Thankfully memory cards are not damaged when they camera crashes to the floor so I have these Beef Marinade images to share with you!!!!!!

Notes:

  • Use a decent wine for your marinade since it is the main flavor, and you can serve the rest with the meal.
  • I used Dreaming Tree Cabernet Sauvignon, but any deep bodied red wine will work.
  • This marinade will work with any cut of beef.
  • I have included dried herb substitutions in the recipe just in case fresh are not available.
