Grilled Marinated Steak with Salsa Verde Sauce

Are you still buying steaks and just throwing them on the grill?  Well, it's time to take your steaks to the next level and marinate them.  You won't believe the difference.   I get asked a lot what I marinate my steaks in and I'm going to share it with you.
