Do you marinate your steak?

Firegoat | Jun 9, 201307:46 AM     108

I have always been a minimalist steak cooker. Salt/pepper perhaps. Brisket, yes I marinated the crap out of that. But otherwise not much.

I admit I've fallen in love with Daddy Hinkles wet/dry marinade. Love the original flavor. Southwest is good but can be a little overpowering. I've found myself doing steaks, even hamburger patties with the stuff. I think it tastes delicious, but I have to wonder if I've fallen off of some culinary cliff and perhaps that is something that is just "not done" by those in the know. I have another friend who swears by the Jack Daniels wet marinade as well.

I guess I'm second guessing it because I remember when everything was marinated in Italian dressing when I was a kid, then later grew up and read that it actually was not a good idea. On the other and I'd love to audition for Masterchef and break out some Hinkles. Thoughts? I doubt I'll give it up, but I know it's probably not very foodie (hate that term) but it tastes so good.
