This marinade is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day as well as any other day of the year.  It’s perfect for any type of meat, including rib eye, sirloin, skirt steak, and flank steak.  The tougher the cut, the longer you can let it marinate, anywhere from 6-12 hours.

A 2-3 lb size of your choice of meat is recommended, but you can adjust the marinade quantities if you want to go larger or smaller.
