Meat-lovers’ Marinade

For years, I had been using one tried-and-true marinade for flank steak, but then I saw this recipe in The Junior League Centennial Cookbook. It sounded interesting, and I had all the ingredients, so I thought I would give it a try on some tri-tip for a dinner with good friends this past spring.
