Balsamic Vinegar Steak Marinade

Jason and I made this for my family yesterday. It was a hit. Keep in mind the cooking time may be less than you are used to as the vinegar starts to cook the steaks as they marinate.

4 New York Strip steaks (or any other tender cut)
3/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped

Combine the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and garlic in a shallow dish. Gently place steaks inside the dish, making sure the marinade covers the steaks. Cover dish and place in fridge, let steak marinate for two to six hours.

When appropriate marinating time is over, take the steaks out of the marinade and set aside. Place marinade inside a small sauce pan and reduce until it forms a thick glaze. Fire up the grill and cook steaks to desired doneness, glazing each steak with the marinade reduction on each turn.
