Whether your static lining into a hot L.Z., defending the freedom overseas, eating those (delicious) M.R.E. rations in the field, every solider dreams of getting back to the states with family and friends, and enjoying that great American 4th of July pastimes of fireworks and grilling out! 

Any red white and blue blooded American knows the pleasure of a perfectly grilled steak! Nothing in life is like the taste of the succulent tasting marbled medium rare beauty that is,

First, Start by laying out the steak on a cutting board and using a tenderizing hammer to work the toughness out of the steak (do both sides)

Second, with a sharp butcher's knife lightly score the steak, making several cuts on both sides (helps when marinading and when cooking)

Third, put a small amount of "Dale's Steak Seasoning" in a large enough bowl to fit the steak to soak, place your steak in the bowl and then continue adding the rest of the marinade. I like to work the steak around a bit to get the marinade deep into the meat.

IMPORTANT: Let the steak sit in the marinade for about an hour.

I have always felt that cutting your steak up before you eat it makes it dry. I cut each bite as I go. They look great though!

I always avoided cutting it up for that reason but this Dale's stuff keeps it really juicy.
