Repeat Recipe

Dino’s "Oh Ma Gahd Marinahd"

Dino came up with this marinade recipe a while ago, while doing an impression of John Travolta saying “oh my god”. We figured it only made sense that he would pronounce “marinade” ridiculously as well. So this turned out to be a really flavorful marinade for steaks. The only change he made to his original recipe was to omit the turmeric. He didn’t know why he added it last time, and we certainly didn’t miss it. This time around, we got a london broil, and let it marinate for a few hours in the fridge before he grilled it. It turned out better than we remembered! I can’t believe it’s been so long since we made it.
