Being semi-retired I can't justify ribeyes every time I want a steak. I found very thick sirloins at my favorite market for $3.75 a pound. Normally don't like sirloins as they can be a tough cut but I had a plan. I had recently purchased a Food Saver at Costco that included the marinade container and decided to road test it along with using a Jaccard. The steaks were about 1 1/2" thick but the Jaccard easily pierced them. Tossed in the container with Yoshidas Original marinade, hooked it up to the Food Saver & sucked the air out with the handy dandy hose. The theory being the vacumn created helps the marinade penetrate and shortens the marinade time. I gotta tell you, it worked like a charm! Preheated my el cheapo gas grill and tossed on the steaks. Flipped after about 10 minutes...first side looking real good. About another 5 minutes on side two and stuck my instant read in....125 IT. Pulled off the grill & let rest 15 minutes while the spuds & garlic bread finished. One of the best steaks I've ever eaten at about half the price of ribeyes. Tender, juicy, delicious pink beef with the Yoshida taste very pronounced throughout. Didn't need the A-1 at all. Highly recommend a Jaccard if you don't have one...wil be using this technique again with a chuckie or tri-tip. GF loved it....I was happy
just became my favorite gadget.....turned that sirloin into one great steak
oops, messy marinade container...operator error....included with the unit @ Costco....worked GREAT
nice color after only a 6 hour marinade....hoping for the best at this point
baker getting happy in that beef juice
