Chipotle and Espresso Balsamic Grilling Marinade
4 lbs. ribeye steak (1 lb. each steak)
1 cup Seasons Chipotle Infused Olive Oil
1 1/2 cups Seasons Dark Espresso Balsamic
3 cloves garlic
1 small shallot
2 tsp Seasons Espresso Infused Salt
2 Tbsp Seasons Chipotle Powder
1 Tbsp cumin
1 tsp salt (to taste)
Combine all marinade ingredients together and emulsify using a food processor. Save half of the marinade in a separate container for a basting liquid. Place the steaks in an airtight container and pour remaining marinade over it, letting it marinate for 4 hours in the refrigerator.
In the meantime, mix all dry rub ingredients together. When the steaks have finished marinating, remove it from the marinade and blot off any extra liquid, discarding used marinade. Cover with the dry rub, and get ready to grill!
While grilling, brush the steaks with the the separate container of basting liquid to infuse the sweet flavor of the balsamic marinade.
