Marinade for Meat

I'm very old-fashioned about the way I plan my meals.  I honestly feel like we should have a meat, a vegetable or two on the side and some kind of bread.  That doesn't always happen.  But especially when Little Devil is home for dinner I act like I'm June Cleaver and serve her a dinner from the 4 food groups.  Trying to change up the routine and vary the main course is always a challenge.  That means lots of different cuts of meat, prepared in different ways.  Having a go-to marinade for a package of meat lying around your freezer is never a bad idea.  You can throw your meat in with this marinade the night before and when you get home from work, it's ready to grill up.  Add a vegetable and a pretty salad.  Don't forget the bread.  Put on your pearls and a dress, run the vacuum and then serve dinner right up.
This is how I take
1 big steak and feed all three of us.
The marinade line-up.
Melt butter.  Add steak sauce.

Stir in brown sugar.
Add in the pop.  I used Sprite
because that was what we had in the fridge.

Add red wine vinegar.
Stir in onion and garlic powder.
Season meat generously on both sides
with salt and pepper.
Cover and marinate overnight.
We grilled.  This was a one-pound
boneless sirloin steak.
After Mr. Devilish grilled it,
we let it rest for 10 minutes and then
thinly sliced it.  Yum!

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Place meat in a shallow dish and season generously with salt and pepper.  Pour marinade over meat.  Cover well and marinate overnight.  Grill or prepare in your usual way.
