How Long Should you let Steak Marinade:

We recommend marinade your perfect steak with red wine for a minimum of 2 hours. Depending on how much flavor of the marinade that you want, 2 hours is the perfect amount of time.

You can also marinade overnight if you prefer.

The best way to test for doneness is by inserting an instant read thermometer into the thickest part of the steak. Do this through the side, not the top of the steak.
