   “... Ingredients in a marinade can be varied, but it is important to use
   wine, vinegar, lemon juice, or some acidic liquid to break down the
   connective tissues.  This process will make the steak more tender.
   Remaining marinade ingredients add flavor.” Use a good-quality olive oil or
   walnut oil; add good-quality wine or vinegar and a combination of fresh and
   dried herbs, seasonings, garlic and soy sauce to make a flavorful marinade.
   1.  Place all ingredients in glass screw-top jar; shake vigorously. Arrange
   meat in shallow glass dish; pierce with a fork. Pour marinade over meat;
   turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning
   meat occasionally. 2.  Remove meat from marinade; pat dry. Remove any
   pieces of spices or herbs that may stick to meat. This recipe is a steak
   marinade, but the ingredients can be adapted for other meats using the same
   techniques.
