn out as well. as I had hoped. I cooked it on an electric grill also. So I will try it again with thicker steak, all ingredients and gas grill next time.

    This recipe is so good! Loved the flavor. We used it on boneless skinless chicken thighs and made chicken teriyaki with the Panda Express sauce, omg the best Teriyaki. Was great on steak I’ve made this 2x on steaks and 2x on chicken. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Whole family loved it. A lot of recipes you have to change one or two things this recipe I didn’t change anything. Side note: I did use sodium free soy sauce!

    This marinade is all kinds of awesome! Very easy to make and full of flavor. Thick enough to really hang on through the grilling process. I've made it with several different types of steak and it works for all. Highly recommended.
