The Olden Days


I don’t know if any of you remember the restaurant chain Steak and Ale, but I sure do.  It takes me back to my childhood and so many yummy memories.

According to Wikipedia:

Steak and Ale was an American chain of casual dining restaurants, operated by S&A Restaurant Group. Steak and Ale was founded as an independent restaurant chain in Dallas, Texas, on February 26, 1966, by Norman E. Brinker. The remaining 58 locations closed as part of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding on July 29, 2008.


Steak and Ale was the restaurant that we would visit for nice dinners when we had things to celebrate or when special people came into town. 




We didn’t go often, but when we did I always felt like it was a big deal.  I remember the musty smell, the dark lighting, the cold salad bar plates and the delicious tasting meat.  The flavor was always amazing; mainly because of the marinade they used.



Well…I have no idea how my mom got this – but here it is.  The very yummiest marinade EVER.  It’s going on our steaks tonight so they will be perfectly flavored for grilling tomorrow!
