I rarely marinate steaks. (except for skirt steak or flap meat) I have been served to many steaks ruined by marinade. (Italian dressing comes to mind) I had a friend over for dinner, she is an incredibly fussy eater. I served grilled top sirloin, rare for the family, medium rare for her. She said that the steak was amazing and asked what I seasoned it with. I loved the look on her face when I said "nothing, but the kiss of the fire".

I save the brine for me...(beer) beef is too dense for it to do anything..MAYBE a finishing sauce or a Merlot reduction for a tri tip / sirloin/strips...HOWEVER a properly cooked piece of beef is simple...salt...pepper..and maybe garlic / oinion / rosemary all beef should be kisd..(keep it simple dummy) as I am too lazy to get caried away with a great meat....

YUP--Poll is Farked up!

I thought I was voting to NOT marinade on any, because I don't.

I don't marinate my steak. Sure, I could, but I don't think it's necessary. If I bought cheap steaks I might but I don't buy cheap steaks......ever. I do, however, plan on marinating some carne asada soon!

Sorry, but for this poll to make any sense, there needs to be a "none of the above" option. (which I would then select) :)

Although... I would like to experiment with marinating in soy sauce as I have recently read (not on this forum, although it could be out there) that it mimics the flavor profile of dry-aging.

I really don't know whether the poll is positive or negative. Of the cuts that you list, the only one I do marinate is the sirloin. I certainly also eat it without marinade, but if I am making any type of kebabs, bulgogi, teriyaki, what have you, I will take top sirloin as my first choice as it has a beefy flavor that can survive a marinade, tastes great under different cooking conditions (like well done for bulgogi) and it is a good cut.
