Grilled Strip Steak w/ Mushrooms and Potatoes

I felt that I had struck gold when I tried out a new marinade idea for steaks one day, so simple and fabulous I want to keep it a secret, but so delicious that I MUST share! You may be thinking, 'yeah, yeah, I've heard that before', but my tasters and I agree that this really brings the beef to life!  The fish sauce adds umami notes and  contributes to the  beef 's simple but stunning flavor profile, while the un-sulfured molasses provides depth, color and only the slightest sweetness with major caramelization properties.  Serve with your favorite veggies and starch and the meal will be a winner every time, broiled, baked or grilled!
1 part fish sauce per 2  parts molasses
1 clove garlic, pressed or finely minced
1 tsp. fresh herbs
1 tbsp. olive oil
Whisk ingredients together and place in resealable bag.
Toss steaks in bag to coat and press out excess air and seal.
Marinate at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes.
Grill or cook as desired.  This marinade will accommodate 4 steaks.
