Simple Garlic and Thyme Steak Marinade

Simple Garlic and Thyme Marinade

6 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1/2 cup red wine
Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper

Smash and coarsely chop the garlic cloves.  Combine the garlic, oil, red wine and thyme leaves in a bowl or zippered bag.  Add steaks and turn to coat.  Place in refrigerator and marinate for 4 - 6 hours, turning occasionally to ensure an even marinate.

Heat the grill to medium high and oil the grates lightly.

Remove the steak from the marinade and let the excess drip off.  Discard the marinade.  Season the steaks with salt and pepper.  Grill, covered, until done to your liking.  Allow 12 -16 minutes for medium rare.
