Marinated, Grilled Chuck Steak

    This steak is a cheaper cut of meat but marinated & grilled it taste like a choice cut of beef. Tender, juicy & FULL of flavor it is the perfect steak for summer grilling!

2,  to 4, 2 "inch thick Chuck Steaks
1 & 1/2 Cups of Coca Cola
3 TBS Olive Oil
2 TSP Minced Garlic
1 TSP Sea Salt
Pepper if you choose to taste
1 TBS Seasonings of your choice that do not have salt ( I used a Greek Seasoning, Italian, Jamaican Jerk, or a Mrs. Dash type seasoning would work) 
2 TBS BBQ Sauce
1 TBS Soy Sauce.
1 TBS Minced Dried Onion
1 TBS Parsley Flakes
Place all ingredients in a large zip lock bag EXCEPT steaks. Shake well to combine. Now add steaks & shake well to get steaks covered with the marinade. Refrigerate over night or for at least 6 hours. Take steaks out of the frig one hour before grilling but leave them in the marinade. Heat grill to medium high. Remove steaks from marinade & wipe off any residue from the marinade. Lay on grill over the flames & grill about 12 minutes per side for well done, test with a meat thermometer for 165 degrees for well done 145 for rare. Plate up & dig in ! Discard the marinade!
